Unless I’m Very Much Mistaken

Official Description from Author:

The voice of motor racing and much loved public figure – and the man responsible for introducing millions of viewers to the previously inaccessible world of Formula 1 – tells the story of his incident-packed life, with a brand new chapter on his globetrotting adventures since retirement. Murray Walker is a national treasure.  He also talks about the biggest changes in the sport over the last 50 years, in particular the safety issues which came to the fore after the tragic death of Ayrton Senna, which he witnessed first hand. His partnership with James Hunt behind the microphone is the subject of some hilarious anecdotes, while his views on drivers past and present such as Stirling Moss, Jackie Stewart, Damon Hill and Michael Schumacher make for fascinating reading.

Many motorsport fans today still refer to the name ‘Murray Walker’ as the voice of motorsport. Murray Walker’s autobiography is a must read publication for all motorsport fans. Walker is well known for his enthusiasm behind the microphone during his Formula One commentating days, and this enthusiasm flows into how the book is written. The book covers some of his childhood memories, his love for motorcycles, time during the war, his successful advertising career and the offer from the BBC to take over the F1 commentary seat. His passion for talking about motorsport was matched by the knowledge he gained from hours of research before each race. He gives good insight into what it was like in the world of Formula One during his time in the F1 commentary box. Murray Walker also made a fair amount of mistakes and bizarre phrases during his career which helped him gain popularity. These gaffes (that became known as Murrayisms) keep you entertained throughout. This is a book I would definitely recommend especially if you want a reminder of what went on in those Formula One glory days.
