Ferrari Life Book

I just received some wonderful praise on our first book and decided to highlight it in a sticky thread.

Here is the URL for the book:

http://www.ferrarilife.com/library/book.php

It is also available from our Publisher Brooklands Books:

Review in the latest FOC (GB) bi-monthly publication:

I always like these Brooklands publications, particularly if I own or have owned one of the cars described. This buyers portfolio covers the Dino series, then all the V8 cars up to the 360, flat 12 up to the F512M and V12 through the 365 GT4 2+2 to the 456 GTA, all in reasonable detail.
Written by the Ferrari LIfe team who have complied this with the advice and guidance of owners of these various tipi, it is recommended reading if you are in the the market to buy one of these cars.
Each covers basic history of the model, development, technical overview, driving impressions, maintenance tips and buying advice.
All in all a worthwhile purchase and one for the library.

Looks like its a :thumbup:

Hey, nice! These PDFs are great but it is always best to have a hardcopy in case your "hard" drive turns out to be a floppy after all....

Next Amazon shipment, this baby's in the cart!

I'm really suprised there is hardly any activity on this thread? I would have thought it would stir quite the buzzzz?

Ferrari Life Book

I just received the Ferrari Life Book. I must say it is very nice. Great photography.
A must have book for your Ferrari Library. The first time Ferrari buyer should have a copy when he begins his search.

Andrew and your key guys who helped put the book together deserve an ovation. The book is truly stellar. Having purchased many Ferraris over a number of models and years, your book is concise and direct. It was also an interesting read. Some guides are dry and boring and too technical while others are too photo gallery oriented and soft on content. Your book was a perfect mix of what any buyer wants and needs to know when making a big decision on buying a Ferrari.

I keep one copy in the cigar lounge at Club Sportiva in the Paddock and a second copy on display in the Member's loft on the second floor. I wouldn't have two copies on display if it weren't worthy of a display at a private exotic car club.

Excellent work! When is your next book coming out, or was this one enough work that you are that you are taking a short breather?

Torbin, Thank you. We have a couple more in the works, but it will be a year or two before they are published.
