Why do some racing teams and drivers succeed so brilliantly while others, even those who seem packed with potential, fail? If anyone knows, it would be Derek Daly. After a remarkable racing career that spanned nearly two decades, Daly turned his attention to the mechanics of success. He has parlayed his experience and hard-won understanding into a phenomenal second career teaching the principles of high performance to audiences throughout the auto racing and business worlds.
This book offers readers the benefit of Daly's insight--and a rare inside look at world-class auto racing. Drawing on his original research and firsthand experience with some of the legends of professional auto racing--including Rusty Wallace, Roger Penske, Mario Andretti, and A. J. Foyt--Daly discusses why some individuals and teams fail to reach their potential while others become successful and famous.
A complete course in winning, the book outlines the six key aspects of becoming a successful race car driver. Daly points out the different strengths and weaknesses among different drivers; and accordingly, he emphasizes the importance of creating an environment that takes advantage of these differences. As entertaining as it is instructive, his book will open a world of possibilities to race drivers, motorsports fans, and anyone who wants to know what it takes to win.
