Description

Researched and written in Japan with the full co-operation of the factory, The Book of the Mazda MX-5 Miata is the definitive story of the second generation of Mazda's MX-5 - the car that re-invented the affordable lightweight roadster, a species that was thought to be extinct as the 1990s drew near. Successful immediately, the MX-5 (also known as the Miata, or Roadster) spawned many imitators, but remains the world's biggest selling sports car. The series has now been in production for almost 30 years, with new generations following the concept of the original, much to the delight of fans all over the world.
 

The author

Born in Coventry, the heart of the British motor industry, Brian Long comes from a family with a proud heritage in the automotive and aviation fields. He trained as a mechanical engineer, and worked for a time at his father's garage. Brian became heavily involved in the classic car scene at 19, and says he turned to writing by accident. He has a long association with several major car manufacturers, is a member of the Society of Automotive Historians, and a member of the Guild of Motoring Writers. He now writes full-time and, since 1990, when his first book was released, he has had more than 80 titles published. Brian currently lives with his family in Chiba, in Japan, where they enjoy life with their Dobermann and Thoroughbred racehorse.
