5.0 out of 5 stars Book review
This is a very interesting and highly readable book. Makes a refreshing change to read about the personal memories and opinions of a true motor racing fan, and not a supposed expert. This is not a book full of dry and dull statistics. Highly recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars One of the weirdest* books I've bought (*in kind of a nice way)
First, it's a smaller, thinner and more lightweight book than I was expecting for the price. One racing fan's selection of a handful of the best races from the past half-century of F1 - Nurburgring '57, Adelaide '86, to Canada '11 (oddly, Le Mans 1969 also gets included).

First, it's a smaller, thinner and more lightweight book than I was expecting for the price. One racing fan's selection of a handful of the best races from the past half-century of F1 - Nurburgring '57, Adelaide '86, to Canada '11 (oddly, Le Mans 1969 also gets included). I describe it as weird because it comes across as a hobbyist's notes/thoughts transferred to a professionally printed book. Had it been self published by the author using amateur DTP software, then the look would fit the content. What I can't understand is how this particular fan, Mr May, managed to convince a publisher like Veloce to produce whatever-number of copies of his personal 'take' on the sport. It is readable. It is interesting, in the same way that hearing the thoughts of (almost) any passionate fan is interesting. But do Mr May's opinions belong in a proper book any more than a million or three other fans' opinions? I'm not convinced. Although the book gives no clues I suspect Mr May is something of an insider to, if not motorsport, then publishing (I was actually reading it wondering if he was related to - or was - the owner of Veloce). I'm sure many more fans would love to see their 'notes' in a book, and, blunt though it is to say so, I'm sure that one in every two or three would be able to produce content at least as readable as this author's effort. Which, as I said already, doesn't mean the author shouldn't have written it or that it's not interesting. Just, well, weird...
