KIRKUS REVIEW

If you hate fast driving, this book will turn your hair white; if you are a speed demon it will still supply the thrills of a life-time. Written by the holder of many records there is little left to the imagination. Each type racing, road, hill, track, etc. is covered. The famous races are reviewed so vividly you catch your breath at every turn, the unbelievable pitwork with the lightning changes and the ideals, hopes and disappointments of the game are all clearly described. The illustrations are legion and add greatly to the thrilling portrayal of this wild sport. A book that your automobile agencies will want, for it is a record of speed. The history of their product. A book no parent will thank you for selling their offspring, but a book the offspring will buy and love. Eyston's interest in the technical perfection of his cars and his care in every detail will go far to erase the foolhardy appearance of the game. Grand escape reading -- like a ride on a racer dip -- a thriller.
