Maybe a bit obvious but I enjoyed Supermac - the Phillip MacCallen biog.

'Being There' Hugh Anderson's autobiography is an excellent read. It's a well written book with plenty of TT related content.

going back a few hazy decades - Was Ken the guy who did the Welding Service in the paddock ?, if he was the intricate job he did on my radiator with gas and alloy rod welding was amazing, all my crew reckoned it was too thin to weld and would disappear the second a torch went near it ... how wrong they were.

Jon Ekerold's book - The Privateer is a good read about how he won the world championship on his TZ 350.
