Worked for Goodyear 1973 season & found this book really told it as it was.
A good fly-on-the-wall history. Riveting

This book is packed with a plethora of fascinating stories and anecdotes from a man associated with the likes of Colin Chapman, Andretti, Mansell and Senna. Simply put It's a very personal appraisal of some of F1's biggest characters and refreshingly forthright.

I really enjoyed his comments on the people he had come across in F1 in particular his assessment of Nigel Mansell is a thinly-veiled assassination of the brummie and his well known character traits. Also some very interesting insights into Peterson and Fittipaldi - the former clearly one of Warr's favourites. And some excellent anecdotal material regarding his time with Ayrton Senna - in particularly the brazilian's propensity for financially wringing dry the teams he drove for.

Overall a wry, thoughtful series of observations from a true F1 insider and hence very worthwhile reading.

Some good bits in the book and some mediocre bits, a little bit of a disappointing read. Overall worth reading despite these comments

Pretty disappointed with this so called 'book'. To be honest it is not really much more than an extended 'Lunch with Simon Taylor' in Motor Sport. At approx 200 pages + some pics it is not exactly lengthy either.
It is actually a series of recollections about some of the characters Warr had worked with in F1, a handful lengthy (Chapman, 'Bernie' & Senna) others to varying degrees less so although at least he is honest in his views, especially about those he did not have a high regard for, including Mansell.
Simon Taylor probably fills in some of the more interesting 'Gems' but overall a disappointment for the money.
I rate it 3* in spite of the above because I found it a very absorbing read which I rattled of in more or less just one session because it really is a bit like an extended magazine article!

I couldn't get into the book and found the content less interesting than I'd expected it & wish it had been more intriguing.
