There's plenty in terms of Richards rise to fame, but I was actually hoping for more in terms of Richards life, past and present. However, the book does give a good insight into the mind of a very talented sportsman, and how he prepares for and attacks a World Rally, although this can sometime come across as being self-opinionated.
At the end of the day, the book is ideal reading for anyone mildly interested in WRC, well worth the price.
The book's conversational style is easy to engage with, and really does provide a very genuine sense of the real person behind the accolades.
Burns is doubtless one of the rare breed of intellectually gifted sportsmen, and his articulate descriptions of what it really feels like to tackle a World Championship stage on the ragged edge are compelling. 'Driving Ambition' is the most genuine and revealing sports biographies I have read.
It charts his rise from the early days in the 1990's, trying to secure drives to the day in Margam where he was crowned champ. BRILLIANT!
