Cool design, Cool topic 11 janvier 2002
Par Herb - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This is book full of cool pictures of cool cars. I really like these early roadsters, so I buy everything I can about them. I have to agree with the other review, though, the writing in this really is bad. There are so many cool pictures, though, that they make up for the writing. If you like roadsters and already know a good deal about them, buy the book. If you are a first timer looking for an introduction to the history, this one probably isn't for you.

Kurtis - the Indy Legend 15 juin 2008
Par Gene Herman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
A beautifully manufactured book chronicling the career of a unique, self taught, instinctive race car designer and builder. Frank Kurtis' creations have been long time favorites of mine, and this book very thoroughly recounts the production history of his distinctive automobiles. It also provides insight into the resourcefulness that kept his family and business afloat during harder times. Highly recommended.

A great book with lots of insight into Frank Kurtis. Great photos to go along with the stories. A must have for any racing enthusiast.

Don't waste your time! 17 décembre 2001
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Too bad about this book....Great topic, some good pics, but the author just ran the subject into the ground. I don't think he could connect two thoughts if his life depended on it, so to make up for it, he simply spilled out every mundane detail he could dig out about Frank Kurtis and/or his cars. There is a lot of good primary stuff here, but the author did a lousy job of historiography in distilling it into a concise, engaging story.
The pictures COULD have been awesome, but they are not. Many look like they were photocopies or bad digitals that were reproduced. I am surprised the publisher even considered them...in any case, it contributed to the overall fact that the book is a pile. It really is too bad. This is a very cool period of racing and an interesting, albeit, not crucial, part of the history. The neatest thing about the book is the cover. It will look darn nice on your shelf if you end up with a copy. You will like the pictures, but don't try to decipher the author's ramblings. It will only turn you against Frank Kurtis and his very cool cars.
Much more then expected 18 janvier 2015

A detailed recounting of the Kurtis Kraft life cycle that manages to escape the pitfalls of other car constructor books, Both literate and accurate, it manages to tell the story of the cars, the man and the business but still be entertaining for almost anyone.
His multiple business failures especially seem understandable from this larger then life character that you come to like and care about, even though most of us will have bought the book because we just cared about his cars.
