Publisher's Summary

Sir Jackie Stewart is a man of immense charisma and integrity and 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, role model, and highly accomplished and respected businessman.

a deeply Charming look, into a truly beautiful man

there are a lot of autobiographies kicking around about old racing drivers. Fortunately, this one stand so apart. Jackie Stewart is a genuinely beautiful human being, who has brought great richness to the qualities of his own Story by telling them himself. if only for his narration, I would recommend the audiobook over the written addition. But there's something else, in the timber of his old Scottish voice, you feel something of the Beauty and the pain of life. I could listen to this all day, and I just have.

Winning is not enough

What did you like best about Winning Is Not Enough? What did you like least?

I was so excited to get this audio book. I was so looking forward to hearing Jackie read his book. I was equally disappointed that this was the abridged version. I have the book so I guess I'll have to solder on to fill in all of the details. I asked for a return when I found out it was the shortened version.


What was one of the most memorable moments of Winning Is Not Enough?

Hearing in Jackie's own words what is was like for him to race.


What about Jackie Stewart’s performance did you like?

He is very relaxed. Very natural in the way he speaks.


Do you think Winning Is Not Enough needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Only if it's read completely through.


Any additional comments?

Very good idea.
