The life and death of Britain’s First World Champion driver,
By Tony Bailey and Paul Skilleter Published by PJ Publishing 2008
Besides being Britain's first World Champion driver,
John Michael Hawthorn was one of its most talented
and colourful sportsmen ever. This large, truly comprehensive
book, as well as recording Hawthorn's racing career, goes
further than any previous publication in looking at his childhood,
family and friends and using the recollections of those who knew
and worked with him to provide a fully rounded portrait of the man.
Completing the work are more than 1,000 photos, paintings and
specially commissioned illustrations.
By any criteria, this is a book of the highest merit.
