VELOCE'S FIRST eBOOK!



Veloce Publishing recently published book on Preston Tucker and other great automotive innovators and innovations has been so well received, and is such a great read,  that we decided to make it our first eBook. We are particularly proud that the conversion to eBook was done entirely in house. Initially the Preston Tucker eBook is available only for Apple devices (iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch) and is downloadable via the iBooks app which will also allow sample pages to be viewed. Although the eBook costs less, its content is identical to the physical book so it represents great value for money.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Arvid Linde is a car enthusiast and an appreciator of eccentric design ideas. He has an MSc degree in Car Engineering and Logistics but has currently found himself on a career path of new media marketing.
Arvid is Estonian. He worked as a car journalist for more than 10 years before moving to the UK. He now edits electriccarnews.co.uk website where he tries to unravel the dilemma of whether the electric car is the answer to the green motoring needs of the 21st century, or just another political gimmick.
The constant dissatisfaction with some of the modern car design tendencies has worked for him as an inspiration to recall the times when engineers were more passionate about cars.
