Alfa Romeo is, for me, maybe the coolest brand there is. It has all the great ingredients: an incredible and successful history, amazing cars and a little bit of "tragedy" every now and then.
It gave birth to Ferrari, it defeated the powerful Mercs and Auto Union. It was destroyed by a war (and a little bit by Fiat group...), purchased by a country,... hardly any other brand has as ups and downs as AR, and it still survives and has a "(re)legion" of fans around the world that don't let poor reliability get in the way of their goddess.
This book is well written, has great photos and is a must have for all alfisti.
