One of the first books to be published about the new MINI was this one: New MINI by Graham Robson from 2002. The book covers the beginnings of the MINI from the BMW takeover of Rover, early concepts like the Spiritual and ACV30, initial marketing, moving to Plant Oxford, and the launch in 2001.
In 2005, a second edition was published with sixteen addition pages of updates including the 2005 model refresh, the MINI One D, and the MINI Convertible.
