5.0 out of 5 starsEven better than 98 if thats possibleAug. 23 2000
By Lourdes Cantore - Published on Amazon.com
Let me start off by saying that if you are an F1 fan especially a technical one(like myself) you can't pass up this book. If you do not know who Giorgio Piola is, he draws for the weekly magazine AutoSport. He is one of the best artist I have seen. His technical drawings allow you to understand the F1 cars in a technical perspective. Compared to the last edition "Technical Analysis 98", this one is even better. If you don't have the 98 book you should order that one too. I do like the 99 book since it is written in english only as opposed to the 98 which is in italian and english, but thats not a problem. What will really impress you is the attention to detail of the drawings, but they are so easy to understand. Again this is a must for any F1 fan. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

5.0 out of 5 starsIn depth look at F1June 1 2001
By firstname.lastname@example.org - Published on Amazon.com
The best book for anyone who is interested in the technical side of modern F1. The coloured illustration that make up the book are top class, clearly showing the differences between the different cars no matter how minute. The section following the development if Ferrari and McLaren from race to race is superb. Those hoping for an explanation for the different designs and the concepts behind them should look for other books, though I doubt you'll find one thanks to F1's secrecy, but for those who would like to really view the cars in all their beauty there is nothing to match this book.

3.0 out of 5 starsGreat Book but Only at a Reasonable PriceAug. 26 2007
By T. Grim - Published on Amazon.com
I've read this book and own the complete following series.
It's a good reference for that year, but the sport has moved on FAR beyond this and it's lessons are very dated.
If you're interested in current technology, buy an edition from later years/series. If your interested in the technology of the era, look up Peter Wright's "Formula 1 Technology" and compare prices. Wright's book is FAR superior, especially putting the technology in context and especially if the price is nearly the same.
That's even speaking as a Ferrari supporter since the Niki Lauda era...
