PADDOCK to PODIUM from Chaters Books atbooks@chaters.co.uk

Foreword by Sir Jackie Stewart
Here are 2 typical reviews.

Self-published books have a certain look and feel - and some seem to surface through vanity rather than because there is a worthwhile tale to tell. This is not of that ilk. First-hand accounts of life with such as Brabham and Tyrrell paint a vivid account of the period, but its the tales of road trips between continental races - living on prize money and cooking meals on a small stove at the roadside - that give this its charm. Rutherford also pays tribute to the quality of Belgian chips as much a fact of life in 1967, apparently, as it is now.
Motorsport – Simon Arron.

What particularly distinguishes this book from many others is that it has been written by someone who was there, in the thick of things, in his own words and supplemented with his own photographs. Max does not mince his words and has some fairly critical comments to make about certain individuals while clearly having a high regard for others. Anyone with an interest in international F1, F2 and F3 racing as it was in the 1960s should acquire this book and will not be disappointed.
British Racing Drivers Club—Ian Titchmarsh
