One of the most highly regarded names in racing, Sir Jackie Stewart is the winner of three F1 World Championships and 27 Grand Prix races, and is ranked in the top five drivers of all time. In the 1960s and 1970s, with his black cap, sideburns, and aviator shades, Stewart was an unmistakable icon and his life was one of excitement, tragedy, controversy, and stunning success. On retiring from the circuit, he went on to build an massive international business career. This is the compelling tale of a life spent battling against the odds and achieving world-wide recognition as an outstanding sportsman, a role model, and a highly accomplished businessman. Includes a specially produced DVD featuring rare and previously unseen footage, personal photographs, conversations with Stewart discussing key moments in his life, plus interviews with business leaders, friends, and family.

Jackie Stewart began his driving career in the early 1960s and competed in over ninety races before retirement. He was awarded an OBE in 1972 and a knighthood in 2001.From Publishers Weekly:
Part sports autobiography, part self-help book and part business guide, Stewart's tell-all is an honest and occasionally self-indulgent account of a life well lived. Stewart raced Formula One cars during the 1960s and '70s, when the sport was much more primitive and dangerous than today, and much of this mammoth book is devoted to his stubborn and successful efforts to implement safety reforms. Narrated with brutal honesty, the book captures the driver's struggle with dyslexia and his rise from working in a family-owned service garage to world-class clay-pigeon shooter and winner of three F1 world championships and 27 Grand Prix races. Upon retiring from the track, Stewart worked as a television announcer and businessman, as well as developed his own F1 racing team. His dry Scottish character shines through here, and his recall of specific races as if they happened last week is impressive. Unfortunately, Stewart occasionally gets caught up in his own pride, name-dropping obsessively, and some content (such as an entire chapter about the dogs he's owned) is unnecessary. Nevertheless, Stewart's story is, for the most part, well told. 14 pages of b&w and 8 pages of color photographs, plus a DVD.
