About the Author
Adrian Newey OBE is arguably the greatest car designer in the history of Formula One. Newey has worked in both Formula One and IndyCar racing as an immensely successful race engineer, aerodynamicist, designer and technical director. After designing championship-winning Formula One cars for Williams F1 and McLaren, Newey moved to Red Bull Racing in 2007, where he is currently Red Bull Racing's Chief Technical Officer. He has won 10 Formula One Constructors' titles (more than any other designer), helping some of the world's most famous drivers to Drivers' championship wins, including over 150 Grands Prix.

Unexpected - drawings are not state of the art. He is engineer, not painter. I just got surprised by that. Expected something like Giorgio Piola does, but as black & white sketches... Expeienced kind of doodles.
I will recommend it for R&D chaps in Software industry. I see huge commonality in approach and methods.
Liked very much the early "garagiste" stories of March and Williams. However... set over the course of almost 4 decades, I expected a little more insight into the intra and inter team politics, and a better selection of "amusing anecdotes", most of which fell very flat... was that really the most fun they got upto? it sounded to me like the publisher had asked Adrian to bung in a few humorous stories, the result was, reading them, they were a bit forced... There must be hundreds of semi-secret Kimi stories at the very least. There are quite a few typos in the book which also disappointed (considering the nature of the book), and pics also quite rubbish. I think it could be improved by photos to illustrate the (very interesting) points on aero. Also, for each chapter, it might be worth having the championship standings outlined more clearly. I figure it might work better as a gbp50 fully-illustrated "coffee table" book rather than what it is.
