Fantastically chronicled auto-biography. Very good insight into the life of a racing driver and the working of F1.
Good read for any racing fan. ( )

OK, it's a book for fans, but that's me. If you're not into Formula 1 motor racing, maybe you'll be bored by the stats and all the detail about cars, teams and personalities you don't know. But, for anyone who has followed Mark's career and shared in the highs and lows, the glories and the MANY frustrations, this book is a necessary rounding out of understanding. Mark fills in the details of team dynamics in ways that confirms what most of us suspected all along. The hurdles over which he was required to jump often had little to do with motor racing itself.
Like most sports books, it's not high literature, but Mark with ghostwriter Stuart Sykes, does a good job of telling the story from many points of view and the pace is maintained right to the end. Thankfully, that's not the end of Mark!
By the way, this is the first time I have put a book on Library Thing that has been read by no-one else. I could smell the drying ink as I read it. ( )
