A really enjoyable read. A straight up account of his life up to that point in time. Covers all the topics you'll be wanting to know about. Casey comes across really well. l admire him for his incredible ability on a bike but also for his grounded, respectful nature. It seems a shame that he stopped racing so young but the way he expains his descision to stop is another example of a strong character and a wise head on young shoulders rationalising his career and making time for the important things in life.

Clearly had immense talent from a young age. So much so, every local track organiser and parents of Casey's competitors disliked him, and wanted him banned. By christ can he ride a motorcycle though. Even now, 4 years retired, and he still tops the Malaysia 2017 MotoGP test. A good read - particularly impressive is when his parents sell up everything in Australia to move to Europe - a tremendously risky gamble. It paid off, and then some.

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

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.

Good writing and pacing. Personal account that takes you through Casey Stoner's life and career, from the first time he rode a motorcycle (at ten months old) up to his retirement. Great read for both motorcycle enthusiasts who enjoy some technical detail and the broader general public. The details are there but don't overwhelm the reader, who can carry on merrily ignoring the passing mentions of engine bits and bobs.

Casey was one of the best. Read his story and struggles. hope he rejoins motoGP. Would love to see him back on the duke against Marc and Jorge. Come on Casey...

Typical story of young kid going racing. Casey wasn't that old when he retired from bike racing which makes this book a little on the short side but the stats lovers will enjoy the end 'filling' of all his races and results.
