Book Description

27 Nov 2008

An iconic visual celebration of Lewis Hamilton’s historic Formula One World Championship winning season, including the story of his life to date and exclusive new words and pictures from a dramatic year. Welcome to the world of Britain’s hottest sports celebrity, as told by Lewis himself.

Lewis Hamilton: Formula One World Drivers’ Champion. It is hard to believe that Lewis, at 23, has only just completed his second year of Formula One and has already joined the pantheon of select great British sporting legends.

My Story – his incredible first-person account of his life, from karting champion and rookie boy-racer to Formula One driver for one of the biggest and most prestigious grand prix racing teams – has now been fully updated and lavishly repackaged in an illustrated format, with new colour photographs and stories from the 2008 season.

From the perfect start in Melbourne, through the controversy in Montreal and Spa, to the memorable victories of Silverstone and Shanghai, and finally the unbelievable stomach-churning climax in Sao Paolo and the unprecedented celebrations that followed – it’s all here, hot off the press just four weeks on from his record-breaking title victory, and in Lewis’s own words.

5.0 out of 5 stars A stunner 5 Dec 2008
By Scottish Footie VINE VOICE
A beautiful book. All of the photos, especially covering this year, really bring it to life. I enjoyed his autobiography when it came out last year, and this book with the additional pictures and story of the season is something that really captures his rise to champion.

For the fans, a must have. It's the original Lewis Hamilton book about his life, already released, with the update of the last races of Formula One World Championship 2008 and his win in it.
Lots of info about Lewis and great photos also, now with his view about the biggest deed in his career - Formula One World Campion!

5.0 out of 5 stars Lewis's New Volume 1 Feb 2009
What a beautiful and inspiring book, full of the most gorgeous pictures. The way Lewis talks about what his brother means to him and how he was inspired by him is eye-wateringly emotional. His description of the final race in Brazil was also exhilarating stuff! Lewis is such an iconic superstar, I would buy anything he put his name to, but I thoroughly enjoyed this book and will treasure it forever.
