3.0 out of 5 stars Good book, but you won't read it twice, 12 April 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Gilles Villeneuve: The Life of the Legendary Racing Driver (Motor sport) (Hardcover)
Gilles Villeneuve is now very often considered to be one of the greatest / fastest / most heroic F1 drivers of all times. This may be true and Donaldson's book has surely added to this belief. From a real biography, however, I would expect more objectiveness than Donaldson provides. His book contains a lot of detailed stories of GV's life and of F1 from 1978 - 1982 and therefore it is interesting to read. However, GV is not seen really critical. In that sense the book is more or less for fans. The reader doesn't get to know the twitches in GV's character (maybe only once, when GV's private escapades are mentioned) and his driving style is not really criticised at all. It seems as if the author did not look for other than positive statements about GV.
