Book choice...

Hello everybody,
Do anyone of you all own or have read the following books:
Scarlet Passion - Ferrari Sport Prototypes,
L'altro Ferrari - Luci e ombre sull'uomo di Maranello
Ferrari Granturismo Sport Prototipi
The complete Ferrari (by Keith Bluemel)
and last but not least Ferrari Opera Omnia.

What do you think of them, are they worth buying as good pieces of Ferrari history (and for a Christmas present for me it must be said... :green: )

Thanks

I have "Scarlet Passion-Anthony Pritchard". I don't like to recommend anything because we all have different tastes but I think its a good book. Great period photos and loads of information. 8)

thanks Marlin (and Dr Bob :green: ), that's a nice advice...

And still the question : has anyone heard of Ferrari Omnia, and what is its quality ?

This is one I have on oreder at a local bookstore. I havent gone in to see whether it is worth owning or not, but maybe one of you guys has read it before/has it?

Thankfully if I dont want the book after its been specail ordered I dont have to buy it.

I do have it ! After an inquiry to remember what's in it (I'm not at home these days), I can tell you it's about 125 pages and is from 2002. There are mostly photographs in that book (from the production lines, some engine drawings, model pics...). But don't expect to find some "Maranello secrets" in it, but rather some Maranello inside view.
An interesting book to own in spite of that, the same conclusion I would find about almost every Ferrari book, for there's always something to learn in them (maybe I'm a little too much addicted, or too young to be critical enough...).

Good read !
