Nicki is not only a driver but an automotive genius and a trained multi-engine aircraft Pilot that runs his own airlines.
Nicki was severely burned in a crash that was one of the worst I had witnessed to that date.The effect on him was not only physical but mental and anyone else but Nicki would more than likely never have driven again and would have become a recluse and never be seen in public again.His face and head were so badly burned that he lost most of one ear and when he was first out of hospital it was hard to look at him he was that badly burned he still had bandages on his head and was forcing his drivers helmet down over these so he could drive.It was a display of raw courage and grit that I wil never forget.
This book explains it all as Niki lets you into his head so to speak and gives you an unpresidented view of Formula 1 racing from the drivers point of view,warts and all. He holds back nothing as he explains his earlier years growing up and shows you how a great driver is born as they say.The one thing that will move you as you read his account of his life after the accident is the courage it takes for these drivers to strap themselves into a Formula 1 car and face the possibility of injury or death in this most dangerous sport in the world.Niki lets you experiance this nerve wracking world like never before in this wonderful book.I highly recommend it and am so glad that I could find another copy.-Floyd Smith
