In this meaty paperback, published to mark the tenth anniversary of Ayrton Senna's death, Christopher Hilton marries and updates four of his earlier titles about the legendary driver into one volume of more than 100,000 words.

It is a fast-moving and comprehensive account of an extraordinary life that will appeal to the wider public as well as to Senna fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unbiased and thorough May 22 2006
By Pablo M. Coronel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Very thorough recount of Sennas life by someone who followed his carreer closely.
Each of the events are well written and exceprts of interviews from all the sides are included. Very unbiased !
It took me a few days to read, I enjoyed and my heart leaped with excietement remebering each season, each headline, etc.
A fantastic recollection of the Incident in Suzuka, and of "the lap" at Donnington.
But as soon as I arrived to Saturday Apr 30th 1994 my eyes were filled with tears and had to put the book back.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very informing for Senna fans Jan. 9 2007
By Gudjon Gudmundsson - Published on Amazon.com
I don't want to write a long review since I don't think of myself as a qualified book reviewer.

I was and am a true Ayrton Senna fan so the book was almost mandatory for me to own, it gave me good insight into what he was like and what modivated him through his short but very successful life.

I recommend this book to anyone who truly is an F1 and Ayrton Senna da Silva fan and has some questions about his career as a driver.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good read, obviously by a big fan of Senna's Nov. 13 2009
By Vince Dattoli - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This was the second of the more focused books about Senna I have read so far, and it was very interesting. The author seemed a bit in awe of Senna's accomplishments, and was obviously a big fan. Though it elevated the point of view at many times to make Senna appear to be an absolutely awesome gifted driver, it couldn't help revealing that Senna was a very driven man. Pun intended. It created the portrait of someone almost in another world when it came to winning, to the point that it seemed as if he didn't even see his fellow drivers as people, but just as annoyances who were getting in the way of his being first to finish. It wasn't as if they were all in it together, competing, all pushing for the championship, and being gentlemen about it, but just that HE was, and get out of my way. It's very clear he was very skilled, and his accomplishments were impressive, but a good sportsman would be a hard title to bestow upon him. To him winning was everything, no matter what, and begs the question, is it?

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Insight July 17 2007
By Shahruzaman Abdul Rahim - Published on Amazon.com
Very detailed. Better if more pictures were added.
Truly explains how unique Senna was mainly as a driver and in all that he does. Without a doubt, he was the greatest.
