Like all car enthusiasts, you’ve no doubt daydreamed about being a full-time racecar driver. Unfortunately, if you haven’t attained that goal by the age of 25, you can pretty much forget Ron Dennis or Roger Penske offering you a lucrative contract. Derek Daly’s Race to Win is not just a book for people like Michael Schumacher, though; it’s also for non-racecar drivers who want to succeed in their daily lives. Daly, a former competition driver, bases his path to success on the Champion’s Pyramid—six skills that he thinks are necessary to become a top-tier racer. Throughout his book, Daly recounts his own racing career, from moving up through the junior ranks to his flashes of success in Formula 1, CART and World Sports Car. He is quick to point out where in his career he made mistakes that prevented him from becoming one of the best. He studies other championship-caliber drivers and analyzes how they either excelled or stumbled on each of the skills in his Champion’s Pyramid. For budding Indy 500 champions or simply fans of racing, Race to Win makes a great read.
