I'm a big Casey Stoner fan just so that's out in the open.
Pushing the Limits is pretty damn good. It's an incredibly fast book to read - I got through it over a few nights before bed - but it's somehow very informative in it's easy prose and succinct style. I learned a lot about the guy and the sport and how each affected the other.
As he tells his story from toddler to MotoGP champion you can see how his thoughts on this machine evolve over time. Think sausage: you might like the taste of it, but you don't necessarily want to see how it's made. I think for Casey, exposure to the making of MotoGP, the wheeling and dealing, the lies and half truths - the game if you will - didn't suit a guy who is of the "say what you do, and do what you say" persuasion.
One "small" aspect of this that sticks out to me are his thoughts on tires in the 2006 season - honestly I didn't know that the allocation could be so capricious. It backs up what Vale said about his tires in the last race, something that I sort of felt was an excuse, but that turns out was a definite issue - that the tires changed on, let us just say, whims. A guy who believes in honesty and following through with your word clearly would not be pleased in such a system.
He doesn't say too much about his teammates or other riders that he hasn't already said, but when he does elaborate, especially on Dani Pedrosa it's interesting. He mentions enough about his time at Ducati for his thoughts on the bike to be insightful though perhaps not definitive. Does he say why he could ride that bike to victory while others couldn't? Not outright but from the preceding chapters you learn that his whole career up to that point was spent on hand-me-down bikes with numerous issues that had to be ridden around - and winning on them.

An interesting read, Stoner is without a doubt one of the greatest riders of all time and I enjoyed reading how he came up in racing. I would have liked a little more detail about his experience in the premiere class though, the book chronicles his life from childhood to the present, but only the last couple of chapters were on his Moto GP career. All of his world championships are in the premiere class and I would have liked to read more detail about that part of his life. If your into racing, you'll definitely enjoy this book.

Excellent compilation, concise transparent audit trail throughout his extraordinary and remarkable career. Fascinating insights notably the Ducati years and the tyre war years (interesting reference to Valentlno and the infamous Valencia front end fold!). Worthy of note are the extraordinary lenghts and sacrifices taken by his parents making his career possible, and giving us, the bike fans the opportunity of witnessing a truly great champion.

As a big fan of Casey Stoner this was an excellent read, so well written, it is not just a list of his acheivements but the long road to get there, what a tough life before he hit the big time. Would you believe on his forst few days in England he was living with an aunt & uncle in my home town down in Sussex, I could've walked past him in the street!! A definite recommend for all Casey & Moto GP fans. We miss you on the track Casey

It exeeds my expectations.

I appreciate the efforts of the authors on sharing the life experience of Casey and how his family supports him.

Life is not easy and full of surprises for the champion. It is clearly seen that the family support plays a very important role in Casey's life.

Overall, the book is well structured and supported with some great real-life photoes.
