Excellent portray of a motoring Hero.

Touching, tradgic and enjoyable. 3 words out of a possibly endless amount that could sum up this book and Gille's Villeneuve's life. Donaldson does the most wonderful job of bring to life Villeneuve. Starting from his early life in Canada, through to being an adored hero to countless millions, the auther brings to life every aspect of this extraordinary person. Despite the tradgic ending, there is something uplifing about finishing this book, and its nice to hear about the era in which Gilles lived. His life may have ended in Belgium 1982, but the Gilles Villeneuve legand will continue for as long as people race cars.
