It has been distracting trying to figure out what Mr Bonetto meant to say. There are a number of typos in the book at well - when you keep catching incorrect dates, facts and figures in a book that is all about the dates, facts and figures, it seriously detracts from the overall experience.

From the first Ferrari 125 S in 1947 to the Ferrari 590 GTO of 2010, the automobiles of the Cavallino Rampante (prancing horse) have marked the history of motoring on the roadway as well as on the racetrack. The fascinating line; the inimitable red of the chassis, now become paradigm; the power and unmistakable sound of the V8 and V12 engines have made, and continue to make, the automobiles produced at Maranello, in the province of Modena, a veritable legend on the road as well as a symbol of Italian excellence. Cars of refined style, the work of illustrious planners and designers like Pininfarina, Bertone, and Vignale, Ferraris are dreams come true for lovers of four-wheeled vehicles, and veritable cult objects for appassionati and collectors around the world. Enzo Ferrari, the founder of the prestigious automobile company, said: 'The best Ferrari ever built is the next one'. It's a legend that continues to renew itself.

This book is over 250 pages and has photos on almost every page, usually large photos across both pages. The information seems accurate but the wording reads like it was translated by a machine. All throughout the book are bad sentences, like "All that was needed was to dose the engine's accelerator and great output." (Written about the 348 -- the book also lacks page numbers.) Even the chapter names, like "The 1980s: An Increasing Decade", are unusual at best. But the photography is all gorgeous. No natural settings -- just cars on dark grey backgrounds. (And it's all small white text on black.) Each model usually gets at least 4 pages, usually 6-10. Great to flip through and look at; not so much to actually try to read. The pictures are among the best I've ever seen in the almost 30 years I've been reading car books and mags. Worth every cent of the $18 I paid for it.

I purchased this book because I love Ferraris. Since I paid very little for the book, I don't consider it a waste of money. The text, whether written in English by the author or translated by someone else, is horrible. Very few sentences make any sense, and there are many historical errors. The selection of models covered is fairly good and includes the FF. Great pictures, forget the text.

This book of the history of road going Ferraris has the most beautiful collection of photographs that I have seen in recent years.

To the enthusiast, the words are a bit trite - but this is more than adequately offset by the pictures.

Strongly recommend this book to the "Tifosi".
