Like that book, Method in my Madness comes across as an honest, no holds barred assessment of his life since retiring. His dealing if the demons of life without racing, his drive to fill that gap, his distancing himself from a sport he was obsessed with although former colleagues questioned why.
A must for anyone (not just sports people) who have retired or come to a crossroads their life.
Wonderful reading, just sorry it took me until now to find it.
Would pick up another book to read if written by him....
