5.0 out of 5 stars Just what I wanted!, 1 Jun. 2014
I am really pleased with the design and quality of the spice rack. It arrived quickly and was easy to fix to the cupboard. It was never going to fit inside a cupboard, unless it was empty, so it is located adjacent to the hob in the kitchen. No more sorting through various jars and bottles. It takes herb and spice containers of different shapes and sizes, although it does not take the large drums of herbs e.g. Parsley. It is easy to see what the labels say and much more organised than they were before. A good purchase.

I couldn't put this book down and laughed so much people around me wondered what I was reading! If you want an entertaining and amusing account of how one guy did NOT make a success of his F1 career, then this is it. Perry McCarthy writes in a way which gains your support from the outset. He describes his aspirations and their outcomes with a witty and entertaining honesty. This is an account peppered with famous names and events from the world of F1, which gives an insight into the political machinations necessary to become an F1 driver - not least the need to raise cash!
McCarthy's style of writing is straightforward and conversational. He successfully pens pictures of the main characters who have figured in his career, the definitve moments in his career and, in addition, includes some colour photographs both from his own personal collection and motorsport collections.
The acknowledgements are worth reading (which isn't often the case)as well as the book because McCarthy's humour and sense of the ridiculous shines through.
As well as being a really good read, above all this book testifies to the grit and determination of a man who does not allow anything to deter him in the pursuit of his ambitions. One is left with the impression that despite the fact that he didn't make a great name in F1, this guy will always be in demand as an after-dinner speaker, witty commentator, stand-up comedian, or even occasionally - as a driver!! You won't regret reading this.
