Michael Schumacher: The Edge of Greatness

Official Description from Author:

Michael Schumacher is the outstanding Formula One driver of his generation and, statistically, the greatest ever. Gifted with a rare blend of superior ability and nerve that defines a champion, for 15 seasons he has left rivals trailing in his wake, winning an unprecedented seven world drivers’ championships.
But he is a controversial figure, feared for his ruthless tactics, despised for using extreme methods in pursuit of his goals. THE EDGE OF GREATNESS examines Schumacher’s entire career: from his first Grand Prix with Jordan to his Benetton world championships and his attempt to win back Ferrari’s crown. It tells the story behind Schumacher’s record five consecutive world titles, uncovers the secrets of how he has stayed at the top for so long and examines the impact of his domination on the sport. Frank, honest, adroit and in-depth – James Allen reveals the anatomy of a champion.

Our Writers Review

This book tells the brilliant story of 7 time Formula 1 world champion Michael Schumacher. Written by ex-F1 ITV commentator James Allen the story of Schumacher is told magnificently covering all of the stunning highs and controversial lows of the German’s first F1 career from 1991-2006. The Edge of Greatness uncovers all the great Schumacher stories whether it be his fierce battles with Ayrton Senna and Mika Hakkinen on and off the track or his brief spell playing professional football in Switzerland. In my opinion, the best moments of the book were the opening chapters particularly the first. The story being told is of Michael’s controversial incident in qualifying for the 2006 Monaco Grand Prix. The rest of the book is equally gripping and features insight from key figures in Michael’s career such as Flavio Briatore, Max Mosley, and Martin Brundle. It’s a must-read for Formula 1 fans, I highly recommend it.
