  A great read

When i first heard about this book i was expecting it to be poor at best, considering it was written by a racing driver and not someone who is a writer by profession. I was blown away by how well written and hard to put down this book was. While reading this i had a huge sense of top gear nostalgia. Highly recommended read!

  An Excellent Read Indeed

I bought this book thinking it would be adequate at best, but it is truly an excellent read...I can't put it down and find myself reading way beyond when I think I'd better stop! :)

It is a fascinating book which gives real insights into the world of dream sports cars and motor sport...not least behind the scenes at Top Gear. Don't hesitate, buy the book and see for yourself! Honestly, I'm already really hoping for a sequel.

  I love the Stig!

To anyone who asks "who cares who the Stig is?" or "what's cool about being able to drive really fast?" or even "why on earth would you watch a programme hosted by some middle aged losers who still think they're hard by breaking the speed limit even though they're well into their 50s?", I say: YOU HAVE TO READ THIS BOOK!!!

Sure, you could go out and socialise with your friends or visit your family, but then can you really do all these things to the max without knowing the true identity of the Stig? Picture the scene: you're in the pub with your mates, or more likely a World of Warcraft convention, and someone says something like "I wish I knew more about the Stig". BAM!!! You come along a knock them out with your expert knowledge of the man. That's the kind of reward you're in for after reading this cover to cover.

I know what you're thinking: "I still don't see how this could possibly be of interest to anyone with a life, surely it's just a guy who covers his face while driving fast". Well let me tell you why it's of interest - he can drive REALLY fast!!! The bottom line is you would only know just how fast he can drive and just where in the world he has demonstrated this skill after reading this book. For that reason, I believe this to be the best book money can buy this Christmas.
