Williams: A Different Kind of Life

Official Description from Author:

The racing car constructor was on his way to Nice Airport on a spring afternoon in 1986 when he lost control of his car, suffering horrific injuries in a crash that left him a quadriplegic. For his wife, Ginny, the accident meant taking on new and unwanted roles as head of the household and family decision-maker, while also struggling to overcome the anger and grief she felt after the accident.

In A Different Kind of Life, Ginny tells her story with honesty and humor, set against the glamorous backdrop of Formula One racing. She documents life before and after the devastating accident – from falling in love with Frank at first sight to learning how to cope with his needs after he became severely disabled but remained fiercely independent.

A testament to the power of compassion and perseverance, A Different Kind of Life is a moving and inspirational story.

This is a great book for those not old enough to have been around when Frank Williams’ life changed forever. Other than detailing what happened first hand, it too is an extraordinary love story that teaches you the bittersweet way of life and how fast it can change. A must-read for every F1-fan who’s interested in the story of Williams and the exceptional woman behind the team – Ginny Williams. For me, it’s more than just an F1 book.
