As this book will show, every ending stands at the beginning of something new. Take a ride with us on the fastest, greatest, most awesome, most controversial machines that moved humanity forward.

About the Author


Stepanka Sekaninova used to work as a TV reporter and in the production of children's programs. Now she is a writer and a editor-in-chief, living in the Czech Republic. Tom Velcovsky is a graduate in Audiovisual Production from the Silesian University in Opava, where he specialized in screenwriting and storyboards. Before switching to children's books and the making of comic strips, he worked in advertising. Martin Sodomka was born in 1968 and educated at the Department of Industrial Design Management of the Faculty of Engineering, Brno University of Technology. In 1993 he founded a graphics studio. In 2012 he published, at his own expense, How to Build a Car, the first book in the Technical Tales series; this book was inspired by work he had performed with his own hands on a broken-down 1963 Skoda Octavia, which he later drove through many European countries.
