3.0 out of 5 stars Decently written book let down by bias against Senna, 19 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Death of Ayrton Senna (Paperback)
This book is well written and covers most of Senna's feud with Prost as well as the events that led up to Ayrton's death.

However, it really is told from mainly Prost's perspective and certain paragraphs in the book were quite frustrating as a Senna fan, myself, I would prefer it to have more about Senna's talent and the man himself. Therefore, I am only giving it three stars for this reason as it goes over the top in it's dislike of all things Senna, particularly over the situation when Senna veteod Derek Warwick moving to Lotus, this book basically portrays him very badly in this.

Read Memories of Senna by Christopher Hilton, in which Warwick himself, said 'he was proud to race in an era in which Senna was in it' and also, that he understood why Senna veteod him because Lotus could only have one Number One driver at the time and that despite "Senna destroying his career he was still a fan of him as a driver and a person."

So, The death of Ayrton Senna is a well written but slightly disappointing book in overall opinion.
