Book Description

Aug. 26 2003
Since 1994 Michael Schumacher has dominated Grand Prix, winning the FIA World championship in five of the last nine seasons. In 2001 / 2002 he broke almost every motor racing record and is now the most successful Formula One driver of all time.

Now, in the official Schumacher book, we discover for the very first time the real Michael Schumacher -- through extensive first person material, as well as a narrative by Sabine Kehm, a journalist, colleague and friend of Schumacher. Fantastic new photographs from renowned European photographer, Michel Comte, give us new insight into the man and his life. For the first time the private man who gives nothing away and the driver who takes no hostages relaxes and opens up. This book will be a real surprise to all fans of Formula One and anyone who's wondered just what goes on behind the superhero's mask.

We learn about Schumacher's past, the secrets of his extraordinary success, his family, his view of other drivers and the state of F1, his opinions on controversial races and drivers, and we are given an insider's view of Ferrari.

At last one of the truly great sporting heroes opens up in an intimate, fantastically photographed book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but could have been better March 16 2004
By Suzy
Format:Hardcover
Great book with a great insight into Schuey's life (also privat life), but for me it is too much of a picture book rather than a 'serious' biography of a racing driver. Maybe it's just me, but I would have preferred a more informative autobiography about how he has seen his racing career so far and certain situations. I dream of a Schuey autobiography in which he goes through all of his races, his entire career.
I hope we will get one in the future...

Book is great and in great shape. My son was just very disappointed that it was only 70 pages of text and the rest is photos. So he was unable to read this for his school report.
