5.0 out of 5 stars A fascinating and revealing portrait., 11 Jan 2000
This review is from: Life in the Fast Lane: The Inside Story of the Ferrari Years (Hardcover)
I have just received "Life in the Fast Lane" and find it fascinating. I have circa 300 books on motor racing, a fair proportion of them are driver biographies/autobiographies. For a book to impress me, it must either give new insights/ information on a given subject or where it is a driver biography, it must really delve into the drivers personality, show what makes him/made him tick. Gerald Donaldson's books on Gilles Villeneuve and James Hunt did this. Eddie's book does this too. If you're interested in statistics, don't read it but if you want know about the contradiction that is Eddie Irvine the man, I cant recommend it highly enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best book about one of the best drivers - a must., 7 Jan 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Life in the Fast Lane: The Inside Story of the Ferrari Years (Hardcover)
Eddie Irvine-Life in the fast lane, is a great insight into the true personality of one of the most exciting drivers in Formula 1, both on and off the track. It portrays him at work and play, for the dedicated race fan, there are thoughtful pieces discussing his views on Schumacher, Ferrari and each of the circuit, and for the gossip-hunters out there, the section entitled 'Girls,girls,girls' will prove invaluable. His family and friens recount often strange and amusing tales about him, and this book is sure to bring a smile to the face of anyone and everyone who has the good fortune to read it. With a colour photo section, this book is a must for Eddie Irvine fans and admirers everywhere. Congratulations Eddie Irvine and Jane Nottage, this is great.

4.0 out of 5 stars A contradiction of a book! Not unlike Eddie!, 14 Jan 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Life in the Fast Lane: The Inside Story of the Ferrari Years (Hardcover)
I was dizzy by chapter 2 - this book does not flow in the usual manner of (auto)biographys, but then Eddie is not a usual person by a long shot!! Jumping from serious F1 related matters to "Girls, Girls, Girls" in a matter of sentences demonstrates how strange this guys life must really be. The optimistic F1 driver, mingled with effrots as a father-figure; a dash of the perfect boyfriend bounced around with being one of the lads; and all this topped off with an incredible fortune and a character that you cannot dislike no matter how hard you try!! Eddie Irvine is the equivalent of a straight banana, unusual, fascinating, aggravating, and very amusing and this book describes him perfectly. I had to finish it in a couple of days as the suspense was amazing; quite what for, I haven't found out yet - but I guess that's Eddie!

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellant read by an outstanding driver., 1 May 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Life in the Fast Lane: The Inside Story of the Ferrari Years (Hardcover)
I being a lover of Formula 1 racing and Eddie Irvine, knew that this book would be a must read. Unlike so many other book on various F1 drivers, I really seen a side to Eddie that I believe brings out his best qualities. The fact that his opinion was being told to me made me feel as though I could really know who he feels when other people such as the press continously put him down without knowing what is really going on inside his head and all around him. This book has helped to settle many rumours that have risen over the past few years since Eddie has become big in F1 racing. It shows the true side to probably the most publicised Formula 1 drivers to date.
