Descriptions du produit

Showing anything is possible when determination meets talent, two-time World MotoGP champion Casey Stoner shares his incredible journey from Queensland toddler with an extraordinary ability on a motorbike, to his decision to retire at twenty-seven with nothing left to prove. For the first time, he tells of his early family life, the development of his riding skills and why his parents decided to sell everything and travel from Australia to Europe to chase the dream and support his aim to become World Champion when he was only fourteen years old. As fearless with his opinions as he is on the racetrack, Casey includes all the highs and lows of his life so far: the real reason he left for Europe so young, his thoughts on racing as it stands today, the riders' hierarchy, the politics of racing, the importance of family, his battle with illness and why he decided to turn his back on a multimillion-dollar contract when he was still winning. And he will let us in on some of the new goals he has set for himself.PUSHING THE LIMITS is a unique and remarkable account of self-sacrifice and tenacity to succeed against the odds, the uplifting story of a young Australian who took on the world on his terms, his way ...and won.

Fast book for a very fast man 14 novembre 2013
Par Dudley Carr - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
The books is a clear, unvarnished story about how Casey managed to beat the odds to become arguably the fastest man on two wheels. It's not a literary masterwork, but if you love motorcycle racing it's very insightful into what really happens in MotoGP. If you've enjoyed Casey's career in MotoGP, you'll have an even greater sense of how much MotoGP has lost with Casey's departure.

A must read even if you are not a fan 31 décembre 2013
Par Mario de Sousa - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
this is one of the best and most honest motorsport books that I have read. The insight into motoGP as well as what he and his family went through, it at times put a lump in my throat. Casey is obviously a talented rider with extremely high standards and huge drive for success, yet he always kept his feet firmly planted on the ground...
Great book for the MotoGP enthusiast. 6 décembre 2013

I'm a big Casey Stoner fan just so that's out in the open.
Pushing the Limits is pretty damn good. It's an incredibly fast book to read - I got through it over a few nights before bed - but it's somehow very informative in it's easy prose and succinct style. I learned a lot about the guy and the sport and how each affected the other.
As he tells his story from toddler to MotoGP champion you can see how his thoughts on this machine evolve over time. Think sausage: you might like the taste of it, but you don't necessarily want to see how it's made. I think for Casey, exposure to the making of MotoGP, the wheeling and dealing, the lies and half truths - the game if you will - didn’t suit a guy who is of the “say what you do, and do what you say” persuasion.
One “small” aspect of this that sticks out to me are his thoughts on tires in the 2006 season - honestly I didn't know that the allocation could be so capricious. It backs up what Vale said about his tires in the last race, something that I sort of felt was an excuse, but that turns out was a definite issue - that the tires changed on, let us just say, whims. A guy who believes in honesty and following through with your word clearly would not be pleased in such a system.
He doesn't say too much about his teammates or other riders that he hasn't already said, but when he does elaborate, especially on Dani Pedrosa it's interesting. He mentions enough about his time at Ducati for his thoughts on the bike to be insightful though perhaps not definitive. Does he say why he could ride that bike to victory while others couldn't? Not outright but from the preceding chapters you learn that his whole career up to that point was spent on hand-me-down bikes with numerous issues that had to be ridden around - and winning on them. Take that as an explanation.
He does mention that after the 2007 season, Ducati chose not to fund real further development of the bike which clearly irked him. There’s regret in his tone when he wonders what might have been had the majority in Ducati listened to him and spent the money to develop and further improve the bike. What's fascinating is that he really liked the Ducati on certain tracks MORE than his Honda.
I won't rehash the whole book but but suffice it to say, he goes into a lot, leaves out some, but overall it reads like a fair minded (positive) assessment. It's not like "What if I had never Tried It?" which was entertaining but comes off like an infomercial.
I really enjoyed the book and think anyone who has an interest in MotoGP, Stoner fan or not, would enjoy reading it.

Easy read with great insight 24 février 2014
Par Andrew Lambert - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Casey has always been my favorite rider so I am a little bias with my review and going into it I figured I was going to eat it up. It is a great read and my one complaint would be, even though he does give a lot of otherwise unknown details regarding the inner workings of MotoGP and the mind set and emotions he and the riders go through, I thought it was a little light in some areas where readers could use a lot more explanation. His last ride for Ducati when he crashed out on the siting lap at Valencia, or the Leguna Seca battle with Rossi, or when Rossi took him out at Jerez; Casey touches on these but I was expecting quite a bit more from some of the more controversial high lights of his career.
For better or worse the book feels like it was written at the 3rd grade level. It is a very easy read, which makes the book seem much shorter and lacking depth (which is only partially true). No offense to Casey, but you can tell he is a motorcycle racer first! He points this out in more than one instance in the book.
The book has 2 different sections of quality color pictures, some of which I had never seen before, that really add to the book.
Even as a huge fan of Casey's I got so much out of this book in terms of who he is and what makes him tick. Casey is one of the most (if not THE most) misunderstood riders MotoGP has seen and in his book you get a much better understanding of just who he is.
I recommend this book for:
Any fan of Casey's
Any fan of MotoGP or bike racing in general
Any young rider looking for inspiration
And especially all the Stoner haters out there! I dare you to read this!
