5.0 out of 5 stars A monumental work
It's so satisfying to find someone who can actually write a book on Ayrton Senna. Don't try reading Christopher Hilton's library of ramblings on the subject - he didn't understand where Senna was coming from and wrote 10 books repeating that fact.
Rubython, however, does. This book, a perfect addition to Richard Williams' 'Death Of Ayrton Senna'is staggeringly...

3.0 out of 5 stars no photos with kindle edition
I bought this book in hard back years ago but thought it would be good to get it on kindle fire but was disappointed that it did not include the photos from the hard back copy, which I think should be should be pointed out to anyone thinking of buying the eBook

5.0 out of 5 stars A monumental work, 18 Jan. 2004
It's so satisfying to find someone who can actually write a book on Ayrton Senna. Don't try reading Christopher Hilton's library of ramblings on the subject - he didn't understand where Senna was coming from and wrote 10 books repeating that fact.
Rubython, however, does. This book, a perfect addition to Richard Williams' 'Death Of Ayrton Senna'is staggeringly full. It's the definitive work detailing his early life right up to his death and its consequences in the sport and beyond.
Just flicking through it you spot new and interesting things you didn't know before. The pictures are insightful, if a little too voyeristic perhaps. The style is easy and flowing, but it's the fact that the author respects, not idolises, his subject that he is able to convey a much more concise, measured piece of work.
If you're going to buy one book on Senna, buy this one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great insight, but shame about the repetition!!, 25 July 2013
This review is from: The Life of Senna (Kindle Edition)
The Life of Senna is a fantastic way to gain knowledge of arguably the greatest racing driver of all time. The book is very well written but does repeat itself from time to time - especially during the part detailing the trial in the wake of his death in 1994.

This book is a must for all into motorsport and cars in general and captures the Golden Era of Formula 1 like no other.
