This is a must-have book for any Helio Castroneves or Indycar fan. Helio tells his story about how he got into racing and the struggles he and his family faced in helping him get to the top. He also describes his joy at winning the "DAncing With the Stars" title and the birth of his daughter plus the hardship of being indicted by the Feds for tax evasion, along with his sister and lawyer and the triumph of being found not guilty on all counts. There are also some great photos of him throughout his career. I bought my copy at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway during the race weekend and I'm glad I did. For a great read, buy this book!

This is an excellent book. Not only can Helio drive and dance, he has come out with a fascinating book about his racing career. Starting with karts in Brazil, he talks about how he got started in racing and the difficulties of making it to where he is today. How his father, sister and family members took financial risks, worked hard and refused to give up when things looked bleak. Reading this book will not only teach you about how Helio learned to drive fast and build confidence, you'll learn about mental preparation and the business side of racing, too. You will also enjoy a fascinating look at the difficulties securing sponsors, dealing with team owners and managers, living in parts of the world where you don't speak the language. Helio's true personality comes alive, page by page. If you are a racing enthusiast and want to know what it takes to go from a young kid with a dream to one of the best drivers in the world, read this book. It will give you a real appreciation for the hard work, difficulties and perseverance it takes to make it to the top of this great sport. Once you start reading it you will have a difficult time putting it down. Great job Helio! May there be many more fences for you to climb.

Format: Hardcover
This isn't just, as one reviewer stated, a must for every racing fan. It is far more then that.It is a fascinating and revealing glimpse of the one-dimensional commitment required to succeed in almost any field. Helio, if he is truly the sole author, has revealed his family and himself in more detail then he probably intended and the text and content has the flavor and "English as a second language" gait that almost allows you to hear Helio speaking the words.A great book, period, written buy a person who reveals some fascinating things about family and the financial realities of modern professional racing. Probably the best autobiography of a sports figure I have ever read.-Wade-Oxford,Md.

I've never seen my husband of 6 years actually read a book until this one. As a huge fan of Helio Castroneves he was excited to receive it as an anniversary gift and to get it signed by him at one of the races. He read it cover to cover in just a few days.

This is truly a great read. Not long, easily read, but very informative. Really exposes Helio's background and the awesome support of his family. Bought 6 copies for friends and am buying 6 more for Christmas gifts. By the way, Helio was happy to sign them all at the track!
