4.0 out of 5 stars To be honest, I'm no fan in principle of sporting autobiographies..., 27 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Maria Costello: Queen of the Bikers (Kindle Edition)
...but I like this one. Normally they are vapid pieces of self promotion with few redeeming qualities; I'm a huge fan of Valentino Rossi, the GOAT, but his book was frankly not worth what I paid for it! It's true that people knock Maria for not being a female John McGuinness, and a number of other perceived 'crimes', not least her tireless self promotion, which as she herself says in the book is the only thing that brings her the sponsorship that allows her to race!

I also get the distinct impression, since this book doesn't sugar coat anything (although it is all presented from her subjective PoV as you'd expect) that like all driven people, she can be a complete PITA to live with and/or work with sometimes. But still, a good, interesting and credible life story well told!
