Review

'Forget Senna and Schuey. Tommy Byrne was the best of them all.' -- Eddie Jordan `One of the most extraordinary sporting autobiographies you are likely to come across.' -- Andrew Baker, Daily Telegraph 'It's told in a breathless, raw style, and had me astonished and appalled in equal measure.' -- Bookseller 'The most exciting petrol-head release of this year. A high octane guilty pleasure.' -- Bookseller 'Motor racing is a great sport for 'what ifs' and 'if onlys,' and Byrne must have had many a rueful glance back. But this rip-roaring autobiography rarely indulges in self-pity. There isn't time. In between the racing there are girls, guns, billionaires, fights, parties and orgies. It would be a tremendous book with the sport left out - and there aren't many sporting books of which you can say that.' -- Andrew Baker, Daily Telegraph 'For all the rollicking yarns, this is a tale of talent wasted, but in spite (or perhaps because) of that, it is far more honest - and funny - than the anodyne autobiographies of many more successful drivers.' -- Simon Redfern, Independent on Sunday `A riveting read.' -- Financial Times `I'd be amazed if you didn't enjoy this book.' -- F1 Fanatic `It's a remarkable, colourful, at times scarcely believable tale which unravels at a breakneck pace.' -- F1 Fanatic `...I challenge you to put it down. It might just be the greatest book you've never read.' -- Simon Arron, Daily Telegraph `Quite simply the best motor racing book I've ever read.' -- 2009 Irish Motorsport Annual `You won't be able to put it down.' -- Times `One of the best racing books you'll read this decade.' -- AUTOSPORT `An essential read ... brilliantly told.' -- Observer `Witty and shocking ... a must for anyone who has the constitution to handle it.' -- Motor Sport Magazine `Incredibly entertaining.' -- Ireland AM `A real pleasure and provides massive insight into what makes racers do what they do.' -- International Herald Tribune `Absolutely brilliant.' -- RTE
