5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding, 25 July 2013
This review is from: The Bluebird and the Dead Lake: The Classic Account of how Donald Campbell broke the World Land Speed Record (Sports Classics) (Paperback)
This book was tells the story of Donald Campbell's courageous bid for the land speed record in 1964. Campbell himself commissioned John Pearson to write it, but don't let that fool you. Pearson does not hold back on his description of Campbell the man, and how his quest to become the fastest man on earth consumed him, and left him lost, notwithstanding his ultimate success. The book is immensely readable in its own right, portraying the incredible heartbreak and frustration that Campbell had to endure before the record was broken. If this book had not been written at the time, this important episode would have been lost to history. An incredible book for enthusiasts and non - enthusiasts alike. Buy this version or an original 1965 reprint. You will not be disappointed. Far more gripping than any fiction,
