This book is true story written in the style of a fast moving novel. The battle between Ford and Ferrari in mid-1960's sportscar racing has been recounted in other books in much greater detail than here, but this work delivers something that a normal worthy factual tome could not. It is an absolutely enthralling, thrilling page-turner that leaves you craving for more when you reach its last page. As a hardcore race fan, I already knew most of the story, but the book still told me a lot I didn't know. If you have only a casual interest in the sport and its history, this is an ideal book to read.
