This thread looks like as good as any place to make notice that there is a delightful new book, Enrico Nardi, a fast life
, by Dino Brunori and Andrea Curami. A friend thought the book was "breezy," and the writing style is light. But that is good. All my questions weren't answered. But there is a lot of research behind this book. The authors do not pretend to solve this last mystery in our Alfa V12 thread, but instead carefully explain all of the available information. There are 350 photos, and about 200 pages. The photos are printed much better than most automotive books. It is published in separate Italian and English editions. It is 55€, which is good value.
John DeBoer is acknowledged as a valuable contributor to this book. He and book coauthor Andrea Curami have also contributed much to the AlfaBB forum.
There isn't that much recent Alfa content. There is little on the famous Nardi steering wheels, and that is ok. Dino has already written articles about their manufacture. But there is much on Enrico Nardi's early history with Scuderia Ferrari, and there is a fascinating section on Nardi's involvement with Mollino and Damonte on the Bisiluro.
