1.0 out of 5 stars Buyer beware!
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".

4.0 out of 5 stars A truly excellent read!, 7 Oct 2013
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!!
