    Poorly edited and inaccurate - particularly the photo captions. True fans and anyone who cares for factual accuracy will be disappointed.Do not buy unless you want a mistake-filled and disorganized account of the Indy 500.Here are a few egregious examples:- In multiple places, the book incorrectly credits Al Unser, Jr. with four Indy 500 wins, when his father Al Unser, Sr. has the four wins to Jr.'s two.- The 1911 winning car is pictured inside the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum, but the caption incorrectly states the display is in the Children's Museum of Indianapolis.- A photo of the parade lap is represented to be from 2014, but clearly is from the late 1990s (Kenny Brack switched to CART following his 1999 win).- The 2006 finish with Sam Hornish, Jr. edging Marco Andretti is claimed to be the closest finish in the history of the race (a record still held by Unser, Jr. and Scott Goodyear from 1992).Recommend saving your money on this and instead getting a copy of the outstanding hardcover history: 100 Years, 500 Miles by the staff of the Indianapolis Star.
