This is the best book ever written on motorsports Jan. 25 1999
By tomp@metrolink.net - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Lauda hits the sweet spot with this book. You are taken behind the scenes of Formula 1 from an insider's insider. You learn what it is like to drive for "The Old Man" Enzo Ferrari and Mclaren's Ron Dennis. What I found fascinating was how Lauda applied his cold non-emotional approach to racing to his life in general. In days where superstar athletes are out 3 months for a hamstring injury, Lauda was back racing after receiving "the last rights" from his near fatal crash at the Nurburgring. If you love racing, you will love this book.
it is entirely plausible a character like Lauda would find continued employment with "the sport Dec 1 2014
By notyourbusiness - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Niki Lauda spends most of this book insulting people he is giving back handed compliments to. He is an Austrian and as most know, an Austrian is a rich German much as a Swiss is a rich Austrian. It must have been hell to be around him, an admitted self-centered egotistical driver in the biggest sports franchise Europe can muster. Americans came up with a term to describe Niki and his ilk, Eurotrash. How Mercedes Benz chose him to be part of their present F1 operation is a testament to how F1 is a club. Since Niki and supremeo Bernie go way back, it is entirely plausible a character like Lauda would find continued employment with "the sport." Reading this book made me glad more than ever to be an American and free of the paradigm of "the old world."

I felt lucky to be able to get hold of a copy of this book. As a big Formula 1 fan for years, I enjoyed watching Niki drive at Monte Carlo and Spa. Now I understand where he came from and what he went through to get into the sport.

Niki is a bit....boring. Dec 23 2012
By Lucas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The first 40% of the book were interesting. High pace from laudas youth and family troubles to his first foray into racing and the Ferrari years. Then, somehow, after nurnburg crash it lost pace and direction.
