" I've just received my precious copy of Norman White's Norton Commando Restoration Manual. It is exactly what anyone will expect from Norman, meticulous and detailed, beautifully presented with brilliant illustrations. I feel privileged to have it. I've never seen any vehicle book like it for a thorough dissection of its subject. "
