Ciao, Stirling – Book Review

I suppose that I should confess that I was not a Moss fan in his racing days. Like most when offered a choice I took sides and I was a Mike Hawthorn supporter although I did always respect just how good Stirling Moss was as a driver. Later in life I met him and became a fan.

It makes a good read. There are lots of stories of life in the mews and on the road all told in an entertaining style. Some of the tales are known, but here we see them from another angle. There is also an insight into living in London in the late fifties and into the sixties that makes it something of a social commentary rather than just another motor sport biography.

I did wonder if the world needed another book on Moss, but it does deserve this one. I enjoyed it and it has earned its place on my bookshelf.

Progress on the Amazon Book Shop

It seems that changes on Amazon since I set up the original shop mean that I can no longer provide a single link to all of the books that I am selling there. I understand, I think, why they have done this and have no complaints.

What I will try to do is see if I can promote individual listings as I used to do with the eBay store. I’m not sure if that is possible and I have other things to do this afternoon so it can go on my job list for another day.

I have listed, or reactivated listings, for about 16 books today ranging from motoring through motorsports and field sports to railway history. More small steps…
