Has anyone else read Newey's autobiography?

I read it while in bed with flu after Xmas. An interesting read but it left me with two main impressions: the first was a cautious one that Newey is not a very likeable person, but maybe that's just me; the second was that his account of Senna's crash was not very convincing at all.

I've often thought this about him when watching interviews.

I'll put the book on my reading list. Thanks JMF :thumbs:

I don't recall seeing many interviews with him, but it's interesting that you get the same feeling from them. Let me know what you think of the book.
