‘If you treat yourself to just one book this year, Aston Martin & LM10 is a leading contender for your attention. ...a meticulously researched and produced book and it is one you will come back to time after time.'
May-June 2021, p 47
‘A history to set your pulse racing: if you consider yourself an Aston Martin buff, then prepare to be amazed.'
Gordon Cruickshank, April 2021, Volume 97, No. 4, p 30
‘But there is more to the book than simply the story of one car. In fact we are presented with a detailed and most useful history of Aston Martin's early years, up to 1939, with much information on the personalities involved.' ... 'The pleasure in this book comes from the combination of diligent research and Jonathan's accessible writing style: it is simply a good read.' ... 'it is a delightful and welcome supplement to the established Aston Martin canon.'
Aston Martin & LM10, 2021 review by Anders Ditlev Clausager
‘..dieser 330 Seite starke Prachtband ist viel mehr, denn neben der schon bemerkenswerten Geschichte von LM10 erzahlt Wood auch die (Vorkriegs-) Geschichte der Marke und geht detailliert auf die handelnden Personen dieser Geschichte ein.’
Buchbesprechungen, 2/2021, p 100
‘Hugh Palmer and Jonathan Wood have done the subject immense justice. What sets the LM10 book apart is that it does not confine itself solely to the titular motor-car, but it also retells the full story of Aston Martin in the prewar years. Viewing it as two books combined in one, the first is the marque history to which all marque histories should aspire, and the second is so fully and perfectly undertaken as to be real testament to Hugh Palmer’s love for the car.’
Volume 30 No. 1 March 2021
‘The story…really is a fascinating one…that I can thoroughly recommend.’
David Lewington, Volume 54, No. 228 Autumn 2020
‘ ...a beautifully and prolifically illlustrated book..which will make a worthy addition to any Aston Martin enthusiast's library.’
The Bulletin; Neil Murray, Summer 2021, No. 312, p 84.
'This is a superb detailed history of LM10 which also covers much of the history of the company from its origins through to World War Two.'
