Top Customer Reviews

Format: Hardcover
Mark Hughes is one of the more literate and enlightened journalists covering contemporary F1 and in this book he casts his eye over the history of the sport from the inception of the World Championship in 1950. The focus is on the men at the top and the background and atmosphere of the sport, the narrative and photographic captions giving a lot of insight into the history. Hughes writes with his usual wit and economy, telling the tale in broad brushstrokes that won't disappoint both F1 experts and the more general reader.

The book is primarily photographic though, drawing heavily on the Sutton Images catalogue - it's not quite up with Schlegelmilch's illustrated books but the selection and repro is of a very high standard.

One of the better one-volume F1 books, with enough mordant wit in the narrative to keep me coming back for more than just the pictures.

Wow, what a book!!! I got this book as a gift for Christmas, and I couldn't put it down. The entire scope of Grand Prix racing is covered, from it's beginnings to the end of the 2004 season. Great writing, and spectacular photographs. This book will definitely occupy a place on my bookshelf.

Ordered as Christmas present for my son. I was very impressed with the excellent service I received from Amazon, never realised Christmas shopping could be so easy! It's brilliant being able to read customer reviews before deciding. Unfortunately I can't give an informative review of the book itself other than to say my son was chuffed to bits! Many Thanks!

By D. Campione - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
If you like Formula One Racing, you've got to have this book. I bought it for my husband for his birthday and when he got it he just marveled at the great photography and writing.

I found myself spending time reading it as well. Just an amazingly well crafted book for the Speed Addict in all of us.

HASH(0x92823d80) out of 5 stars A wonder Coffee Table Book for Race Enthusiasts 8 Sept. 2013
By Terry A. Stewart - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is the best book I've seen of Formula 1 racing from the Post WWII modern era up to today. The photos are amazing and pure pleasure to see.
Since I've lived through most of these racing years, the book felt like a documentation of all those years I was a race fan.

Great table top book. The photos are stunning. Go great with the other F1 books from Mark Hughes. It could have a little more text but still well done! A+
