The Edge of Greatness book cover

Michael Schumacher: The Edge of Greatness

He [Schumacher] won more Grands Prix, he won more championship titles, he scored more championship points, he appeared on the podium more times, he took more pole positions and set more fastest laps of the race than any other driver in F1 history.

James Allen gives a mostly unbiased account of how and why Schumacher managed such a career in this biography. He takes up the innumerable controversies that Schumacher’s career was dotted with, all of which make for a very interesting read.

I was hooked to the book the moment I started reading it, especially because I was mostly unaware of any Formula 1 history. It made me see the sport in a whole new way. Highly recommended for all F1 fans.
