Jensen is a great storyteller and is willing to tell it like it is. also great insight on what it feels like to be a F1 driver
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.
...the narrator made a lot of pronunciation mistakes in drivers' names. Not a major problem, but it does pull the listener out of the story as it jars somewhat. Could have been easily avoided with a bit of prior research.

On the whole, I really enjoy this insight into Button's life and career (so far). He gives a good amount of detail, without going too far, and for a longtime F1 fan it was good to hear more about what really goes on "behind-the-scenes".
Unfortunately, the narrator of this book clearly knows nothing about Formula 1 as he read everything far too literally, case in point saying "K.E.R.S" instead of "kers", and got the pronunciation of almost all the other drivers' names wrong, which for an F1 fan is very annoying to keep hearing them said wrong.
Surely they could have found a narrator who was also an F1 fan or spent 10 minutes with the guy explaining the pronunciations.
Even better, Button could have read it himself, which I think would have really added to the experience.
