Being Scottish and also a life-long motorsport fan, I have read quite a few books on Scottish Motorsport, some of which are acknowledged in this book; however the author has still managed to unearth some new material that I have not previously read anywhere else.
I was slightly disappointed to find out that it is currently only available to download as a digital book, but I was still keen to read it and so this title has become my introduction to digital books! I don't have a Kindle, however it is possible to read it on your home computer - its easy (and free) to download the required software from Amazon (it even includes 3 free books!) so how could you justify not trying it when this book only costs 77p!!?!
If it ever becomes available as a 'real' book I would still buy a copy. It's well-written and informative, the only improvement I could suggest would be to include more period photographs.
Much later in the early seventies I stayed in Yeaman Place in Edinburgh which is just down from Merchiston Mews. I am still a Scottish motor racing fan who now stays in Fife within ten miles of Knockhill. I would happily recommend this book to anybody with similar interests to my own Motor Sport & Scottish History.
In Phantoms and Shadows the author takes us on a fairly comprehensive tour of Edinburgh's motor sport past. From the legendary Ecurie Ecosse team to the disused, but not gone race track at Ingliston, this small book is highly detailed and full of facts and titbits, many of which I had not previously known.
Anyone with an interest in motor sport or Edinburgh, should buy this informative and well written book, you'll definitely learn something new!
