Review:

Road and Track, May 2007

“Dr. Stephen Olvey, along with Dr. Terry Trammel saved Alex Zanardi’s life at the Lausitzring in 2001 and the gripping account at the start of Rapid Response is reason enough to buy this book.”

“A fascinating insight into motorsport safety.”



Speedtv.com, November 2006

“Before you even open Rapid Response I defy you to put it down ... Olvey is a gifted writer, but he doesn’t take himself too seriously ... Rapid Response gets my highest rating...5 out of 5 lug nuts.”



Saturday Star (CAN), Dec. 9, 2006

“The coming year’s best-seller in motorsports books is bound to be Rapid Response.”
