A Best Buy Sept. 22 2010
By Paul - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
After thinking "Brothers Rodriquez" was the best book I had on this era of racing, I got this. Amazing picture clarity....from angles close to the car (dangerously allowed back then). What is most mind boggling is the knowledge contained in most captions....often the car serial number. Driver's name and Team name with tidbits of why the car broke down, how long did the driver live past this event (often losing their life racing somewhere else), and other bits of trivia that fill in gaps in your knowledge. After getting this, I pre-ordered the up coming book featurning 1950-59. I rate this an A++/Must Buy.

Gearhead's review March 11 2010
By W. Barker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is my 4th Paul Parker book and this one as the others is wonderful. If you're a fan of this era (and I certainly am) then you can't help but enjoy this book. The pictures are a treasure trove with insightful but minimal commentary. Just what I want: accurate and succinct text with very good photography.

I highly recommend this book or any of Paul Parker's books. The titles tell you exactly what you're getting.

Memories of a great era Feb. 6 2010
By Eric Wishart - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I loved the sports cars of the '60s, and will always remember the Ford/Ferrari battles at Le Mans and the dramatic finish in 1969. I fell in love with the Ferrari 250 LM and still think it is one of the most amazing cars the Scuderia ever produced. If you remember the era buy it, if you're too young, this is a good way to discover it.

Slightly disappointed Dec 30 2012
By teddyjackeddy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book had the opportunity to be great. I mean, what better subject matter could one ask for? However, to my eyes, it was a bit of a letdown. Very 'Ferrari - centric' if you'll allow that contraction ; not that such is necessarily bad, as I certainly appreciate the cars from Maranello as much as most and more than many, but enough so as to skew the readers view of the times in my opinion. The reproduction/clarity of photos was certainly not up to my expectations either, but the quality and uniqueness of the photos themselves are off the chart.
I also felt somewhat let down by some of the commentary/captioning. There seemed a sense of 'hipsters' condescending cynicism scattered throughout, coupled with a tinge of veiled anti-American sentiment in a few places.
That said, I still would recommend the book highly for anyone interested in the subject matter, especially when purchased through Amazon at less than retail!

Good book if you are a fan of sports car racing from the 60's Feb. 22 2008
By Gary M. Gudinkas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Basically a picture book of 60's sports car racing. Good reproduction quality. I enjoyed it, but to not look for much editorial content.
