All the stories that have done the rounds regarding Sir Frank, Patrick and the team are here as you would hope. But this time the people that were there are coming clean...ish.
If you have read the authors previous works regarding Williams as a Grand Prix team then most of the anecdotes will be familiar, but even so reading Dickie Stanford, Alan Jones,Frank Dernie (even Ron Dennis) telling it how they remember it is great fun. It is also very moving. Piers Courage still seems to be an inspiration to Frank and a rightly so, although Alan Jones still seems to be the the template for a Williams driver.
Why only 4 stars?
The book is printed on cheap paper in a small format and the photographs are few, far between and uninspiring. Except for the last one.
I love this book, but would have happily paid more money for a more satisfying and tactile volume.
In summary - a riveting read, but let down by the lack of photographs (seeing some of their past drivers in their winning cars would have been nice).
Unfortunately the version I received did not have any pictures, which seem to be present in an earlier publication I saw, whether this is by error is unclear and the only reason why I only gave it 4/5 instead of a maximum 5.
