About the Author

Jackie Stewart was born in Dumbarton. In the early 60s he dominated the British club and European F3 racing scenes and in 1965 he partnered Graham Hill in F1. At Monza that season he scored the first of his 27 Grand Prix victories. Teaming up with Ken Tyrrell in 1968 he went on to win three World Championships - 1969, '71 and '73. He retired from the circuit after competing in 99 F1 races. Since then he has built a hugely successful international business career. In 1997, Jackie entered the Stewart Grand Prix Racing team into F1, securing second place at Monaco in its fifth race and in September 99 a win at the Nurburgring. He was awarded an OBE in 1972 and a knighthood in 2001 and is actively involved in numerous charitable trusts.

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.
