Enzo Ferrari: A Life by Richard Williams

The definitive biography of one of the towering figures of the 20th century.

For tens of millions of people around the world, a single name evokes the world of speed -- Enzo Ferrari. Today's Formula One, a billion-dollar business with a vast TV audience, would be unthinkable without the Ferrari cars on the grid. Win or lose, Ferrari attract more fans than all the other teams combined. And the cars' unique appeal -- their mystique, their myth -- has its origins in the story of one man with a dictator's will and the cunning of Machiavelli. Going back to the origins of "The Old Man", tracing his remarkable rise to prominence, and using sources which have hitherto remained silent, Richard Williams, tells the story of a man who was one of the key figures of sport in the twentieth century, and whose influence over his sport is undiminished today, more than a decade after his death.
