Don t buy this will spoil the view you have of Jackie Stewart Unfortunately I have given up on this book by Chapter 2 I have always had a high regard for Jackie Stewart for the work he has done to make motor racing safer However in this book he comes across as def important and oh I m great for my philanthropic work if I ve got that impression by chapter 2, I wonder what the rest will be like, unfortunately I am destined to not find out , very disappointed This book has it all unmissable one of the finest books I have ever read and in 60years I have read a number if you haven t bought or read this book then you are missing out as it has it all the whole of lifes ups ,downs A very feeling and caring work the truth shines through ,with deep heart felt emotion While I was reading the work I congratulated myself on this purchase a real pleasure to read and understand Everyone will learn from this and so they should its a wonderful story which will enlighten and humble all You will actually congratulate yourself for the purchase and feel that you finally have found truth, care, love and triumph in this extremely tumultuous life Well done Jackie Stewart there is no acclaim given that can be high enough Thank you for a truly wonderful experience of emotions.Mac It s a theme that runs right through the core of an autobiography of a man, Jackie Stewart, who was far than just a world champion.Autobiographies are fiendishly difficult things to get right and perhaps that s why, even in the ego fuelled world of professional sport, there are so few of them.This is an entirely different book From start to finish the voice of the book is unmistakably Stewart methodical and logical with a deep sense of conviction.The most striking portion of the book comes just a few pages in the second chapter Am I stupid , in which Stewart recounts his struggle with dyslexia and efforts to improve recognition of the condition in schools It s uncomfortable reading after hearing Max Mosley s recent ill advised attack on Stewart as a certifiable halfwit.The book gets into its stride in the middle section where Stewart recounts his racing career, focusing not just on his successes but also on his tireless pursuit of improved safety standards and the conflicts this created.There s so much packed in that 500 pages seems on the short side Even before he was a three times world champion he was an enormously successful shooter, and after being an F1 driver he was a sports commentator, business man, team boss of Paul Stewart Racing, then Stewart Grand Prix and president of the British Racing Drivers Club.Finishing the book it s hard to imagine how one could get a clearer impression of the man short of actually meeting him This is the whole story on Stewart driver and man, personal and professional It s a really excellent piece of work.The title sums it up Would Winning is not Enough work as a title for a book about Michael Schumacher Ayrton Senna Alain Prost Perhaps not But for Jackie Stewart it s the least that can be said of him. There are some very cynical reviews of this book but for me it was a terrific read which I completed very quickly If you are after a book which is 100% about motor racing then I would say that this book is not for you as Sir Jackie takes us through all the different aspects of his life before, during and after his career in Formula One.The points that the cynics are missing are as follows You get to learn about the author s mindset and his approach to life and tasks The name dropping did not come over that way to me, it was a case of him putting over how priviliged he has been over the years.It s a well written, easy to read and interesting book about a man from the days when you did not have to have bucket loads of money to get to the top level of motor racing He got there on talent, making good decisions as well as being in the right place at the right time. Jackie s thoughts on life are quite profound As I read the book, I often found myself thinking You re right, I wish I had thought of that at the time Not really a blow by blow account of the F1 career, of an overview of his life from clay pigeon shooting through motor racing to business and the people he met and conclusions he came to Good read and I got it second hand for next to nothing so I guess that would appeal to Jackie s Scottish sense of economy I got three quarters through it I had thought much of this man but his book has actually put me off him Self righteous, slaps himself on the back was my impression. Sir Jackie Stewart is a man of immense charisma and integrity and is one of the most highly regarded names in global sport winner of three F World Championships,Grands Prix, and ranked in the top five drivers of all time On retiring from the circuit, he went on to build an equally impressive international business career In the s and into the s, with his black cap, sideburns, and aviator shades, Jackie Stewart was an unmistakable icon in a glorious era of style, glamour, and speed On the track, his story is one of drama, excitement, tragedy, controversy, celebrity, danger, and massive success Beyond the sport, his life is a compelling tale of battling against the odds and achieving world wide recognition as an outstanding sportsman, role model, and highly accomplished and respected businessman
