Publisher's Summary

Total Competition is the most compelling, comprehensive and revealing insight into what it takes to get to the top in Formula One that has ever been published.
Across four decades, Ross Brawn was one of the most innovative and successful technical directors and then team principals in Formula One. Leading Benetton, Ferrari, Honda, Brawn and Mercedes, he worked with drivers such as Michael Schumacher, Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton to make them world champions. In 2017, he was appointed F1's managing director, motor sports, by the sport's new owners, Liberty Media. Now, in this fascinating book written with Adam Parr (who was CEO and then chairman of Williams for five years), he looks back over his career and methods to assess how he did it and where occasionally he got things wrong.
Total Competition is a definitive portrait of modern motorsport. In the book, Brawn and Parr explore the unique pressures of Formula One, their battles with Bernie Ecclestone and the cut-throat world they inhabited, where coming second is never good enough. This book will appeal not only to the millions of Formula One fans who want to understand how Brawn operates; it will also provide many lessons in how to achieve your own business goals.

great insight

Was a great listen for those interested in F1 beyond the glam. Technical insight and strategic philosophy make it worth the time.

Not what was expected

This book seems like your listening to a long lecture on the topic of how to become a successful top level manager. Although it compared to F1 it doesn’t really have much to do with it.
Seems quite a lazily written book as it’s basically just transcripts from some recorded interviews. Some interesting topics tho

An in-depth look at a successful businessman.

As a long term f1 follower I found the approach topic fascinating. RB’s insight and candid discussion was interesting given his success and AP’s interview style and insightful questions and observations created depth. Thanks
