What a rip off,
This review is from: In the Name of Glory: 1976 the Greatest Ever Sporting Duel (Hardcover)
What a rip off this book is. A potentially great subject spoilt by laziness on the part of the author. All he has done is used lumps out of his previous book-Shunt to tell James Hunt's side of the story and rehashed and paraphrased previous books written by other authors -including Niki Lauda's own books to tell Lauda's side. The only new input he has added is salacious gossip regarding the love life of Lauda. Hunt's love life was already recorded in Shunt. What a load of balls and the book add's nothing to the motor racing side at all. Hardly mentions any other driver's performances nor puts the sport into the context of the time. A big disappointment.

I confirm this review. What a shame to treat such a potentially great subject this way... Awful. The pictures are nice but all the rest is pure trash.
