Book Description

28 May 2009

Whether skateboarding across the kitchen as a child,
or taking part in the world's most prestigious vintage road race, TV chef James Martin has never been one
to sit still. In this entertaining narrative he reveals
how his two passions – cooking and cars – have fuelled his hopes, dreams and successes and made him the household name he is today.

James talks with passion, energy and candid humour about his childhood, early ambitions, becoming a successful chef and wowing audiences with his foxtrot on Strictly Come Dancing. His story is punctuated with tales of remarkable cars, from his first toy Ferrari to his vintage Maserati, each one representing a personal milestone and bringing with it charming stories and amusing anecdotes. James' cars give him the perfect excuse to delve into his life, revealing frank and fascinating details - from racing through the fields on his father's tractor and teenage fumblings in the back seat, to hurtling round a track with James Bond actor, Daniel Craig.

With James' career reaching new heights, and his collection of classic cars continuing to grow, Driven tells how his two lifelong obsessions have shaped the life of this relentlessly ambitious man.

My partner is a big James Martin fan, food and car wise and has met the guy a few times. This book did not dissapoint and my partner is not the biggest reader unless he can really get into the subject.
