This is an amazing book. It is exactly as the publishers synopsis indicates - a truly wonderful photographic account of Formula One racing during the 1960's. Some photo's are a bit on the blurry side - but these are made up in quantity and variety and there are some absolutely stunning photo's of the era. Most of the images are backed up with interesting anecdotes that provide highly entertaining and informative reading.
The book is very well laid out - each year is preceded with a short and concise summary of events that take place that year and is concluded with a page of data covering teams and drivers, results etc. Very concise and not overdone as is the case with so many books of this type.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who cherishes the memories of the Formula One era of the 1960's.
The cars are magnificent; stick thin tyres, mirrors you couldn't see to shave in and safety measures so poor that if they were doubled, it meant that somebody had put a second hay bale out.
I cannot allow the criticism of some of the photos for their lack of sharp detail. remenber, the cameras used then were of a design that had changed little from WW2-and as any schoolboy nows, blur = action.
Haynes-Amazon are to be congratulated on these books. You can actualy smell the burning rubber.
I was born in 1954 - the drivers of the 60s were my heroes - but many magazines had mostly black and white pictures with just a few colour ones.
This book contains a good selection of colour pictures of F1 cars from each year. It includes the famous drivers but also some of the less well known drivers / cars. The picture captions point out some of the more relaxed attitudes of the 1960s (spectator access to pits etc) and lack of safety precautions - some of which now seem just reckless.
If you are not interested in this period this book will not interest you (so if your partner is into current F1, you will be taking a big risk buying this as a gift).
Good value at the price via Amazon - this could be a future collectors item.

This is a really good book. If you want in-depth facts and figures, this book will not provide that as it was not supposed to. Read morePublished on 29 July 2011 by Mr Mugambo
