An unmissable read if you are even vaguely interested in Formula 1. Not like other autobiographies where a life is squashed into a book...this is the life of Jenson for every race of his Championship winning year. Worth a read to say the least. Have a day off work and enjoy it like I did. You won't regret it.

Pretty boring account of a brilliant season, no real behind the scenes drama.

I got this book for my teenage son after he had asked for it. He loved it. He has an avid interest in F1 and Jenson Button and this fulfilled his hunger for information on both.

Brilliant! Diaries of a season are too often bland accounts, but Jenson's story of his championship winning season is intimate, insightful and a fascinating 'time-capsule' account of what has turned out to be a historic one-off year for a small independent team, Brawn GP, prior to its buy-out by Mercedes.

The opening section, detailing Jenson's dismay at Honda's withdrawal and the prospect that he may never fulfill his Formula One dreams, is a real page-turner. You get a real sense of what he's like: driven, emotional, a dedicated athlete. The race-by-race chapters make you feel like part of Jenson's gang. He relates what he does off the track as well as in the car, and includes text messages from friends and family. I was amazed by how cool he is, even when the pressure turned up. With technical updates and strategy summaries for the petrolheads, this is a brilliant, meaty read and a great Christmas present for Formula One fans of all ages. Highly recommended.

I was some what sceptical that this would be a very rushed book cashing in on Jenson's success at winning the F1 Driver's Championship in 2009.

I was pleasantly surprised. It is almost a diary of an incredible year, but it gets well into the tensions and emotions of an amazing year for Brawn GP and JB. I would have liked a bit more detail on some of the updates that were bought to the car throughout the year, and probably fewer copies of the text messages Jenson received before and after each race, but this book captures the thoughts of Jenson, the team, Ross Brawn, the Bridgestone tyre people and many of Jenson's friends and supporters as they prepare and go through each race weekend, practice, qualifying & the race.

A lively tale of an amazing season. Makes you want to get onto the next race as quickly as possible.
