Description

Author of Sunday Times best seller Life to the Limit.

In his 17 years as a Formula 1 driver, Jenson Button has picked up a thing or two about how to do the job properly. Sure, you need to be able to drive a car fast - and Jenson is on hand to pass on a few tricks of the trade here - but you also need to know the real rules for making it to the top. 

Like, how to tell a multiple F1 champion they need to check their blind spot. What the difference is between a helmet and a hat, and indeed a 'helmet-hat'. How to practise your champagne spray ahead of the big day. Why it is never, ever, under any circumstances a good idea to buy a yacht. And how to face down your team when you've just stacked their multi-million-pound car into a wall during practice.

But 'JB' (nicknames in F1 run the full range from initials to, well, just using first names) doesn't stop there. HTBAF1D (catchy) lifts the lid on the people, the places, the weird rituals, the motorhomes, the media, the cars, the perks and the disasters. Join Jenson as he reveals how not to race a stupid big truck, why driving Le Mans is like having five shots of tequila before lunch and what to do when you finally hang up your helmet-hat.

Great Book - Great Narration

Jenson's second book is as interesting and entertaining as his autobiography. In "How to Be a. F1 Driver", JB offers the reader an inside look at the life and lifestyle of a modern F1 Driver. In addition to general insights such as the money, the glamour, and the lifestyle of an F1 driver, a massive amount of topics are touched on ranging from; the different systems and setups of the car, driving techniques, how race teams operate, crashing, and how to outperform a team mate, to air travel, fitness, and diet; with everything in-between. Jenson speaks in both general terms and anecdote-laden experiences spanning his racing career. This book is both compelling and a pleasurable read. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in Formula 1 or racing in general.

Another win for JB

I am a big fan of JB. I have always respected how he handled himself as a driver and since leaving Formula 1. I enjoyed his first book immensely and frankly, I purchased this book more as a supportive curiosity with my expectations set lower as I did not think he would have the content to fill another book after already having published his first. I was wrong to ever doubt this book.

Jenson completely delivers a very interesting and engaging book in a format that I initially feared would be gimmicky. The format of “guidebook” for becoming a F1 driver was creative and helped with the flow of the book. The anecdotes and stories were fun and engaging. Excellent narration by Jack Hawkins as well.

After having read several autobiographical works of folks who drove or have been involved in motorsports, I have found (quite unexpectedly I might add) both of Jenson Button’s books to be among the most interesting in the genre. Bravo!

Interessant- aber nicht besser als Jenson Buttons Autobiographie

Jack Hawkins ist ein toller Sprecher- alleine um ihm zuzuhören lohnt sich der Kauf.

Das Buch generell ist gut, man bekommt viele Informationen über den F1-Zirkus. Da ich aber vorher direkt die Autobiographie gehört habe, hat sich vieles wiederholt. Trotzdem bereue ich nicht, das Hörbuch gekauft zu haben.

Jenson Button ist herrlich auf dem Boden geblieben, ironisch und selbstreflektiert. Das macht Spaß!
