Gerald Donaldson / Paperback / February 2003
Villeneuve became a legend in his own lifetime: a driver whose skill and daring personified the ideals of Grand Prix racing. With his flamboyantly aggressive driving style and his distinctive scarlet Ferrari, he captured the imagination of a vast international audience as no other driver
has in recent times. His tremendous fighting spirit and pure passion for driving produced so much high drama and deeply felt emotion that Villeneuve became one of the greatest sporting heroes. His enduring legend owes much to its classic elements of tragedy, for he was a charming young man
of humble origins who achieved undreamed of fame and fortune by giving his all to the sport that ultimately took his life. This is his story.

Jacques Villeneuve avoided motor racing when his famous father was alive. It's surprising that he became a race car driver soon after Gilles Villeneuve's tragic death in a racing crash. After
trying different types of racing, Jacques moved to Formula One racing in 1996. He performed very well that year as a rookie and then won the world championship in 1997. Jacques' story is quite a remarkable journey

Timothy Collings / Paperback / December 1997
This biography tells of Jacques Villeneuve's childhood and sporting prowess. He learned to ski in Switzerland, reputedly well enough to have become an international-class competitor, before deciding to follow in his father's
footsteps and take up motor racing. Jacques Villeneuve has recently taken the world of motor racing by storm, and is now widely regarded as one of the best racing drivers in the world; not surprising, perhaps, for the only son of racing giant Gilles Villeneuve. The book also shows what he
is like now, in his mid-20s, having excelled in IndyCar where he won the World Series Driver's title before moving into the arena once dominated by his father - Formula One. Ever the individual, he chose not to go to Ferrari, his father's old team, but instead to Williams, a team hit hard
by the loss of Ayrton Senna.
