4.0 out of 5 stars A truly excellent read! 7 Oct 2013
By Mr Ash
Format:Paperback
I recommend this book! Despite a rather unhelpful review elsewhere on this page I believe you will agree that 'Rush to Glory' covers the thrilling duel between Lauda and Hunt comprehensively and shows a clear insider's understanding, by the author, of what went on. There is of course a feature film out at this time covering the same subject matter. I must point out however that this book appears to have been prepared for re-print in paperback well before the film was launched - I have the hardback version (it was printed in 2011). However, with any good author who is 'in tune' with their subject matter, it is perhaps not surprising that this paperback is 'around' at the time of a feature film on the same subject. I would suggest however that this book came first.
This author's style will appeal to most as it does not lose the reader in a maze of facts, figures and jargon, like so many books can on what is after all a fairly specialised subject matter. The fact that this subject matter and the story of these two racing heroes contained within is 'in vogue' with the general public at this time is of course due to the feature film currently showing at cinemas, and, I would recommend this book to both those who have seen the film as well as those contemplating seeing it because the book will help to further understand the 1976 Formula 1 season in all it's glory. The book also has a very insightful Foreword from John Watson - a close friend of both Lauda and Hunt as well of course as being one of the finest F1 drivers of that period. Inevitably, there are existing works on the market on this subject and there will no doubt be further 'new' releases on the run up to Christmas, but I feel this book deserves your attention as it paints a detailed account of what happened in a very readable style. The book is also beautifully illustrated with images from one of F1's greatest photographers............Go enjoy - I did!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Buyer beware! 21 Sep 2013
Format:Paperback
Potential buyers of this book should be aware that, despite the similar title and imagery, this book has no direct connection with Ron Howard's excellent and well-research film "Rush".

This was a great book for someone like me who can't wait to see Rush and really doesn't know a lot of the background story.
Couldn't put it down.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a Story! 20 Jan 2014
By Mebs - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
After seeing "Rush" I just had to read "the real story" and this book does not disappoint. I think the saying that "truth is stranger than fiction" was predicated on just such examples as this......One could simply not invent the Formula One drama that was lived by these two incredibly brave and audacious super stars of the sport......Their lives both on and off the track make for fascinating reading and I was sorry when the story ended......I am officially obsessed with this era of racing and these two men. Amazing.......

5.0 out of 5 stars A very detailed look at an interesting season 4 Oct 2013
By James Pernikoff - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
First, I should point out that this book is not new; it is a paperback edition of a book first published in 2011 as "In the Name of Glory", cleverly renamed to tie in with the new movie on substantially the same topic.

The book rather reads like a movie script, but it appears that that is purely coincidental, and the movie team appears not to have consulted the book in the writing of the actual movie script.

This is a very detailed look at the 1976 Grand Prix season, with particular emphasis, of course, on the rivalry between James Hunt and Niki Lauda. A considerable number of sources are listed in the Acknowledgements, and as a result we find out much about the two drivers' relationships with each other, with their families, their teammates, their team bosses and owners, their women and the press.

I lived through this period, and saw both men win races at Watkins Glen (Lauda in 1975 and Hunt in 1976). Compared with the information available in the motoring press back then, this book adds a lot of substance "between the lines" and I found some of it quite unexpected.

A bonus is the marvelous insert of color photos of the season by the noted photographer Rainer Schlegelmilch, and there is an appendix showing detailed race-by-race results, and a very detailed index.

Now, should you read the book before or after you see the movie? I'd say, both! That's what I did, and the two complement each other quite well. There may be more books released as a result of the movie, but this one is a great start.

I watched the movie Rush and then purchased the book. Gained allot of insights to the lives of Hunt and Lauda.
