A fascinating look at the life of one of the most well known race car drivers of our time. A fabulous journey through F1 racing from 1963-1973, the teams, the drivers and the challenges of the time.

This is an amazing book and if you are at all interested in the life of Sir Jackie Stewart then i highly recommend this book.
Sir Jackie Stewart was Formula One world Champion 3 times in the late 60's and 70's. He was instrumental in getting many safety measures put in place for racers and this has slowed to an almost complete stop the yearly death toll that these drivers paid.
In his own words, and he tells it all, from his un-diagnosed dyslexia to his champion skeet shooting to F1.

This is an inspiring autobiography. Stewart overcame dyslexia to develop himself as a great racing driver and a safety reformer in the sport. Later he became a very successful businessman and founded a racing team. At ease with royalty, CEOs and everyday folk, his decency shines throughout this book.
