KIRKUS REVIEW

Emphasizing the unique contributions of the Big Five of automobile racing -- Germany, France, England, Italy and the United States -- Men at Speed is a fund of sought after information about racing and racing drivers. Mr. Rudeen, a staff writer for Sports illustrated. Is obviously a devotee of the Speedway; stressing its glamour, he mentions its dangers only perfunctorily, lapses into near hero-worship of the all time international champions. There are good analyses, however, of European-favored open road racing vs. American track racing, strong and weak points of currently competing race car makes, and the probable future of the sport.
