5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent book on motorsports, 1 Oct 2010
This review is from: The Unfair Advantage (Driving) (Paperback)
Let me cut to the chase: if you're a fan of motorsports, "The Unfair Advantage" is a must-have.

Mark Donohue was one of the first racing drivers to really put a lot of scientific effort into the development of the cars he raced (thanks to his engineering studies); he was also one of the most successful (and underrated) drivers of his time, winning, and often dominating, in nearly every category he participated in. In this book he recollects his racing career in exquisite detail, from the early days of self-funded amateur racing, right up to the Penske-funded professional races in Can-Am, Trans-Am and USAC (and, briefly, Formula One). What's especially impressive is that Donohue is capable of being emotional and entertaining even whilst describing the most in-depth technical aspects of developing and setting up racing cars.
The color pictures added to this 2000 edition are also excellent, and take you on a trip down memory lane in the 70s.

All in all, this book is wonderful, and it rightfully belongs in the library of every motorsport lover.
