I've got a job for you by Jim Perkins

I recently bought this limited edition book and thoroughly enjoyed reading it. As I own two Petter engines a PH1 and an AA1 this book was of particular interest to me. It has loads of good quality black and white photographs of Petter engines and installations from yesteryear. I have previously read other plant books such as Cranemakers to the World the history of Stothert and Pitt, and this one is a clear winner being a large format hardback with plenty of interesting text.

Jim Perkins provides an interesting account of his working life as a Petter service engineer which will appeal to plant and engine enthusiasts alike. There are lots of technical tips and useful original documents.
