Excellent & detailed biography of an icon,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Carroll Shelby: The Authorised Biography (Hardcover)
There's never been an official authorised biography of the great Carroll Shelby until now. It's unfortunate that days after the official publication, Shelby should pass away.
Carroll Shelby was one of the larger than life American automotive icons and he collaborated fully with authour Rinsey Mills to produce an excellent and very readable biography. The story of Carroll's life is well told by Mills who obviouly interviewed Shelby's family and friends extensively. The book is well laid out with each chapter being divided into sections meaning the book can be enjoyed in small bites. It's a fascinating story and runs to over 450 pages. All that's missing is an index of race achievements. As motor racing biographies go, this one sets the standard and at £13 on Amazon, it offers exceptional value. I highly recommend it.
