Publisher's Summary

Sir Jackie Stewart is a man of immense charisma and integrity and is one of the most highly regarded names in global sport: winner of three F1 World Championships, 27 Grands Prix, and ranked in the top five drivers of all time. On retiring from the circuit, he went on to build an equally impressive international business career. In the 1960s and into the 70s, with his black cap, sideburns, and aviator shades, Jackie Stewart was an unmistakable icon in a glorious era of style, glamour, and speed. On the track, his story is one of drama, excitement, tragedy, controversy, celebrity, danger, and massive success. Beyond the sport, his life is a compelling tale of battling against the odds and achieving world-wide recognition as an outstanding sportsman, role model, and highly accomplished and respected businessman.

    "Very Well Written"

    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"
    What did you like best about Winning Is Not Enough? What did you like least?

    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.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Winning Is Not Enough?

    Hearing in Jackie's own words what is was like for him to race.


    What about Jackie Stewart’s performance did you like?

    He is very relaxed. Very natural in the way he speaks.


    Do you think Winning Is Not Enough needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Only if it's read completely through.


    Any additional comments?

    Very good idea.

    "Jackie Stewart's Biography - self narrated!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Winning Is Not Enough to be better than the print version?

    This is better than the print version because Jackie Stewart reads it himself.


    What other book might you compare Winning Is Not Enough to and why?

    I don't know how to compare his story to anyone else - he is such a unique individual.


    Have you listened to any of Jackie Stewart’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is the first time I've heard Jackie Stewart read his book.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    The story is incredible and his accent is very enjoyable.
