It's a biog of John Barnard, written by Nick Skeens, a bloke who knows about engineering design more than F1.
I started to read the book on Christmas Day and I'm half way through. The writing style is fine for me, but there are so many quotes and facts in the book that I have to stop and reflect for a while. The data intensity is black hole degree if you follow up the citations.
I'm up to the moment when Barnard is signing to Ferrari as a designer. That's the first half of the book: after Barnard grows up in an engineering family, finds a job at Lola and eventually turns up at Project Four to sort out McLaren.
Barnard tells his story. The voices of Ron Dennis, Teddy Mayer and Tyler Alexander are also heard. The first half of the book tells some interesting stories about McLaren.
