Money & Time Better Spent Elsewhere.,
This review is from: Michael Schumacher: The Whole Story (Hardcover)
Don't waste your money on this book.
I received two Michael Schumacher books for Christmas. This one and the EXCELLENT James Allen one titled MS:The Edge of Genius.
I gave Hilton's book 70 pages but could give no more. I have put it down never to be read by me again. What a tiresome piece of rubbish written by what appears to be a lazy hack. What astounds me is that Hilton has written so many books on Formula 1 drivers.
Hilton's book is nothing more than a tedious race by race, corner by corner account of Schumacher's brilliant career.
How can book about such a tremendous figure be so boring? It's almost as if Hilton sat down and watched the old races on video and has merely written what he has just viewed.
Contrast this with James Allen's excellent book. Allen's is truly insightful filled with interviews and comments from fellow drivers and others in the know. Allen's book is such a terrific read that I really had trouble putting down.
