Customer Review

Reviewed in the United States on January 3, 2020
This review is based on the Kindle edition, not that it makes any difference...
First, there are NO PHOTOS of any kind in this book! That within itself is outrageous. I am sure there are readers who don't know the difference between Formula One class, GT class, and Prototype class race cars. Some of the most famous cars in all three classes are mentioned in this book, but no photos. Some of these cars. arguably, were the most beautiful of their type ever produced, but no photos!
Second, some of the most legendary and famous drivers are mentioned in this book, but not a single photo of anyone!!
Third, 35% of this book is taken up by the "footnotes, bibliography, index, and acknowledgements" at the end of the book.
Finally, this book ends abruptly with the Fords' victory at Le Mans even though the rivalry with Ferrari continued long after that race.
It was a big disappointment considering how much more the author could have put in the book to make it really come alive for the reader...
