After Max Verstappen won his first world title in 2021, the original Dutch publication of ‘Max’, released in 2016, needed an extensive update.
The English version - published by EVRO in February 2022 – offers new chapters, dozens of pictures capturing Max’ career plus additional insights from none other, than Formula 1 world champion Sir Jackie Stewart & renown reporters like Will Buxton (Drive to Survive), Peter Windsor (former manager to world champion Nigel Mansell) and Formula 1 book writer and expert David Tremayne.
‘MAX – The Dutch Master’ is available online at EVRO Publishing

“Beautifully written, beautifully put together.”
Peter Windsor

“Well-written and superbly researched, and packed with quotes from the great and the good in the top tier of racing.”

“The book’s at its best exploring Verstappen’s pre-F1 days, which account for about half of its pages.”
Motorsport News

“Hoogeboom excels when recapping the very early days for Verstappen, as Max criss-crossed Europe with his father Jos to dominate the karting scene.”

“This biography is well researched and written. It’s loaded with interviews from people close to him and his family. It makes an interesting telling of the Max story in the words of people who know him well. It’s also nicely broken up with period snaps.”
Auto Express

“Hoogeboom does a fine job in covering the key incidents, pivotal moments, and getting behind-the-scenes… For the Verstappen fan there is much to enjoy.”

“The fact that this book only starts to talk about Verstappen’s F1 career halfway through reflects Hoogeboom’s unexpected approach to the book… it was fascinating to read of the thriving Dutch and Belgian scene, starring characters like former F1 driver Huub Rothengatter, Kees van der Grint, Paul Lemmers and Frits van Amersfoort, who ran Max’s 2014 Formula 3 campaign… Hoogeboom writes with insight and style, and his obvious bias can be forgiven as being part of the massive feel-good effect Max has had on Dutch identity and self-esteem. The standard of translation from the original Dutch is perfect, and the book reads more fluently than several F1 biographies I’ve endured in recent years. The book is what we’ve come to expect from Evro — a robust, well-designed, and excellently illustrated hardback.”

“Documented with vividity.”
