BOOKS: On the bedside table of Peter Braithwaite

BOOKS: On the bedside table of Peter Braithwaite - 'I'm re-reading Arthur Hailey's book Wheels. The novel gives a terrific insight into the US automotive industry of the 1970s, when it was very macho, prejudiced and driven by profit at any cost to the individual, let alone the environment. There's a super prediction that by the mid-80s the petrol engine will be dead and the steam engine will rule!
