I expected this book to be a standard motor racing autobiography but it is much more than that. It arguably the best autobiography ever written by a racing driver and I have read most of them. In fact it is a highly absorbing read. And it is, for the most part, a very honest book.
Unusually, for this type of book, Sir Jackie wrote it himself without a ghost writer and it is all the better for that. And it is not only about motor racing it is about life in general with lots of self-help and business advice included. It is also quirky with a chapter on Sir Jackie's dogs that cannot fail to move anyone to tears. Anyone who buys this book - or gets it for Christmas will be totally delighted.
