I'm sorry to say this about the book (Go Like Hell), but I got to the last page. I wish it were longer. All those black and white pictures some of us have, now are seen in color with new information and conversations from reading the book. The story of CS driving the writer to the airport and discussing Ken Miles was very telling about the inner man-Carroll Shelby. A good book to give for a present to someone who appreciates the intertwined history of the Duce, CS, and Enzo. You couldn't dream up a better story to make into a movie.
The book is certainly "vivid and rich". The storytelling is so good that it is like watching the movie while you read it. There is a script being written and from what I've been told may be nearly done. It'll be interesting to see how long it takes to name the cast and see how long to begin production.
