Even if you cannot read English (in which case you would not be reading this review) this book is a worthwhile and fun purchase for any petrol head if simply for the collection of photos.
The book title refers to "sports cars", but the book does not limit itself to that category and attempts to cover touring cars, personal luxury cars, historic cars, etc. I think the title was very poorly chosen, because it also suggests that you might somehow have an opportunity to drive the cars listed inside. For most people, this is an absurd notion (given the entries on pre-war racing Alfas, the Ferrari 250 variants, and other inaccessible pieces of history.)
When writing a book, I'm pretty sure you're not supposed to use Wikipedia as an authoritative source, but I suspect that the author was getting pressure from his publisher at some point to finish up: the Qvale Mangusta is a rather obscure car, and "365 Sports Cars You Must Drive" publishes a couple of facts about it that are even more obscure, and from a book on a different topic. I included these facts when I wrote the text for Wikipedia's article on the Mangusta, where they are now quickly and easily accessible. I would have preferred some original research (or at least research in other secondary sources), but I suspect that "365 Sports Cars" was just stretched too thin.
