The Unfair Advantage, Donohue Book

Just did some rereading of the late Mark Donohue's book The Unfair Advantage.
I highly recommend it for it's background and history before professional racing became corporate. Specifically, his discussion of developing the Porsche RS, RSR IROC, and of course the 917/10-30 CanAM TURBO cars. Gives great behind the scenes look at Porsche engineering, development processes, and politics at the time the 930 was also developed and released. I read it that Donohue was responsible for the unique 930 trailing arm geometry and outsized rear tires in general. Nice pictures
Amazon and ebay have listings however there must be some demand as prices are high.
