Sir Jackie Stewart 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, a role model and a highly accomplished and respected businessman.

I was hoping for an inside look at one of my favorite racecar drivers but this book left me cold instead. There is no dispute with his driving career, his shooting sucess, or his work with Ford - but i lost a lot of respect for him as a person. He comes off as an arrogant name-dropper. From humble beginnings and hard work he makes a great start but as he gains money and powerful friends it is sad to see how very class-conscience he becomes. The plug for the Mayo Clinc that only the best in the world is good enough for his son and how everyone should ensure they get the best medical care.... Sorry Jackie, we just can not afford to fly to America once a year for two full days of tests and personal consults like you and your family. And we know you moved into rare circles but did you have to list every royal person in the world as you personal friend? I am sorry i read this. I liked my fantasy about JS more than the real person in this book.
