    A book in search of a proofreader!

    One of the aspects that makes this book intriguing, is that it covers the time span from just before Shelby started racing, up to the point when the new GT500¿s started production. The book attempts to span roughly 60 years of Shelby¿s life - trying to cover them in just chapters or a condensed book naturally won¿t cover his entire history in depth. However an admirable attempt is made. Where this book falls short, & there is a huge weakness here, is it¿s quality ¿ spelling, grammar, repeated words, use of both a current & past tense next to each other like he couldn¿t decide which one to use & forgot to go back & delete one of them, as well as historical & technical errors. If any book has ever called out for an editor & proofreading, this one is it! It would make the basis of a good first draft, if he had only had a proofreader or editor go over it & make the numerous corrections first. If one can look past the poor quality & errors, it makes for some interesting reading, as long as one doesn¿t attempt to take it as ultimate source for Shelby info.
