Without an ensemble he is not that funny most of the time, rather, just a critic of human nature. Enjoyed parts, but he needs props, like the cast of his show to make his ideas funnier.

I really enjoyed the final episode dealing with the psychological motivations for deception based crimes.

New respect for Jenny Gow, Great to learn more about her pure motorsport passion. As for the racing, i loved learning about the roots. A great listen.

Torn between both points of view, judging one minute. understanding the next. Agendas were disappointing but overall a good story.

Just when I thought I had heard it all, this book gave me so much more. Despite my 30 years + of following Formula One passionately, I was amazed at the amount of stories and anecdotes I had never heard, so I highly recommend this book as a must for any truly passionate F1 fan. It is not about racing and results, rather, it is about the people, the history, and the business side of Formula One. Brilliant.

It would have been easy for Michael to brag and just list his exploits, but as a wise old man, he has chosen to offer gold nuggets of wisdom gained from experience, alongside his many achievements. A really enjoyable listen, especially with that iconic voice.

In stark contrast to the subject matter, I found myself constantly laughing at Jo's dark humour and one liners. Oh my goodness! All I could think of was Clive James; is she his daughter? Jo has a great reading voice, and this in particular brings her black humour to the fore. I am going to listen to this book again and again, even if just for the jokes. I expected a serious dissection of the many flawed cult figureheads who deluded the masses, and was pleasantly surprised at how brutally funny Jo has portrayed these religious nut cases, without missing out on the psychology behind their behaviour, however crudely she stated it. I want more...

For passionate fans of F1, i would say that 80% of this book was nothing new. Great naration despite none of the accents being remotely close to the real life characters. The big letdown was the complete lack of anything regarding childhood and personal life details. I loved it but did expect more.

Given the distance of time and WW2 playing their respective roles in burying the legend of Dick S, wonderful writer and narator Richard W leaves no stone unturned in this amazing story. Persistence paid off and though too many names, details and characters are mentioned that most readers will not be familiar with, a second listen will be a treat.

Lacks depth. Something is missing maybe structure or a sense of the big picture. Still a good read but compared to JYS or Damon Hills books it just lacks the magic.
