Jeffrey Robert Daniels wanted to be a zoologist when he was a child, but decided there was not enough money in it. He specialised in science and mathematics at school and turned down a place at Cambridge ( Cambridgeshire, England ) to take up a scholarship at Bristol University ( South West, England ), where he read aero engineering. He then worked for the British Air Corporation but the demise of the TSR2 forced a change of interest to cars.
As a motoring journalist, Jeffrey R. Daniels drove 50,000 miles a year and tested practically every production car. He has published articles under his own name and also many road test reports ( anonymous by tradition ).
His special interests were music, gardening and philately. He said he was the right size for rugby ( 6 ft 2 in and 16 stone ) but that nevertheless his main sports were cricket and swimming.
Jeffrey R. Daniels' works include Crash Programme and First Flight ( both published in 1973 )
