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.More

Winning is not enough
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.
Hearing in Jackie's own words what is was like for him to race.
He is very relaxed. Very natural in the way he speaks.
Only if it's read completely through.
Very good idea.

Jackie Stewart's Biography - self narrated!
This is better than the print version because Jackie Stewart reads it himself.
I don't know how to compare his story to anyone else - he is such a unique individual.
This is the first time I've heard Jackie Stewart read his book.
Yes, when he told the story of being tested for dyslexia at 41 and being relieved of the feeling that he had been stupid all of his life up to that point. I knew that he was told in school as a boy that he was stupid - I didn't realize the feeling followed him into adulthood.
The story is incredible and his accent is very enjoyable.
