ITALIAN DESCRIPTION:
All'inizio degli anni Sessanta, Enzo Ferrari dominava la scena automobilistica europea con le sue sfavillanti auto sportive: un design rivoluzionario unito a un tachimetro che superava i duecentosettanta chilometri orari rendevano le sue macchine vera fantascienza su ruote. Ma i rischi che l'alta velocità comportava gli avevano fatto guadagnare il soprannome «l'Assassino», a causa dei piloti che persero la vita correndo per lui. Nel frattempo, il giovane e inesperto Henry Ford II, che aveva preso in mano le redini della compagnia di suo nonno, sapeva che doveva cambiare le sorti dell'impresa di famiglia: la gente non cercava più il comfort in un'auto ma la velocità, non la sicurezza ma l'estetica. Con l'aiuto del visionario Lee Iacocca e di un ex campione diventato costruttore, Carroll Shelby, Henry decise che l'innovazione della Ford sarebbe iniziata entrando nel mondo delle corse europee, partendo dalla prestigiosa, spaventosa, pericolosissima 24 Ore di Le Mans. La missione era tutt'altro che semplice: Ford doveva inventare e costruire una macchina in grado di battere l'indiscusso re rosso del circuito, e trovare un pilota tanto folle quanto audace che osasse accettare questa sfida. E Ken Miles era l'uomo giusto. A.J. Baime trasporta i lettori in un'era dorata, in un momento glorioso in cui la spietata rivalità tra Ford e Ferrari ha raggiunto l'apice, tra incidenti mortali, velocità vertiginose e prove al limite dell'impossibile dei due piloti che avrebbero portato le due case automobilistiche alla vittoria o alla rovina.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION:
The epic story also told in the film FORD VS. FERRARI: By the early 1960s, the Ford Motor Company, built to bring automobile transportation to the masses, was falling behind. Young Henry Ford II, who had taken the reins of his grandfather’s company with little business experience to speak of, knew he had to do something to shake things up. Baby boomers were taking to the road in droves, looking for speed not safety, style not comfort. Meanwhile, Enzo Ferrari, whose cars epitomized style, lorded it over the European racing scene. He crafted beautiful sports cars, "science fiction on wheels," but was also called "the Assassin" because so many drivers perished while racing them. "Go Like Hell" tells the remarkable story of how Henry Ford II, with the help of a young visionary named Lee Iacocca and a former racing champion turned engineer, Carroll Shelby, concocted a scheme to reinvent the Ford company. They would enter the high-stakes world of European car racing, where an adventurous few threw safety and sanity to the wind. They would design, build, and race a car that could beat Ferrari at his own game at the most prestigious and brutal race in the world, something no American car had ever done. "Go Like Hell" transports readers to a risk-filled, glorious time in this brilliant portrait of a rivalry between two industrialists, the cars they built, and the "pilots" who would drive them to victory, or doom.
