1.0 out of 5 stars Avoid, 3 Oct. 2009
This review is from: Racers (Hardcover)
Richard Williams seemed to have a big problem with Damon Hill when he wrote this book, so what you get is a seemingly endless slag-off of Damon which gets extremly tiresome and detracts from the overall quality of the book. Some sections, such as the one on Fangio, are beautifully written but overall, this is far from a balanced work and disappointingly flawed in my view. Schumacher fans will doubtless love it, however, as Williams clearly lets you know where his loyality lies. Damon of course had the last laugh, as he won the 1996 World Championship, much to the chagrin and surprise of many in the paddock, including Mr. Williams, no doubt, whose previously lauded book - 'The Death of Ayrton Senna" - is so absurdly pro Senna and anti Prost as to be laughable. Too bad, Richard Williams is clearly a very talented journalist but I for one will not be buying any more of his books. Actually, I found Racers in a remainders section of a local bookshop. The original buyer of the book clearly didn't think too much of it, either. I know it was all about 1996 so a long time ago but my advice - Avoid.
