The author was the New York Times sports foreign correspondent during the years covered in the book and it is written from personal knowledge and experience.
I highly recommend it!
The first 30 pages are detailing the star drivers and seems like a lot of filler. Then there are lots of photos of static cars in the paddock. It has to be said, some of them are superb. Page 90 is where we finally get a sequence of photos involving moving cars, at the start of the race and, again, several are brilliant. By page 100 we are into the racing action, with this page showing Ascari racing by, looking at the car just behind and to his right, grinning away! Amazing! There are just about enough photos of this quality to justify the price, but there are other photo-books available that I would have preferred to spend my money.
