    Well told story with a hyperbolic start that thankfully calmed down into a page-turner. Far too many typos for a book though. It needs reediting.

    This is a very well written and researched book.Although I have been involved with motorsport all my adult life,I still learned much about the background of f1 car designing.Despite the technicalities,there is a lot of personal stuff to ensure this is not a dull read.
