He'll sell it to you direct, he quoted me $195 USD. It's self-published.

Eventually I will get it. Unless I get a copy for my father instead. Either way is fine with me.

(You can google search it, but just be aware that one page will suggest a price of $150, and Janos has told me that's an error.)

I've got Muzza's book - twice - both signed (don't quite know how I pulled that one off); but that's a post-exam treat to read it!
At the minute I'm reading Perry McCarthy - Flat Out - Flat Broke , quite possibly the funniest motorsport book I've ever read!

Yes Asp, I must get hold of a copy of that. Always had a bit of a soft spot for Perry, after all the problems he's had. Always struck me that, without a sense of humour, he would have gone under years ago!

Currently distracted from my motorsport reading by Michael Moore's "Stupid White Men". I know it's not a motorsport related book but I highly recommend it.

My question is if this were a Formula 1 Books thread, would Ayse have made it a Hot Topic?

The following sportscar books are a must, if you can afford them:

"Time & 2 Seats" - Janos Wimpffen - GET IT GET IT GET IT.

The 2 volume History of Le Mans with photos of almost every car to have taken part.

The following are worth searching out second hand:

"Endurance Racing" - Ian Briggs; lots of photos of unusual machinery (Veskanda, Ceekar), covers the Group C and IMSA very well.

As many Le Mans 24 Hour yearbooks you can get.

The following should be quite cheap second hand:

"Directory of World Sportscars" - Michael Cotton (Group C, IMSA)

"Directory of Classic Sports-Racing Cars" - Mike Lawrence (50s)

"Directory of Sports Prototypes and GT Cars" - Anthony Pritchard (60s) (these 3 are part of a series by Aston Publications, they go through makes in an A-Z style, quite comprehensive but with odd omissions, e.g. no Isolia in the Cotton one).

The 5 Ken Wells books covering Le Mans, 1986-90.

For reference:

"La Sport e suoi Artigiani" - Curami - even for non-Italophones the photos are mint. Italian sportscars of the 1950s.

"Red Arrows" - Gianni Marzotto - Ferraris in the Mille Miglia.

The various Brooklands reprints covering Le Mans, the Targa and Mille Miglia.

Still available new - and at a bargain price (£49!) - "The French Sports Car Revolution" - Anthony Blight (late 1930s).

Possibly........

Seriously though, I know both Hobson and I are very keen to make sure that interests other than GPL and computer games are catered for here. I don't propose to make every non-GPL thread sticky, but I do want to draw the attention of newcomers or infrequent visitors to the fact that there are quite a few different things to discuss here.

Fair enough. I like a bit of variety too. That's why i decided to start the modeling thread, and now there's a slot car thread too again which is great.

Trouble is, he starts with a theory and bends the facts to fit it, rather than vice versa. Entertaining, but not great journalism. Then again I'm a P J O'Rourke fan.

If there is any rally fans, I'll recommend 'Rally Cars' of Reinhard Klein.

In order to keep the "sticky" threads under control, number-wise, I now merged the two "books" threads. Keep those recommendations coming in people!

I'm currently reading "Life in the Fast Lane" by Eddie Irvine, pretty good.

I don't know if you can read Portuguese or Spanish, Ayse, but there's a great book about Ayrton named "Ayrton Senna", written by Francisco Santos. Santos has published a F1 yearbook for Spain and Portugal for 30 years now as well.

I have the Senna book and the yearbooks since 1995, but I don't know any way you lot would be able to get them...
