I've been waiting for confirmation this has been published. I've got one ordered.

'Granville Bradshaw: a flawed genius?' by Barry Jones, ISBN 978-0-9556595-4-6

Review- http://www.realclassic.co.uk/books/granvillebradshaw.html

He's the designer(!) of the worst aero engine ever.

Turns out this book is a moderate sized, soft-covered volume.
Fairly average presentation with photocopy-type pictures.
Not much new info on the "Dragonfly" aero-engine. Sadly, the author continues to perpetrate the myth that the Dragonfly engine had a "poultice head". Not true, Barry!
