This review is for the hardcover edition measuring 12 1/2 X 9 3/4 inches.
This is a beautiful picture book with many, many pictures...lots behind-the-scenes as well but the accompanying text is SERIOUSLY inadequate if what you were hoping for is an all over look at Mr. Villeneuve.
I would rather suggest at this time a better overview of him is in Jacques Villeneuve, My First Season in Formula 1 which is slightly smaller but much more about him and his races that just pictures of him.
I had the priviledge of watching him race in Montreal and thoroughly enjoyed it...although he didn't place well that year so being a Quebecois and having followed his dad's career closly I had hoped for great things for him.
Hope this helps.

As a huge JV fan, I have to say this is one of the best books about JV that I have ever seen. I purchased it in 1998 and consider it one of my prized possessions. The photography is beautiful and the story is a definite "candid/behind the scenes" perspective of JV. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who likes JV, or who wants to know who he is and what all the fuss has been about.

The best Villeneuve book on the market! Oct. 2 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The pictures in this book give an impression on his personal life rather than just his career.It is good to be able to get the chance to see into their personal life without mobbing them on the streets.

Meraviglioso... July 29 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I bought this book last year...Good pics (Italian photographer, you know...!), good lines. The impression you get about Jacques is that he's too pure to be true..I think that Gianni Giansanti cought the very essence of this young racing driver. I expecially like the pic at the end of the book, showing Jacques sitting in front of a window open over a big city (San Paolo in Brazil, if I remember well), in the shade, so that you can only get the shape of his body. Wonderful Jacques!

THE BEST JV BOOK I'VE EVER READ. BUY THIS BOOK!!!!!!!!!!!!!! April 20 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
As soon as you open the book, the photos jump out at you. If you read F1 Racing magazine and enjoy the pictures they have in there, you will love the pictures in this incredible collection of JV shots.

AN EXCITING LOOK AT ONE OF F1'S YOUNG GUNS Sept. 11 1998
By George Slafko(BECK07@webtv.net) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
A BRILLIANT BOOK!! THROUGH SPECTACULAR PHOTOGRAPHY, THE READER NOT ONLY SEES JACQUES THE F1 CHAMPION, BUT JACQUES THE EVERYDAY PERSON. PHOTOGRAPHER GIANNI GIANSANTI GIVES F1 FANS A BEHIND THE SCENES LOOK OF A DRIVER ON THE F1 RACING CIRCUIT. IT IS A MUST FOR ALL JACQUES VILLENEUVE FANS, BUT WILL BE ENJOYABLE FOR ALL FANS OF MOTOR RACING.
