Eddie Irvine: The Luck of the Irish, by Adam Cooper. PSL, £9.99.
This might not be the official Eddie Irvine book but, as Adam Cooper says in the acknowledgments, it was “never intended to be Eddie Irvine’s own version of events because his memories of the early days are particularly vague!” Cooper is the man for the job, because there is no other journalist who knows more about Irvine’s career.
Having covered many of Irvine’s races, right through his career, the detail is immense, particularly on the years spent in Japan. Of course the book also examines his rise in Formula One, culminating in his drive for Ferrari. With plenty of interesting photos to complement the story, this book is excellent value for money. DS
