Winning Is Not Enough [With DVD]

Jackie Stewart, Author Headline Book Publishing $27.95 (548p) ISBN 978-0-7553-1537-6
Part sports autobiography, part self-help book and part business guide, Stewart's tell-all is an honest and occasionally self-indulgent account of a life well lived. Stewart raced Formula One cars during the 1960s and '70s, when the sport was much more primitive and dangerous than today, and much of this mammoth book is devoted to his stubborn and successful efforts to implement safety reforms. Narrated with brutal honesty, the book captures the driver's struggle with dyslexia and his rise from working in a family-owned service garage to world-class clay-pigeon shooter and winner of three F1 world championships and 27 Grand Prix races. Upon retiring from the track, Stewart worked as a television announcer and businessman, as well as developed his own F1 racing team. His dry Scottish character shines through here, and his recall of specific races as if they happened last week is impressive. Unfortunately, Stewart occasionally gets caught up in his own pride, name-dropping obsessively, and some content (such as an entire chapter about the dogs he's owned) is unnecessary. Nevertheless, Stewart's story is, for the most part, well told. 14 pages of b&w and 8 pages of color photographs, plus a DVD.
