What does it feel like to be a young sportsman on the world stage, weighed down by the burden of the expectation of others? What pressures are created when your raw talent excites such dreams that anything other than ultimate achievement will be regarded as failure? Jenson Button has been winning motor races since he was eight years old, yet even he was surprised to find himself racing in Formula One only weeks after his twentieth birthday. Thrust into the turbulent world of the ambitious BMW-Williams team as the rookie partner of world champion Michael Schumacher's promising brother Ralf, and already tagged by a hungry media as the next Ayrton Senna, he was going to sink without trace, or fight for his corner. "Jenson Button - My Life on the Formula One Rollercoaster" is a first-person account, not just of the British star's first season and the career which led him to such a dramatic opportunity, but also of the reasons why his succeeding year demanded a switch to the Benetton-Renault team and how he fared. It puts the reader right alongside Button, in the cockpit or on the pit wall, as a young David taking on the established Goliaths, in a razor-sharp sport which takes no prisoners.
