Interesting as far as it goes, and it's true to say that there are a few extremely honest insights into his businesses,and personality ... but very little detailed stuff about the actual cars he raced and built, and virtually nothing about how he developed them.
You should have this book on the shelf simply because the man did do so much (winning) and was such a key player.
But I for one, would look forward to a companion volume..."Gordon Spice, the cars, the driver, the opposition", topics which are only lightly sprinkled through this volume.
If you are into Motor Racing you'll love the stats, if you're into running a business you'll relate to the highs and lows, the risks, challenges, and the buzz.
If you love to be refreshed by straight talking and sick of this "PC" lark we're made to abide by then this is the book for you.
And if like me you used to work for Gordon in his Cash 'n' Carry then you'll know why it was such a great place to work (before it all went pear shaped by those in the city wanting the bucks).
Loved the book as could relate to the people, the places and humour.
"Life of Spice" is actually a really good story. It's about a chap called Gordon Spice and what has happened to him during his life as an entrepreneur and a racing driver.
What makes this book so readable is that Gordon Spice arrives at many situations during his career that we can all identify with: especially the lows! Maybe we haven't experienced the motoring and business successes, but the book goes a long way to make it feel as if we'd been there.
If you are interested in what makes people tick, then you will really enjoy this book.
