Peter Falk joined Porsche in 1959 and his rise within the com­pany was me­te­oric. He was in charge of the tac­ti­cal and tech­ni­cal lead­er­ship of the fac­tory’s Rennsport team by the mid-1960s, and was race di­rec­tor by 1981. The sto­ries and anec­dotes come pour­ing out in his con­ver­sa­tions with au­thor Wil­fried Müller in this heavy­weight hard­back’s 408 pages. It is packed with 341 colour and 174 black and white pho­to­graphs, many from Falk’s pri­vate col­lec­tion. It is very early in the year to be think­ing about a book of the year, but this re­ally is a se­ri­ous con­tender.
