Jenson Button is one of the greatest racing drivers of his generation. His 17 years in Formula 1 have seen him experience everything from nursing underpowered cars around the track to winning World Championships and everything in between. Jenson's World Championship victory for the unsponsored and unfancied Brawn GP team is one of the most extraordinary against-the-odds sports stories of the century. Jenson's book lifts the lid on the often hidden world of Formula 1. He reveals his relationships with some of the biggest names in Formula 1: Lewis Hamilton, Michael Schumacher, Fernando Alonso as well some of the most colorful characters like Flavio Briatore, Ron Dennis, Frank Williams and serial winner Ross Brawn. Above all, he puts you right inside the cockpit, in the driving seat, traveling at over 200 miles per hour, battling the fear of death, showing you what happens when it goes wrong at high speed and allowing you to experience the euphoria of crossing the line first.
