Overview

Confessions from quality control is a light hearted traipse through various car factories around the world. From Ford to Fiat, Hummer to Porsche (and quite a lot of Rover) the author retells stories of the amusing bodges and balls-ups he experienced in the quality department of car manufacturers in the 1990s.

If you've ever found a finger in your new MINI, or a sandwich in your Vauxhall, this book might explain how it got there. The author travels around the world and gets mugged in Poland, lost in China and locked in an asylum in the Czech Republic, but the scariest place of all was Ford in Dagenham.

The story finishes with an epic experiment; a roadtrip to Africa in a fleet of 'industrial unrest Rovers'.

"Hilarious" - TopGear script writer, Richard Porter.
