This book is dreadful. I get the impression the author wrote a book about Lewis Hamilton in 2008, didn't get around to finishing it but then as Hamilton won a second world title, decided to write a couple more chapters.
80% of this book takes us up to the end of the 2007 F1 season, including Lewis' upbringing & rise through the junior ranks- which you can & probably have read about already in the book that was released at the end of 2007 by Hamilton himself...

Lewis Hamilton, The Biography is full of factual errors & non-sense phrases that any F1 fan or even some,,one with a basic understanding of English would laugh at. For example, have you ever heard the phrase 'Comes out on top of the file' ? Or the part about Fernando Alonso being downgraded five places on the 'grade' - I think that's supposed to say Grid..
Also, the use of the term co-drivers to describe F1 teammates is inaccurate- why not just call them teammates? They're not sharing the same car after all

Anyone hoping for a blow by blow account of Hamilton's recent Championship win will be disappointed with this book- as will any F1 fan with anything more than a passing interest in the sport. However, if you like your (outdated) biographies to be more of the 'paint by numbers' variety, then feel free to go ahead & waste your money on this book

Quite frankly, I'm stunned it was ever published in the first place

Would recommend this book for anyone that loves F1 The first half I really enjoyed, reading about Lewis's life, & family, they are all inspiring, and hard working. As an F1 fan I have watched every race for the last few years, so the second half of the book, I already new the story. Having said that, I would love to see the story unfold on the big screen. I hope one day someone will make a film about the Hamilton's. They deserve every single second of success in their lives, as they are so committed, and never take any of it for granted.

Just finished reading this fascinating account of the rise and rise of Lewis Hamilton. Frank Worrall's book is well researched and full of brilliant anecdotes that give a real insight into Hamilton's character - and what has driven him to such success at such a young age. An inspiring read.

I LAUGHED ALONG WITH THE REST OF THEM WHEN I SAW FRANK WORRALL'S PREDICTION THAT LEWIS WOULD WIN BY JAPAN, BUT THE BOY'S NEAR ENOUGH DONE IT. WELL DONE FRANK FOR STICKING YOUR NECK OUT - I HAVE JUST READ YOUR BOOK ON LEWIS AND THINK IT IS TREMENDOUS, ESPECIALLY ENJOYED LEARNING ABOUT HIS BACKGROUND. HOW ABOUT A BOOK ON ALONSO NEXT?
PS FRANK, CAN YOU HAVE A LOOK INTO THE FUTURE AND TELL US WHERE ALONSO WILL BE RACING NEXT SEAOSN SO WE CAN GET A BET ON NOW. ALL CREDIT TO ALOSNO, THE RIVALRY BETWEEN THE TWO LADS HAS REALLY MADE THE SEASON EXCITING.

I was very impressed with the book in question; its general condition and the promptness in which it was received. An appropriate contribution towards the Christmas gift of a young motor-racing fan relative.
