The only complaint is that the book ends before the World Championship final rounds. As it was such a nail biting event until Stage 4 of the RAC, the final round, Colin's insight on that is sorely missing.
If you want to know why he is the best read this book.
It is well writen and very easy book to pick up and very hard to put down kind of book. It has a great balance of hummer and stright talking from the Scotsman about how hard a life is in the sport especial when it gose badley wrong in the car. He talks about before he got his break in to the big time and onto the world rally stage and world champinship year. And why he left that team that give him that big break? and why had gone to Ford?.
Both of his parants have added there own thought of having a son that has acheved such sucess at such a young age. The book gose into the help and expectations of his father had to make it more in the sport than he had done in his life. Colin talks quite openly on how much his father has helped him and how he helps him today all over the world.
the book is great and even if you are not a WRC fan it is still a great book to reed.
of legendery Colin McRae's life. explaining
about his childhood right through to half way through the 2001 season. A great buy.
