Isambard Kingdom Brunel was a man with a brilliant brain for design, and never tired of building new and exciting things - the deepest tunnel, the longest bridge, the fastest train.
For Brunel, the average and the ordinary were just not good enough. He was a perfectionist and a control freak. And he would stop at nothing to complete a project, even when it meant taking hair-raising risks...
This fascinating and lively biography is a perfect introduction to Brunel for older children and adults alike.
