Good History Mar 19, 2007
This book covers the development of the original NA type mazda mx5 miata. With each chapter by the person in charge of that part of the project. Some overlap between chapters, but a good history of the development of this car.
Not enough material, translated from Jap. and reads like it Feb 6, 2005
I was hoping to get great inside stories about development of miata from the Program Project Manager and his team members in this book. What i got is a bad read, very skimpy, often repetitive (same info is given by many members in thier respective chapters). This book is a joke, the contributors needs to be interviewed by a decent writer who then should write a book with proper flow .... and in English. The book is translated from Japanese and got goofy English translations at places. Not worth the price. The Plus points includes "mentions" (i can't use the word "details") of the thought and goals behind creating various components like the soft top, bumper, backbone, Power Plant Frame, body etc. as well as photos of early prototypes (clay models) and speciality miatas (Created by M2 division)
