From the book's introduction:

"Warwickshire, in the heart of England, is a shire of contrasts, with historic castles, winding lanes and pleasant wooded countryside, and also great industrial cities like Coventry and Birmingham. These contrasts are reflected in the county's sons and daughters - writers and poets like Shakespeare and George Eliot: inventors like Sir Frank Whittle and the Cadbury's: trade union pioneers of the calibre of Joseph Arch and Tom Mann: and champions of sport such as Randolph Turpin and Ann Jones. In these pages there is a cross-section of famous names from Warwickshire, but there are many more, to whom equal tribute is due."
