Available in a new, smaller format: the first authorized biography of the extraordinarily gifted sportsman, Stirling Moss. Moss drove professionally in nearly 500 races until his near-fatal crash in 1962, and his tally of wins was proportionally higher than any other driver's, by a wide margin. His entire life and career unfold in great detail: family history and school days, his start on the track and entrance to international competition, his experience driving for Mercedes, the private races, and the crash and recovery. Because the author enjoyed free access to every aspect of Moss's life, many of the amazing stories here have never been told before. Designed by David Costa, who created "The Beatles Anthology."
Sir Stirling Craufurd Moss raced professionally over 500 times until his near fatal crash in 1962. At the end of his racing career, he was the most famous Briton - no footballer, jockey, boxer or pop star has approached the national adulation Moss received. In this book Robert Edwards recounts the life of this extraordinary man, whose tally of wins was proportionately higher than any other driver's, ever, by a wide margin. During his colourful racing career Stirling Moss was incredibly gifted and competitive, and has talked in detail to Robert Edwards about his eventful life, from the bullying at school which helped forge his competitive spirit to the crash that almost ended his life.
