Quatrième de couverture

'Donaldson, in his thoughtful and intimate work, has delved behind the headlines and superbly fleshed out the character behind the caricatures of James Hunt' Daily Telegraph

'Donaldson has written a very fine book' Guardian

'The best biography of a racing driver I've ever read . . . it will make you laugh and cry' Classic Cars

James Hunt was a towering personality with a commanding presence, a hugely glamorous public figure who brought Formula One motor racing to the attention of a whole new audience.

Triumphing against all odds to become World Drivers' Champion with McLaren in 1976, Hunt sank into a period of decadence and depression, only to be rejuvenated when he found true love for the first time.

With that came personal contentment and a renewed zest for living, so that one of the most colourful and controversial figures in Grand Prix racing is best remembered by those close to him as a fun-loving, caring man who had a genuinely uplifting presence - qualities that shine through in Gerald Donaldson's compelling and moving account of his life.

Thorough and touching 2 février 2001
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
As most motorsport fanatics will know Gerald Donaldson has written some of the best motor racing books ever written, and this could be his best. I expected a style similar to that in his popular Gilles Villeneuve biography, but instead found a very candid and sensitive coverage of all of James Hunt's life that by itself makes a great tribute to James. Painstakingly written and researched aswell. If you liked the Villeneuve book I would say buy this, it will make you laugh and cry.

Quite entertaining - light reading. 23 septembre 2003
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
First of all, I give this book 3 stars as it was not really one of those "can't put down" books. However, it was a good and entertaining read about the life of James Hunt. When you read this kind of book, you never realize what kind of life these drivers lead away from the track. Donaldson describes James' pursuit of racing glory from local club racer, through the F3 ranks and his entry into F1 via the Hesketh squad. This book certainly shows what racing used to be like in the "good ol' days". It's a far cry from today's sanitized life styles on the current F1 circuit. I recommend this book as well as Donaldson's book on Gilles Villeneuve.

After watching "Rush," read about James Hunt, the man 17 novembre 2013
Par conradb212 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Those old enough to have followed Formula 1 racing back in the 1970s will remember James Hunt as the care-free, impossibly good-looking driver who shocked and entertained the racing establishment with the flaky, bombastic Hesketh racing team, but also as the driver who became Formula One World Champion with McLaren after an epic battle with Niki Lauda. Hunt's career was comparatively brief, and, though an athlete and workout fanatic, he died early at just 45.

After watching the movie "Rush" that mostly dealt with that epic 1976 rivalry between Hunt and Lauda, it was interesting to read Donaldson's biography the entire story of Hunt's life, from start to end. It's interesting, enjoyable reading, though there are some overlaps and holes. Donaldson fairly portrays one of the most colorful personalities Formula 1 racing has ever seen, not shying away from covering stunning excess and behavior that no one might get away with today. But that, perhaps, was all part of the charm and mystique of the man.

Enjoyed This Book. 19 novembre 2013

Very enjoyable read. A bit of a look further into James Hunt's life and into Formula 1 racing. Was intrigued by him after seeing the movie Rush. Books tend to give you a better view of the person away from the Hollywood condensed version.

Well written 28 mai 2014
Par Professor Joseph L. McCauley - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
The book focuses heavily on Hunt's childhood through 1976, his main driving period. Well-written, informative, entertaining, seemingly all of Hunt's blemishes are shown. Both friendship and competition with Lauda are realistically presented, as is Hunt's childish, uncontrollable temper along with his will to drive and win. Very importantly, his fear is exhibited over and over. Some would say that Hunt was not a 'real' driver, his fear confined him to one World championship then he left racing soon afterward. I'm not sure about that judgement. Lauda was far more systematic and far less emotional, was seemingly more professional. Hunt could never avoid looking for a good time, Lauda was apparently focused on winning even off the race course. I enjoyed the book immensely but cannot identify with Hunt's style and ways and certainly won't (superficially) pass judgement. There are many different ways to race and win, and I wouldn't fault anyone for dropping out before losing life or limb.
