"gloriously unguarded" -- Sarah Edworthy, Daily Telegraph
'...will enthral and delight Schumacher's fans... a book finished to exemplary standards: the Ferrari of consumer publishing." -- Barry Forshaw, Ottakars
'The first official book and one that will undoubtedly be lapped up by the legions of F1 fans. Beautifully produced.' -- The Bookseller
From the Publisher
In the 2004 season everyone feels they have seen a new side to Schumacher - a man that is vulnerable and a driver that is mounting the fight of his life for his 6th World Championship. Driving Force reveals the genuine nature of the man, as well as the extraordinary levels of determination, talent, accuracy, imagination and courage that it takes to drive a car as well as he does.
It's a much more revaling book than people will expect - describing how it feels to push risk to its furthest boundaries, as well as the team work, friendship and passion behind the scenes in the Ferrari camp.See all Product Description

Schumacher is continually branded a cheat, and a liar by a selection of people. Nothing could be further from the truth. When you finish the book, you come to realise that he is the most Misinterpreted man in Formula 1 history. The book remains impartial throughout, it's not all one sided, as Michael's bad times in F1 are all talked about in detail.
It is uquestionably the best book produced on Schumacher, and a must for all committed Michael Schumacher fans, like myself.
Michael comes across as a very down to earth guy, who loves his family. He talks enthusiastically about Ferrari and his relationships with various people in the team. My favourite part is his diary of his Suzuka weekend in 2000. You really get the feeling of what it must have been like. Mostly the book focuses on the Ferrari years but there are some good stories about his Bennetton career. I did notice that he doesn't say too much about his collisions with Hill and Villeneuve, but that has been written about many times anyway.
I've given 5 stars, but the book is a little short in word terms, and there are a few too many photos when Michael could have written some more. He and his assistant have written in a very entertaining way and kept me attentive all the way through. Overall this is a very good buy, and a must for all Schumi fans!

As other reviewers have noted, it's literally two thirds comprised of moody, introspective family portraits and the text is written in PR speak and offers no insight at all. Read morePublished on 23 Jun. 2013 by Justin
I should have read reviews first, clearly. This is just a bunch of photos with the odd page of text. Certainly not the biography I was hoping it would be.Published on 31 Aug. 2009 by Luckywales
