Enzo Ferrari - whose name ranks with Henry Ford and Ettore Bugatti - died in his Italian home town on August 14th 1988. He was a giant of the twentieth century: the cars he created are known all over the world and his influence has been immense, yet throughout ninety years of life he remained an almost mythical character. Ferrari - the man who would drive a racing car but would not fly, or even use a lift - led a life full of contradictions. Undoubtedly, he was a genius and a man of vision, but he could be tyrannical, vindictive and unfeeling, or he could lead by example and be calm and kind. Italian journalist Gino Rancati, longtime friend and confidant of Enzo Ferrari, lifts the veils of secrecy and takes us into the complicated and colourful life of the man from Maranello. Often using Ferrari's own words, together with the recollections of associates, workers and drivers, Rancati manages to pull together seemingly discordant pieces and describe as an understandable whole the driving force, the politics and the human frailties that forged the destiny of the man whose name is immortalized by the world's most exciting cars.
