THE NO. 1 BESTSELLER
Nigel Mansell is one of motor racing's all-time greats. An ordinary bloke who took on the best and most ruthless drivers in the world's most glamorous sport and won; the epitome of speed, daring and sheer bloody determination.
His refusal to be beaten endeared him to millions, but few inside the sport or outside it have fully understood what motivates him in his quest to be number one. Here, for the first time Nigel reveals the secrets of his driving technique, his hunger for racing and the psychological approach that helped him outwit legends like Niki Lauda, Nelson Piquet, Alain Prost and Ayrton Senna.
This new edition of his bestselling autobiography is an absorbing account of one man's rollercoaster ride to the top.
"The pick of the Formula 1 books; meticulously researched and cleverly written."
"It's a tight, tautly written and well ordered tome… Mansell pulls no punches and makes no excuses for being the way he is."
AUTOCAR & MOTOR
"The book paints a vivid picture of his long rise to the top."

I always like Nigels determination so I'm biased to enjoying this book very much. The details and stories of our Nige against the establishment reinforce the lengths he went to in order to succeed. It was a long and difficult battle, certainly not for the feignt hearted. Driving with considerable injuries would not be allowed today but he did so and triumphed.
Conquering F1 then the ovals of America is a feat few can match. There is good reason why people within F1 rate Nigel in the all time 10 ten. He was a great sportsman, lifting the British crowds at Silverstone and genuinely rising to the occasion to produce one of the most memorable finishes in his Williams. F1 now sorely misses personalities such as Mansell. At a time when cars where hugely physical to drive and racing in perhaps the greatest era he showed us all that determination and a hell of a lot of hard work can get you to the top. I have heard that there are fewer Formula 1 champions than Presidents of the United States. Truly an exclusive club. Truly a driving legend. And you don't see moustaches like that anymore.
