KIRKUS REVIEW

The most interesting part of this memoir-autobiography concerns his estimates of various famous racing drivers and his exposure of certain neurotic characteristics of Fangio's. Fangio, who won four World Championships, is one of the most often mentioned as the world's greatest racing driver. However, whenever he lost while driving a Ferrari, he insisted that he had been sabotaged by the Ferrari Company and was a victim of deceit. Mr. Ferrari succinctly answers Fangio's charges while praising his racing abilities. The great tragedy of Mr. Ferrari's life was the death of his brilliant son Dino, thus prematurely ending a possible Ferrari dynasty in racing. The book begins a bit dullishly with many car statistics and measurements, but once he gets out onto the track with the drivers he's known, things accelerate.
