Top Customer Reviews
Gives you a real incite in to what it took for Maria to make it in a male dominated sport.
She pulls no punches to tell you what it was really like.
I also get the distinct impression, since this book doesn't sugar coat anything (although it is all presented from her subjective PoV as you'd expect) that like all driven people, she can be a complete PITA to live with and/or work with sometimes. But still, a good, interesting and credible life story well told!
She is an inspiration.
I hope this book encourages a lot more women to get involved in racing, even if it's car's!
No matter how hard Maria gets knocked down.
Whether through crashes, or the general mess of actually getting a competitive team together.
She just brushes herself down and gets on with it, no matter who tries to put her down.
As racing is like that there are idiots around.
Though there are lot more good people who selflessly provide support
Maria was awarded her MBE because she is an exemplary example for the sport and a great rolemodel.
So deservedly Maria gets the support of fans and people in the sport, that warrants her reputation.
Which she built up with years of hard graft.
Keep at it!
