Review

‘Lewis will create the benchmark for a whole generation of drivers…He is already turning television viewers back on to motor racing’ Jackie Stewart

‘Lewis Hamilton is a phenomenon – nobody has come into the sport and done what he’s done’ Murray Walker

Few 22-year-olds have achieved enough to warrant 290 pages of reminiscence, but Hamilton is the exeption.' 'Hamilton is not only outstandingly gifted as a racing driver, he is genuinely articulate and charming.' The Daily Telegraph

Considering this is the official offering on Hamilton, I have to say I'm not very impressed. It's OK, but the laughably large amount of blank page around the text says it all. I nailed it in an evening and felt all the unwiser about our nation's newest sporting hero as a result.
A review in The Daily Telegraph last week of all the Hamilton books currently hitting the shelves pointed to 'The Full Story' by Mark Hughes being the best of the bunch. I've now read that as well and I don't know about the other books on offer, but I do know that The Telegraph was right about the official one, Mark Hughes' book is head and shoulders above that.

There were a litany of books released after Lewis Hamilton's championship win on 2008.

As his officially endorsed book, you would expect this to be the best, but it isn't.

It is poor, littered with mistakes, indicative of the way it was rushed out.

Give it a miss - it's not even worth a pound in the cheap book shops....

I don't understand why some are rating this book 1 star! I don't know exactly what you were expecting after all this is a 22 year old young man barely into adulthood, although understandably you would be forgiven for forgetting, his maturity belies his age. Evidently some haven't even read it at all but still feel entitled to review? Anyway I personally chose to buy the only book by the man himself (albeit ghostwritten) out of all 7 as I am thouroughly fascinated by his whole being and not just his racing. That curiosity is answered and to put it simply LEWIS IS HIS FATHER'S SON and he leaves you in no doubt at all (if ever there was any) that he is who he is in everyway because of his father, followed closely by his stepmum Linda and brother Nic. The only dissapointment I would say is the deliberate censorship of his real mum and her side of the family from the story, if you ask me that is where the juicy stuff is. So if you are looking for some warts and all story, you won't find it here but that should come as no surprise as he has shown that he is honed to perfection by the PR machine.
It is also nice to relive the joy and pain of this gone season with him so to speak, with the China nightmare poignantly standing out. That was gut wrenching for all that were rooting for him and he allows you to step on the other side, looking from the inside. A lot has been censored but as I said he's into his first year not a great stage to be spilling the beans and all and possibly not that many beans anyway. At best it is a very inspiring story of a young boy with a dream and a super solid family behind him and his dream (or their dream should I say). I shall be looking forward to the sequel, hopefully a tell-all memoir.

When I bought this book I must admit I wasn't sure if id like it or not with Lewis being so young but I must say I was pleasantly surprised. The book gives much insight into what Lewis was like as a child and what trials he had to face.
My only criticism is that he does repeat himself and refers back too much. Definitely a must read for Hamilton fans though.

8 of 11 people found the following review helpful By Mr. D. B. Lloyd on 1 Jan 2008
Format: Hardcover
I was extremely disappointed in this book. Thankfully it was bought as a gift.
There are at least 12 'I's on every full page. I'm sure he didn't write much of this himself, but I believe it shows the pointlessness of having a book written about your life when you're still in your 20s. No doubt that he's achieved a lot in his young life, but this is a typical 'celebrity book', and given the obesession with celebrities in the UK, there are those who will enjoy it, and good luck to them, but for me it was one of the worst books I have ever read.
