A Massive Disappointment I purchased this book with great anticipation; as a new convert to motorcycle road racing, I was eager to learn as much as possible about the lives and careers of some of history's most daring athletes, including the great Giacomo Agostini, who ruled the European Grand Prix circuits in the 1960s and 1970s aboard the fearsome MV Agusta bikes.

His precocious talent and the courage and flair he demonstrated as a rider throughout his long career marked him out from all his contemporaries. Yet, until now, no full-length study of his spectacular career has been published in English.
