I was looking forward to a good book on Carroll Shelby, but instead I got a book about Phil Henny's life with very little about Carroll Shelby. Do I care that Henny developed the dry sump system and had his oil pans made in India - not at all. The little there was about Carroll Shelby (and even less about Carroll at Le Mans) was nice thus the two stars but over all a waste of money.

While I enjoyed the stories about all of the author’s connections in racing and how he broke in was very interesting, this book badly needs an editor. Between topics jumping all over the place and many misspellings or typos , it detracts from the main story

This was an interesting book, not riveting by any means, however, it does provide insight to how thing actually happened during this time. While this does not fall into the "must read" category, most any car guy would appreciate it.
If your interested in the Shelby story and want to know background info, read Phil Henny's books. He gives a good look into the time and personalities of that small slice of the Shelby people who made the history.
