A nice summing up of an era
July 16, 2018
Truly, a wonderfully written, almost poetic, look back at the Ferrari-Ford wars of the ‘60s. While the writing is flawless, the same can’t be said for the research . All the major players (make that suits) are mentioned. Three names are notably missing, all engineers: Klaus Arning, Ed Hull and Chuck Carrig. Klaus Arning was largely responsible for the design of the suspension on the Ford GT40 (and Cobra II, and Foyt’s Coyote Indy cars). Ed Hull was the engineer who designed the Ford J-Car which morphed into the Ford Mark IV that won the 1967 Le Mans race. Chuck Carrig was the computer program whiz responsible for design and development of Detroit’s first computer program to calculate suspension geometry, which greatly assisted Klaus Arning in the design of his unique anti-squat/anti-dive suspension of the GT40, in what was a rush job to make the 1964 Le Mans endurance race. The use of a computer as a part of chassis design is mentioned on page 89 (but without crediting the engineers behind the programing).
The expression “Go Like Hell” that the author has chosen for the title of this book, while not copyrighted and very much part of the public domain, is used several times in my novel “The Ragged Edge” (published in 1999). The first time I heard it was while listening in to the cockpit chatter of a Chicago-LA flight I happened to be on. The plane had just cleared Chicago airspace and I heard the captain say, in response to the control tower, “time to ‘Go like hell.'” I liked the phrase so much I used it to described the impatience of race driver John Wagner, the protagonist of my novel. He loathed standing still and needed to always “go like hell,” whether on the track or, at, the end of book, en route to Chicago, to win back his ex-girlfriend, who had walked out on him. The plane he’s on over L.A. seems to hover in the sky, making Wagner uneasy. “Go like hell” he says under his breath. When he feels the jet thrust come on, forcing him back into his passenger seat, he feels better. — author Richard Nisley.

Boy Did I Learn a LOT Reading this Awesome Book!
August 7, 2018
I’m a huge auto racing fan. I’ll get that out right away. However, it takes an excellent and accomplished writer to be able to bring excitement to the reader, while at the same time, relating non-fiction that is both relevant and factual. A.J. Baime has done just that! Awesome to learn so much about both Enzo Ferrari and Henry Ford II in the same book. My gosh, John Surtees, John Miles, and Carroll Shelby are all new heroes of mine!! Get this straight, if you like sports cars, intrigue and action, and exciting reading that relates historical fact in a very readable fashion, you’ll love this book!
BIG DISAPPOINTMENT !!

This review is based on the Kindle edition, not that it makes any difference…
First, there are NO PHOTOS of any kind in this book! That within itself is outrageous. I am sure there are readers who don’t know the difference between Formula One class, GT class, and Prototype class race cars. Some of the most famous cars in all three classes are mentioned in this book, but no photos. Some of these cars. arguably, were the most beautiful of their type ever produced, but no photos!
Second, some of the most legendary and famous drivers are mentioned in this book, but not a single photo of anyone!!
Third, 35% of this book is taken up by the “footnotes, bibliography, index, and acknowledgements” at the end of the book.
Finally, this book ends abruptly with the Fords’ victory at Le Mans even though the rivalry with Ferrari continued long after that race.
It was a big disappointment considering how much more the author could have put in the book to make it really come alive for the reader…

GO Like Hell
April 17, 2014
Great little book! The writer, who I’ve spoken with regarding something my mother spotted in the story; that being a certain man had come from Aston Martin – where my mother was John Wyer’s secretary from 1949-56 – this man didn’t do any of the things he claimed. My mum knew JW very well, and the likes of many of these drivers…. She took care of this guy named Shelby when he arrived at Aston’s in 1954, and my dad took care of the DB3S that Carroll drove in both local UK events and LeMans 54. Never being a FORD fan, the GT40 was only a Ford in name because they paid the bill… and supplied the Engine. These first cars were all designed and built in England. What they did was great, the amount of $ spend was million times more than “great”, whereas the politics and Board of Directors was typical Ford MoCo nonsense…. Phil Hill was booted from team, only to be a HUGE thorn in Henry II side when Phil showed up at LeMans in Jim Halls Chaparrel! It’s a good read, and if you’re from my era you’ll know these drivers names… I knew many of them, some came to lunch on off-Sundays like Ritchie. Now they are all gone… I remember when my dad passed away 5+ yrs ago, Shelby called mum, mum said “I have no one to talk to now” Carroll said, “you can talk to me!” And they talked regularly…. almost til the day he went. Great men, great cars, great racing!
If you raced….even if you never raced….

If you raced cars and motorcycles as I did, this book will take you back to a place that is an experience that takes everything you have, and gives you more than you will ever know. If you have not raced this book will give you some understanding of what it means to race at the highest level; both the immense skill and courage of the “pilots” while racing, and the hours and hours of dedication and effort by teams of amazingly talented people. Then if you fold in the larger than life personalities on a collision course in these Ford versus Ferrari wars it makes for a great story.
