Each of these publications is a leader in its own particular field. No other book publisher in the world has access to such an exclusive and authoritative collection of information, and that is why the contents of Power And Speed will be such as can be found nowhere else.

Complete technical accuracy coupled with attractive presentation has been achieved, whilst anything of a "blood and thunder" nature has been deliberately excluded. That kind of stuff, which is often an insult to the intelligence of the average young man, can be acquired in vast quantities for a few pence.

Every chapter of Power and Speed has been carefully prepared by experts who are recognized authorities on each particular subject. All the reading matter has been specially written by the appropriate Editor, Sports Editor, and/or Technical Editor and in addition there is a number of unusually interesting articles by men who have achieved great things on land, on the water, and in the air. These special articles are not of the usual type of superficial story which can be found in the more popular newspapers and periodicals in fact they contain much inside information which has never previously been published. 

The illustrations are almost entirely the work of our own staff of artists and photographers and are therefore exclusive to Temple Press publications. The mechanical line-drawings of motor vehicle chassis and aeroplanes are without parallel in their absolute accuracy and clarity.
