5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent recount of his races. But dont expect this to be a biographical account of his life., 7 Mar. 2010
This review is from: Stirling Moss: All My Races (Hardcover)
Stirling Moss wasn't just one of the best Formula 1 Drivers that England has ever produced, but possibly its greatest all-round driver. In this book, Stirling takes us back to his very early days of racing in Club races & Hill Climbs in 1947 in an old BMW advancing through the years, race by race to his Career ending accident at Goodwood in 1962. You have to admire Stirling's ability to recall these events and what happened in the races given how long ago they took place as the detail he goes into in some races is beyond impressive.

The book is set out with each race titled, giving the date & track it was at as well as other little bits of information such as his final position he fastest laps. The format to which the book takes differs greatly from any book I've read thats of a biographical nature and it works very well and looks excellent within this large book's pages. Along with the race accounts are numerous pictures from either Moss's own collection or other 3rd parties, and each of them, from the 2 page spread of Moss racing at Monaco at the books beginning to the very last page is vibrant and excellent in detail.

This isn't a Biography of Stirling Moss's entire life, and concludes after a short paragraph explaining the aftermath of the Goodwood crash, so if it is a life bio your after then you'll have to look elsewhere or wait for Stirling to write one. What this book does offer is a great insight to the racing world through the post-war years through the 50's and beginning of the 60's. Excellent book for any motor enthusiast with a interest in the sport or this era.
