    1 thought on “The Death of Ayrton Senna

    1. Informative, fast-paced and interesting. I am impressed by Richard Williams' style of writing. Having read and loved 'The Life Of Senna' by Tom Rubython, I was eager to get started on 'The Death of Ayrton Senna.' It is just as good - maybe even better.

    2. Ignore the sensationalist title, this is the real deal: a proper book about Ayrton Senna, not some grotesque cash-in.Having read a few of Christoper Hilton's Senna-books, it was refreshing to get a new-ish view on his career. Some of the incidents were covered in pretty much the same way, the same praise was said about Ayrton and so on. The book opens with detailed and touching account of Senna's funeral, and then goes on to cover his racing career from karting to that weekend at Imola. It's def [...]

    3. The first chapter is emotionally hard-hitting. What follows is a run through of Senna's career, pausing only on key events and highlighting the controversies and rivalries that he is best remembered for.The author considers the accident objectively and looks also at how that affected the sport afterwards. Not simply in the big picture sense but looking at specific examples from the remainder of the 1994 season.While Senna is often referred to in reverential tones (as he perhaps deserves) this is [...]

    4. Great book - a short sharp tale of his life. Not on my to-read list for this year, but a must read for 2014.Good bit: Mr Williams does not treat the reader as a fool. He is more than a story-teller; he commentates on the events.Bad bit: My memory of events

    5. intelligent examination of what makes a legendSubtle and insightful, this skilfully written book covers the making of Senna's glory years and the aftermath of his fatal crash. It helps the reader to appreciate the human and sublime aspects of genius.

    6. A really great book if you're into the classic formula 1, beautifully written and puts in perspective the life of one of the bests drivers that F1 ever had. Very recomended.

    7. This is for the Formula 1 fan of 20 to 25 years back, specially those who admired Senna. It's an engrossing read, which culminates on the accident that took Senna's life but it is not exclusively about it. It wasn't easy for me, who have always been unconditionally a Senna supporter, to read something that acknowledges that he was not only determined, but often overly aggressive and single minded about victory. Still, the book seems to do justice to his talent behind the wheel.

    8. The title tells it all. A death that no one thought could happen. He we too good to die in a race car, but shit happens. His death had wide reaching implications. The ultimate racer.

    9. The second best book on Senna I have read after Tom Rubython's The Life of Senna. Not as detailed, as it is far smaller, and goes very quickly through his life. The most detail seems to be focused on the trial after Senna's death, but seeing as the title is The Death of Ayrton Senna, that is to be expected.

    10. Not exactly what I expected or what the title would suggest; fully 75% of the book is about the life and racing career of Senna, as opposed to his fatal accident.I picked this up hoping to gain a better understanding of just what happened at Tamburello 18 years ago. I'm not sure I got what I was looking for, but I did get an engaging read about an amazing driver. I'll take that.

    11. I wasn't a great fan of Senna (shock horror!) of course when he died I felt the sport had lost a vital element. If you enjoy F1, you'll probably like this book. It is a very well written account of his career and F1 overall. I don't know if it would be of interest as a general biographyI really enjoyed reading it and Richard Williams did a great job of handling this emotive subject.

    12. Um tributo adequado a um homem que dava sempre 110%.O culto de Senna, no Brasil e no mundo, dentro e fora da pista era absolutamente incrível.
