Book recommendation

I had to go to Greece for a few days last week, and knew I would have limited internet access, so decided to take a book for company, Enzo Ferrari, A life by Richard Williams (published by Yellow Jersey Press, London - RRP 6.99).

It's a great biography of the man and concentrates heavily on his life just after WW1 firstly trying to make his name as a racing driver, and then running the Alfa racing team during the inter war period, before setting up Auto Avio and then Ferrari.

It was a great read, one of those books that you don't want to put down. Well worth looking out for if you want to find out more about the man and about the great racing drivers and engineers from the 20's through to the 60's. People like Campari, Guy Moll, Antonino Ascari, Tazio Nuvolari, Farzi, Alberto Ascari, and all the great people behind the scenes at Ferrari.
