I liked this book. I liked the layout - how he described each race during the season in pretty good detail. And there was some inside information..,but not THAT much. If you have seen several Jenson Button interviews, then you probably get the impression (as I do) that he is a decent bloke, who loves F1 and who does not like to stir things up too much (at least publicly) BUT who seems to respect F1 fans. That is how this book comes across to me. He seems likeable, knowledgeable and talented...and a tad safe. I learned a fair bit..but not really that much. But I am quite the F1 fan, so there was probably not much he could have told me that I did not know without throwing some dirt around...which is not his style.
So, the book is a tad dry...but still interesting and enjoyable.

Great play by play of JB's championship year Nov. 27 2011

This book is the 2009 Formula One year seen through the eyes of Jenson Button leading up to his first World Championship. He tells the story in the first person format, giving you some insight into his inner feelings throughout the year. Although it isn't an edge of your seat exciting book it is an honest review of what must have been a very tense time in the life of one of today's top Formula One drivers.
Enjoyed the insight of this rare championship year June 5 2014

How all the pieces of an orphan F1 team with a new chassis, necessitating a change of engines, a team manager now owner and a smooth but as yet unsuccessful driver came together, like the alignment of planets. I was rooting for Rubens at the time, but while reading this book I came to appreciate Jensen's composure and achievement as the Brawn team advantage shifted in the second half of the season to Red Bull.

It's mostly Jenson Button talking about the races, nothing you haven't seen on TV. Like any racing driver, there are a LOT of excuses in this book as to why he didn't win this or that or why he didn't qualify better on the Saturdays.

There is some insight into the before and after the races and what he did with his family.
Good read Jan. 1 2014

A good insight into the journey of an F1 championship and an under dog team. An interesting story about Henson and the team.
Great book about the F1 2009 season Sept. 12 2015

You can really see that Jenson wrote this book himself. His normal enthusiasm shows through. A great read and very interesting about the 2009 F1 season.
