Praise for Road Trip


“If you are thinking of making an epic road trip your next big holiday adventure, the latest Haynes publication has to be your starting point. That's because Road Trip, A Practical Manual is packed with expert pragmatic advice as well as details of 50 routes from right around the globe ... [Breslin's] enthusiasm shines through for readers as he fuses valuable information with inspirational anecdotes and hard-earned tips from road trips he has made on six continents.” 

Daily Record


“Haynes' excellent new Road Trip Manual is packed with inspiration and expert advice for organising and driving road trips abroad.” 

Classic Ford



Praise for Pieces of Silver


“The story develops at a cracking pace and the mix of
characters, historical and technical facts combine to provide a compelling read.

Classic Car Weekly


“Its an enjoyable page-turner ... Breslins enthusiasm for his story is genuinely engaging and you soon find yourself wanting to know what happens next to his colourfully drawn characters.

Praise for The Track Day Manual


“Haynes latest offering is not the first book to offer tips on how to get the most out of the [track day] experience. It is one of the best though.”



“This brilliant new book is an ideal way to find out what’s involved with a track day before taking the plunge … Author Mike Breslin conveys the information in an authoritative but not patronising way, and it makes for an entertaining read whether you’re on a cover to cover marathon or just dipping in and out … It’s certainly at risk of being the most thumbed book in the CKC office!’

Complete Kit Car


“This instructive book is very informative and deals with every area of getting on the circuit, from prepping your car to driving techniques … The manual is entertainingly written, well illustrated and easy to follow.”



“Mike Breslin, a former Formula Ford racer, has written this extremely accessible and colourful guide that’s aimed at total novices yet has enough detail to be useful for those who already have experience.”



“There’s all the advice you need, including how to start and where to go, how to drive and info on track-specific tuning, wet weather racing [sic] and other disciplines [that] have a relevance to safer road driving, too.”

Yorkshire Post


“The knowledgeable text, supported by over 200 colour photographs and diagrams, provides everything the complete novice needs to know, yet is also sufficiently detailed to appeal to the vast numbers already involved in the track day scene …”

Wigan Reporter


“Covering everything from the basics to driving techniques and car modifications, this is a great book for anyone thinking of getting in to track days.”



The Track Day Manual by motoring journo and former Formula Ford driver Mike Breslin does what it says on the cover – and a lot more … Full of useful advice, information and anecdotes, it’s a must have for anyone who’s tempted to have a go at experiencing the thrill of handling a car at speed in relative safety.”

Dorset Echo


“Track days are great fun and can be a mind-blowing experience. Former racer Mike Breslin knows just how to get the best out of them – as he explains in his terrific new book … The Track Day Manual is written knowledgeably with everything the complete novice needs to know; but the book is also sufficiently detailed to appeal to the more experienced track day fan.”





Praise for The Unfair Advantage


“This is a pacy work of fiction which combines grand prix racing with a plot which features more twists than a hot lap around Monaco … Could establish Breslin as motorsport’s answer to Dick Francis.”

Motorsport News


“A good novel in estimation needs to pull the reader into a fascinating scene, illuminate interesting human characteristics in a new way and be full of interesting characters. A good novel involving racing needs to avoid the usual simplifications for the unknowledgeable. Mike Breslin’s The Unfair Advantage qualifies.

F1 racing in this novel is intense, fast paced, fascinating and the inside views as teammates struggle with the conflicting needs of themselves and the team, time proven human characteristics of ambition, greed, love, veniality and generosity are all on display. The lead character Eoghan Kinsella is developed enough to warrant a dinner invitation … The in-cockpit racing scenes are realistic and compelling.”
