3.0 out of 5 stars Slightly Disappointing, 30 May 2011
This review is from: Go Like Hell: Ford, Ferrari and their Battle for Speed and Glory at Le Mans (Paperback)
The good points first: the book doesn't cost much, and it does give an interesting insight into what went on 'behind the scenes', particularly in the United States.

However, this is not the book to buy for a detailed account of the races or indeed the development of the cars involved. For instance, there is no mention at all of Len Bailey, who was responsible for the GT40's front-end redesign which turned it from a wayward beast into a good racing car at a stroke. Maybe because he was British? More pictures of the cars would have been welcome, and I'm pretty sure the picture captioned as a Ferrari P3 is in fact a P4...

All in all, interesting in places, but far from the only book you need ever buy on the subject.
