Description

The full-length, in-depth and intimate autobiography from Jenson Button, one of Britain's greatest ever racing drivers.

Jenson Button is one of the finest racing drivers of his generation. His 17 years in Formula One have seen him experience everything the sport has to offer, from nursing duff cars round the track to winning world championships and everything in between. Here, Jenson tells his full story for the first time in his own honest, intelligent and eloquent style - from growing up as part of a motor-racing-mad family under the guidance of his father, John, to arriving at Williams as a fresh-faced 20-year-old to being written off as a playboy, distracted by the luxurious trappings of his lifestyle, and his fight back to the very pinnacle of his sport.

Jenson's world championship victory for the unsponsored and unfancied Brawn GP team is one of the most extraordinary against-the-odds sports stories of the century. Jenson's book lifts the lid on the gilded and often hidden world of Formula One. He reveals his relationships with some of the biggest names in the sport - Lewis Hamilton, Michael Schumacher and Fernando Alonso - as well some of the most colourful characters, such as Bernie Ecclestone, Ron Dennis, Frank Williams and serial winner Ross Brawn.

Above all he puts you right inside the cockpit, in the driving seat, travelling at over 200 miles per hour, battling the fear of death, showing you what happens when it goes wrong at high speed and allowing you to experience the euphoria of crossing the line first.

Absolutely Amazing<br />

I'm not a Jenson Button's fan. I bought this audiobook because I'm a F1 fan and I was expecting the best memories of a World Champion. Jenson, you transported me into every Gran Prix. I felt that I was there. Thanks for writing this piece of art.
Congratulations!

Great book with a lot of stories!

Great book! It is an excellent combination of a bio, F1 stories and details of F1 drivers don’t come out very often.

Great Listen<br />

I followed JB from the start of his F1 career so the book was a nice recollection of some brilliant and also sad times. l just wish JB would have narrated it himself.

A must read for any F1 fan!!

What a great story about the life and career of JB. One of F1’s greats. Loads of laughs and some tears as well. Only fault is the amount t of chapters. I can see why the went that route. Each chapter is a part of time or story with in the story.

I know JB will never see this but thank you for being a awesome driver and ambassador to F1.

Excellent

A fantastic and candid autobiography by one of the best and classiest F1 Champions. JB's story includes his childhood, introduction to racing and path to F1, his racecraft and the technical side of racing, the teams and teammates he raced with each season, the close relationship he had with his father, and much more. A must-read for all race fans.
