Description

Johnny Herbert was one of the most brilliant natural talents to emerge in motor racing, but for all his bravery and prowess, he's lucky to be alive. After becoming British Junior Karting Champion (losing part of a finger in the process), then the Formula 3 title for Eddie Jordan in 1987, he was all set for a glittering debut season in Formula 1 when he was caught in a mass pile-up at Brands Hatch. That horrific crash threatened to end his career, but Herbert made a miraculous recovery, was a hugely popular winner of the British Grand Prix in 1995, and enjoyed 25 years of competitive motorsport, becoming the only British driver to win the 24 hours of Le Mans followed by a Grand Prix. And all that despite driving every pace in extreme pain; in fact, as the first and only disabled driver in F1 history.

While chronicling an extraordinary life behind the wheel with cheer and his trademark cheeky humour, What Doesn't Kill You... contains a wealth of stories from the hard end of Formula 1- on Johnny's team-mate Michael Schumacher, legends like Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost, his fellow British adversaries Damon Hill, Martin Brundle and Nigel Mansell, and of course all those gruesome accidents. With an encyclopaedic knowledge and love of the sport, Johnny Herbert's autobiography, much like the man himself, delivers brilliance from the back of the grid.

Critic Reviews

“Typically ebullient... a testament to his mental and emotional strength.”

From the opening page, Johnny's book had me smiling; it was almost like he was reading it aloud to me, injecting his personality into every page. BadgerGP Inspirational... [his] typical, self-deprecating humour is on display throughout. Reading the book is what you imagine it must be like to sit with him at the pub and have him tell you the story of his career. Bleacher Report Johnny Herbert is one of those rare special individuals... his story goes beyond the ordinary struggle. Told in that familiar voice that people have come to know and admire, the book is riddled with laugh-out-loud anecdotes from the world of Formula One. Inside Line Media Honest, rich in self-deprecating humour, and a thoroughly entertaining read... Herbert's recollections are packed with remarkable tales. F1 Fanatic Typically ebullient... a testament to his mental and emotional strength. MotorSport
