Yet another biography of our Stevenage-born, now Swiss-based hero, Herr Hamilton, which is going to struggle to compete against his autobiography, My Story. No one is denying that the work was brought out for Christmas, yet what is rather interesting is that it was published six days before the Brazilian GP. Surely if they were determined to get the book on the shelves before the spending starts, a couple of weeks wouldn’t have made the difference in what was always going to be one of the deciding points of Lewis’ career. The book itself does provide some interesting quotes into the past season and of his early life. However, as will be the case with many of the these biographies, this book doesn’t offer much more than is available on the web. EF
