Aston Martin

“For car buffs, the “Superstar Cars” series is a dream come true. Pre-teen boys will gravitate to the books’ appealing covers, each of which showcases a flashy, beautifully designed vehicle. A table of contents, a glossary, an index and a timeline are provided as well as a list of books and web sites for further study. The web sites are all current and well chosen. Car aficionados will find these titles highly engaging. Readers, start your engines!” ---CM Magazine highly recommends, 12/2012 ...“In seven chapters, this book details the history of the Aston Martin legacy since the early 1900’s in England. Includes artistic influences, changes in the company, and racing awards. It almost reads like a history book as you see the changes that take place in the car because of historical events over the years. Discusses the use of the car in the James Bond films, the takeover by Ford in 1994 and sale again in 2006. Ends with a timeline, bibliography, websites, and index. Recommended.” ---Arlington Independent School District, 01/13
