A monumental work,
It's so satisfying to find someone who can actually write a book on Ayrton Senna. Don't try reading Christopher Hilton's library of ramblings on the subject - he didn't understand where Senna was coming from and wrote 10 books repeating that fact.
Rubython, however, does. This book, a perfect addition to Richard Williams' 'Death Of Ayrton Senna'is staggeringly full. It's the definitive work detailing his early life right up to his death and its consequences in the sport and beyond.
Just flicking through it you spot new and interesting things you didn't know before. The pictures are insightful, if a little too voyeristic perhaps. The style is easy and flowing, but it's the fact that the author respects, not idolises, his subject that he is able to convey a much more concise, measured piece of work.
If you're going to buy one book on Senna, buy this one.
