Isambard Kingdom Brunel has always been regarded as one of Britain's great heroes and an engineering genius. His father Marc Brunel has not received the same degree of adulation, but this book will show just how important a part Marc played in his son's works and will also look at his own great achievements.
Marc Brunel had many inventions to his name, but his greatest achievement was in constructing the very first tunnel under the Thames. Isambard spent his early years working for and with his father, who both encouraged him throughout his career and was also able to offer practical help.
This book not only looks at the successes of two great engineers, but also their failures. Primarily, however, it is a celebration of two extraordinary mean and their amazing achievements.
