Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Three names. Three people in one. Born in Portsmouth on 9 April 1806, there was Brunel the great engineer, who would habitually throw out the rule book of tradition and established practice, and start again with a blank sheet of paper, taking the technology of the day to its limits and then going another mile.Then there was Brunel the visionary, who knew that transport technology had the power to change the world, and that he had the ability to deliver those changes. Finally, there was Brunel the artist who rarely saw technology as just functional, and strove to entwine the fruits of the Industrial Revolution with the elegance and grace of the neo-classical painter. His bridges, tunnels and railway infrastructure have entered a third century of regular use, and the beauty of their design and structure has rarely been equalled.The three decades, from the 1830s to the 1850s, saw an explosion of technical excellence, and it was Brunel who in so many cases lit the blue touch paper. He did not always get it right first time, and it was left to others to reap the fruits of his many labours. Nevertheless, his actions fast-forwarded the march of progress by several decades.

Isambard Kingdom Brunel is a huge name in British engineering history and his designs revolutionised public transport and modern engineering. Although his projects were not always successful, they often contained innovative solutions to long-standing engineering problems. During his short career, Brunel not only created the Great Western Railway and constructed numerous important bridges and tunnels, but he achieved many engineering 'firsts', including assisting in the building of the first tunnel under a navigable river and development of SS Great Britain, the first propeller-driven ocean-going iron ship, which was at the time also the largest ship ever built. Adrian Vaughan takes a unique angle in writing this book and delves into Brunet's largely unpublished letters and writings, concentrating on his early diaries, detailing his work in planning and constructing the Great Western Railway, his relationships with assistants and contractors, enemies and dose friends and with his relations, revealing much about this great man. Vaughan aims to make readers feel that they are standing next to Brunel as he works at his desk and are with him travelling through Victorian Britain. They will feel the detail of his worries, his difficulties and tensions and ultimately realise his humanity, his genius and his fallibility.
