KIRKUS REVIEW

The world's most famous racing-driver, Moss went off the track last year at 120 mph. This year, after recovering, he went back to the same track, tried himself out on it, decided his reflexes were a shade slow, and that it was time to retire. He is 33. He dictated most of the contents of this book into tape during a dialogue with Ken Purdy. The result is not autobiography but an anatomy of a racing-driver, his personal discipline. It is fascinating, often subtle and full of rapid insights. On death, Moss has more comments thant Hemingway on toreros, and many are classics of romanticism. Very fine
