He perfect blend of author and subject? Probably. Gordon Kirby is renowned for letting his subject do the talking and then linking the quotes with facts and well-judged statements. That allows a driver of eloquence like Mario Andretti to inject his own style into Kirby’s content.
Thus the entertaining tales in A Driving Passion are often humorous,occasionally poignant and — given Andretti’s astonishing versatility —always authoritative. Some of the book’s wonderful pictures can be seen elsewhere in this magazine, but that is just a small sample. There are many more of similar quality and diversity. As a great work on an amazing driver, this deserves a place alongside Doug Nye’s .
