Review:

Each chapter is a short-story in itself, encompassing a particular period or aspect of Zora's life. The book is remarkably unbiased, covering Duntov's strengths and his weaknesses but expressing few opinions. It's smooth writing style and easy reading make it outstanding entertainment as well as an excellent work of biography. Even casual students of the history of the American automobile industry must have Zora Arkus-Duntov in their library. --Corvetteforum.com
