Customer Review

on 24 November 2007
Ayrton Senna. The name conjures up many feelings in many people, the greatest ever driver? A vicious and uncompromising racer? a warm and kind individual of many depths? After reading this book the answer is obvious - He was all of that and more, Hilton writes in such a way that you understand everything about the man. Hilton has thoroughly researched his subject, and also speaks from the position of knowing Senna. From wheeling an elderly patient in a wheelchair - to the epic and bitter battles with Prost and Mansell (and also not afraid to expose Senna's more questionable behavior either) this book covers every aspect of Ayrton's life. And more intriguingly he tackles the "second life" Senna's legend has taken on since that fateful afternoon at Tamburello some 13 years ago.

Put simply: It is one of the best books on Formula one and motoracing that I have ever read - and by far the best ever on Ayrton Senna.
