John Haynes: The man behind the manuals

Ned Temko (Author)


This fascinating and inspiring biography of John H Haynes - the man behind Haynes Manuals - looks 'under the bonnet' at his extraordinary life, and his legacy to the motoring world. This is the story of how one man's vision and enthusiasm gave a small enterprise in rural Somerset a global footprint.

The story begins with John's childhood in Ceylon and his school days - when as a young entrepreneur he sowed the seeds for what would become the iconic Haynes car-repair manuals - to his time as a young RAF officer, and then as the driving force behind the growth of the iconic Haynes brand and the Haynes International Motor Museum.

This biography will appeal not only to motoring enthusiasts, but a wider audience who will be intrigued by the story of the Haynes family and the business dynamics - exploring the evolution of a global, yet truly British company and brand, led and overseen by John Haynes for 59 years.
