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.
Ayrton is a Genious! The really the best of all time!
My all time idol!
