Los Hermanos Rodr?guez - The Biography
Last Tuesday December, 12th, Carlos Jalife presented his comprehensive biography on the greatest drivers ever of Mexico, Ricardo and Pedro Rodr?guez.
It took the author 13 years to collect all information, interviews and data, for this fabulous book "Los Hermanos Rodr?guez", a large format of 34cm x 23cm containing 592 pages on high quality paper and more than 3000 pictures, and text in Spanish.
"This is like the baby of a mastodon, it takes an elephant two years to give birth at a baby and this one took 13 years, but it gives a big satisfaction" explained Jalife general secretary of the non-profit Scuderia Hermanos Rodr?guez A.C.
The press conference was chaired by Conchita Rodr?guez, sister of Ricardo and Pedro; Miguel ?ngel Quintana, president of the Scuderia Rodr?guez and famed singer/actress Patricia Manterola, also known as the 'Queen of the Races' in Mexico, since she has been Grand Marshal at many international events there.
Conchita Rodr?guez, who donated a lot of family pictures, said: " It evokes a lot of emotions to me, this book reflects their lives and brings back the memories that I still keep in my heart".
The biography with prologues by Jo Ram?rez, Adri?n Fern?ndez and Carlos Slim Domit of the Escuder?a Telmex is for sale at Sanborns www.sanborns.com.mx, and costs around 70 dollars.
The English version is due June 2007.
It is really worth waiting for it, this is the best book I saw in years!
