I always loved Christopher Hilton's biographies on Formula One drivers and this one has special place in my heart. I found Senna to be a complex and interesting man who faced many challenges to fight for his dream of driving in F1. Anyone who has migrated between continents will know what this is like irrespective of talent. Thoroughly enjoyed.

A return to form for celebrated motorsport author Christopher Hilton. A well researched hard hitting (ugly in places) warts and all overview of perhaps the greatest racing driver of the last century. The fact that Senna himself referred to the work as "A book you can rely on" clearly shows that Hilton got it right.

The hard edge of genius just about says it all. One of my great sporting idols Senna was committment personified. A wonderful account of his life and achievements.
