Bigfoot by Rupert Matthews
Bigfoot by Rupert Matthews
5.0 out of 5 stars Neat Summary..., 16 April 2014
I am open minded to the possibility of the existence of the colloqually named "Bigfoot" and have collected a small library of books both for and against the possibility of their existence. This book, although far from exhaustive, serves as a great introduction to anyone with even the slightest interest in the subject. It is well presented, easy to read, and is written for the common reader such as myself. Their are some intriquing images within which invite debate. What I consider its strongest point however is that it is not preachy, the evidence is presented but not forcefully so. Overall a fine addition to anyones shelf who has an interest in the subject.....
The Brawn Story: The Man and the Team That Turned &hellip by Christopher Hilton
5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding..., 15 Nov 2013
I would recommend this book to anyone with more than a passing interest in the history of Formula One, it delves deep into that remarkable 2009 season which saw the world of F1 turned upside down by Brawn.

Michael Schumacher: The Edge of Greatness by James Allen
5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding., 29 Oct 2013
This is a great book, not so much a biography more a psychological dissection of Schumacher, if, like me, you are a follower of Formula One and particularly if you can remember the man and his career this work will offer answers to why he took some of the decisions he did and also help to understand not just him but the Formula One driver (perhaps all who race and compete) in general. It certainly helps to differentiate between the winner and the mere participant.

Highly recommended.
