© Jackie Stewart; (P)2007 Headline Audiobooks
Sir Jackie covers his glory years in F1 in some detail including his struggle to get driver safety recognised by the sport, but the book is much more than that. Sir Jackie reads his story as one who has made a great success of his life despite some deficiencies in his earlier years. I would recommend the book to any person whether a fan of F1 or not, his anecdotal stories of meetings with the Queen and other celebs is well worth a listen.
"Winning is not enough"
I was so excited to get this audio book. I was so looking forward to hearing Jackie read his book. I was equally disappointed that this was the abridged version. I have the book so I guess I'll have to solder on to fill in all of the details. I asked for a return when I found out it was the shortened version.
Hearing in Jackie's own words what is was like for him to race.
He is very relaxed. Very natural in the way he speaks.
Only if it's read completely through.
Very good idea.
"Jackie Stewart's Biography - self narrated!"
This is better than the print version because Jackie Stewart reads it himself.
I don't know how to compare his story to anyone else - he is such a unique individual.
This is the first time I've heard Jackie Stewart read his book.
Yes, when he told the story of being tested for dyslexia at 41 and being relieved of the feeling that he had been stupid all of his life up to that point. I knew that he was told in school as a boy that he was stupid - I didn't realize the feeling followed him into adulthood.
The story is incredible and his accent is very enjoyable.
