From the Inside Flap:

Since 1994 Michael Schumacher has dominated Grand Prix, winning the FIA World championship in five of the last nine seasons. In 2001 / 2002 he broke almost every motor racing record and is now the most successful Formula One driver of all time.

Now, in the official Schumacher book, we discover for the very first time the real Michael Schumacher -- through extensive first person material, as well as a narrative by Sabine Kehm, a journalist, colleague and friend of Schumacher. Fantastic new photographs from renowned European photographer, Michel Comte, give us new insight into the man and his life. For the first time the private man who gives nothing away and the driver who takes no hostages relaxes and opens up. This book will be a real surprise to all fans of Formula One and anyone who's wondered just what goes on behind the superhero's mask.

We learn about Schumacher's past, the secrets of his extraordinary success, his family, his view of other drivers and the state of F1, his opinions on controversial races and drivers, and we are given an insider's view of Ferrari.

At last one of the truly great sporting heroes opens up in an intimate, fantastically photographed book.

From the Back Cover:

"a surprising profile of the most successful Formula One driver of all time. Dozens of intimate photos and a series of candid interviews bring out the reassuringly human personality behind that Teutonic countenance" -- Daily Express

"gloriously unguarded" -- Daily Telegraph
