My wife gave me this book as a gift and I couldn't wait to read it. I have an extensive motor racing book collection, and I work in the business. However, after skimming through the book on a Saturday morning, I was disappointed. The book is filled with inaccuracies. Since the authors are European, I expected some misunderstandings with regard to auto racing in the U.S. Unfortunately, there are misunderstandings in their history of F-1 racing and Prototype racing as well. Additionally, although the photos are impressive, most are from the more recent years of racing as opposed to 'The Century.' And the photo captions are so poorly laid out, that it is difficult to quickly find the description of a particular one. There are much better books on the market. (Please don't tell my wife.)
