Having watched many excellent Sir Jackie Stewart DVDs and film/TV interviews, I had never really bothered to read his autobiography Winning is Not Enough despite it having been a bestseller. Winning is Not Enough is one of the better and more complete F1 driver autobiographies published

Sir Jackie Stewart is one of the most highly regarded names in global sport - winner of three F1 World Championships, 27 Grands Prix and ranked in the top five drivers of all time. On retiring from the circuit, he went on to build an equally impressive international business career. In the 1960s and into the 70s, with his black cap, sideburns and aviator shades Jackie Stewart was an unmistakable icon in a glorious era of style, glamour and speed. On the track, his story is one of drama, excitement, tragedy, controversy, celebrity, danger and massive success.

Nominations are declared open for the title of "Word's Biggest Twit". Since I get to go first, I'm nominating . president, Max Mosley, who indirectly referred to Jackie Stewart as a "certified half-wit" in a recent conversation. Whether you are or are not a Stewart fan, you'd be hard pressed to agree with Mosley; pretty much everything Stewart has attempted in life has turned out well. Mosley's statements says more about himself than Stewart. Jackie Stewart is not stupid and is not a half-wit. As a detailed summation of Jackie Stewart the man, then, Winning Is Not Enough is decent verging on pretty good. As a motor racing book, however, it's gob-smackingly awful.

On retiring from the circuit, he went on to build an international business career. This book covers his career both as a driver and a businessman. Jackie Stewart was born in Dumbarton. In the early 60s he dominated the British club and European F3 racing scenes and in 1965 he partnered Graham Hill in F1.

Winning Is Not Enough is his autobiography, it covers his early life in Scotland and his battles with dyslexia, then follows his journey through the world of Formula 1 driving, right the way up to owning his own team – which would go on to become the Red Bull Racing, one of the most dominant teams in the modern history of the sport. In many respects his autobiography is a must read for anyone with even a passing interest in motor racing, and it makes a cracking weekend page-turner.

What can you say about Jackie Stewart that hasen't already been said and yet there can never be enough said about this remarkable man and what he means to Auto Racing.His contribution to the sport is incredible but it was his tenacity when it came to track safety that has saved so many lives that his worth cannot be measured.
When Stewart started racing in F-1 it was not uncommon to have several drivers killed in a season,it was considerd exceptable losses and drivers were considerd expendable.Stewart lost so many close friends that he became disgusted with the situation and took it upon himself to change it and with the help of a handful of other drivers he led a movement that changed Auto Racing forever.Change comes slowly however and it took he and his small group of drivers refusing to race at the most dangerous tracks to change things for good.The debt modern day drivers owe to this man for the safety rules and conditions that exist today is incredible,he has literly been a life saver.
Stewart has had a remarkable life.He was one of the best F-1 Drivers in the sport's history and his warm personality and great knowledge made him a fine announcer when his driving carrier was over.His years with NBC will never be forgotten by those of us that remember him.His Scottish accent can be identified instantly to his many fans world wide.
It is his business savvy that this book brings to light that few of us knew about that rounds out this book and makes it invaluable to Stewart fans.This is a great read and in paperback it is very affordable, it's only drawback being a lack of photos,which is disappointing.This is the best bio to date on Stewart and I highly recommend it.-FS

This book does a great job of capturing Jackie Stewart's career starting from a very early age through his building of a SGP team and beyond. His approach to writing captures his passion for his competitors, his business partners, and his close friends. It's an insight into what makes a world champion excel in a car as well as after stepping into the real world of business. It captures the highs of racing as well as the lows with great detail on how those things affected him through his career. He's not bashful about what his opinion is and where he stands which is a breath of fresh air in the world of scripted responses and political driven decisions. The one thing that is clear is that he has always been driven to succeed in whatever he has done and in most cases has done just that. Lastly, from the side of his in depth approach to sharing how important his close friends and business partners have been to him really gets you to know what he's all about. Great read for anyone interested in the history of F1 as he covers about half of it's history in the present era.

I'd like to call this a "50/50" book, in that the the first 50% of the book should have been really all that was written, with maybe a blurb about his ownership of Patrick Stewart racing...and the other 50%, pretty much all that happened after his racing or racing-safety-crusade days devoted to maybe an entire chapter.

The first 50%: My God, what a fascinating book.
The second 50%: My God, I'd rather read a dictionary.

If you are even looking at this book, chances are you are very interested in F1. Jackie describes his life in words that sound wonderfully simple, genuine and heartfelt, making sure to connect everything with racing. If you've watched Jackie speak, you will undoubtedly hear his voice while reading this book. The man's personality really comes through.

His love for racing is clear, but his love for the people in his life comes through even more strongly. The strength and depth of relationships and his attention to the smallest details when dealing with people are amazing. I bought this book expecting to learn about the man. Instead, as an aspiring entrepreneur, this book turned out to be exactly what I needed. The deftness, honesty and tact with which Jackie approaches opportunities is marvelous.

The book is one-sided in that it contains only positive things. Given that Jackie is still alive and still working on business partnerships, I guess it makes sense that he would leave out some of the not-so-rosy stuff, but it does reduce the force of some of the words, especially later in the book. Also, be prepared for a lot of emotions and crying. There really is a lot of crying going on here and it starts to get a "wee bit" too much.

Despite the problems, this book really inspired me to work even harder and pay attention to a lot of things in my life that I wasn't. Yes, this book did change my life and I will heartily recommend it, especially to young people.

Enjoyable bio but not earth shattering. If you're a Stewart fan, there's little here that you wouldn't know.

A good read with many life lessons. He mentions way too many people I don't care about and seems to go on and on about non racing related parts of his life. Having said that, I highly recommend the book. It gives insight to that era in formula one racing and also a close look at other drivers he raced.
I received the book in pretty good shape; I would recommend that the seller provide some protection of the cover corners and closed pages from pokes and prods during shipment. For whatever reason, the package was opened in transit. I got a kick out of the book itself, and Sir Jackie definitely has the ability to remember important names in his life, and address his relationship to them throughout his life experiences.
