This review is from: It Is What It Is: The Autobiography (Paperback)
I have always been a fan of DC, he seemed a hard working honest driver and is an excellent commentator. I was pretty disappointed with his book though. I am sure that a career as a driver in a top flight team must be pretty bruising but I didn't like the way most of his comment on McLaren was so negative. There was no mention of any positive team stuff like comment about his mechanics etc and surprisingly little about any racing where he wasn't upset about his team mate . Alot of the book was DC's general comments on life, and the sad fact is a guy his age and in such a focused environment doesn't have much to say that's worth hearing. He also seems to have a bizarre fascination with toilet brushes! However DC is very honest about himself and in his world he seems quite isolated and vulnerable, perhaps he would have been happier with a career where you can trust your colleagues. Finally I would have liked to let my son read this but in my impression the book was peppered with unnecessary f words and some pretty odd comments about the size of DCs appendage etc. Perhaps he is overall a pretty insecure guy trying to prove himself?
