A BOOK THAT TELLS IT AS IT WAS,
This review is from: TT Talking - The TTs most exciting era (Paperback)
As a long time visitor to the Isle of Man TT, I am always on the look out for books that tell us about the event in detail from first hand experience.
Charlie has surpassed the criteria for such a book, and I have read it over and over since my son bought it for me for Fathers Day.
He relates a first-hand exciting story of his time in the commentary box at the TT, in this way re-living the Lambert era and all the associated incidents.
it is a very interesting story of not only the race commentary but also how he researched and studied to make sure the facts were correct, and that which he verbally delivered to the public, was enthralling and true. His contacts with the top riders, the background facts and some unique photographs make the book a collectors item for your TT Book Collection.
After 67 years as a TT Fan I thought I knew much about the event but this book has filled a number of holes in my knowledge and therefore I recommend it not only for people like me who are dedicated to the TT and the Isle of Man but also those newly created fans who have caught the TT Bug.
An excellent book indeed .
