Synopsis
Michael Schumacher is the outstanding Formula One driver of his generation and, statistically, the greatest ever. Gifted with a rare blend of superior ability and nerve that defines a champion, his performances have captured the imagination of fans all over the world. For 15 seasons, he has left rivals trailing in his wake, winning an unprecedented seven world drivers' championships. But he is a controversial figure, feared for his ruthless tactics, despised for using extreme methods in pursuit of his goals. "The Edge of Greatness" examines Schumacher's entire career: from his first Grand Prix with Jordan to his Benetton world championships and his attempt to win back Ferrari's crown. It tells the story behind Schumacher's record five consecutive world titles, uncovers the secrets of how he has stayed at the top for so long and examines the impact of his domination on the sport. Now, on his retirement from the sport, it is time to reappraise the man behind the tabloid stereotype. Frank, honest, adroit and in-depth - James Allen reveals the anatomy of a champion.

From the Back Cover
Michael Schumacher is the outstanding Formula One driver of the 1990s. Gifted with that blend of superior ability and nerve that defines a champion, he has earned his place amongst the greats of the sport. But he is also a highly controversial figure - feared by his rivals as a ruthless, determined racer who will stop at nothing to achieve his goals, and criticized on all sides for his unwillingness to admit mistakes.

Against the backdrop of Schumacher's quest to win the world championship for Ferrari, ITV's James Allen examines the contrasting sides of the man behind the headlines. With the full co-operation of Schumacher and the Ferrari team over two Grand Prix seasons, he tells the inside story of Schumacher's fall from grace following his cynical foul on Jacques Villeneuve at Jerez in the 1997 title decider, his doomed pursuit of the 1998 world championship and his astonishing comeback from a leg-breaking accident at Silverstone in 1999.

With exclusive insights into Schumacher's methods, both on and off the track, as well as a close look at the workings of the Ferrari team, this is the definitive book on Michael Schumacher - in every sense, a man driven to extremes. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
