The two-time World MotoGP champion's own explosive story
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.

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!
