1.0 out of 5 stars Dull dull dull, 10 Mar. 2008
This review is from: It Is What It Is (Hardcover)
Bland, lacking insight and, to be frank, boring. I was really looking forward to this one, after 15 years at the pinnacle of one of the world's most glamorous sports you would imagine he would have one hell of a tale to tell - all I can think is that he is keeping the good stuff for the second edition after he's retired. For a motorsport fan this offers little insight into the cloistered world of F1 - at best it's a mildly interesting documentation of his rise through the ranks (and love of soup and cups of tea) but ultimately it fails to ignite any passion for the subject. Anyone wanting a really entertaining F1 read should check out Eddie Jordan's book - it's everything DC's book isn't. Sorry to be negative, as DC would say (with boring regularity) 'it is what it is'.
