Automoblog Book Garage: My Greatest Defeat

A new book reveals honest insights from famous Formula 1, Indycar, NASCAR, and Le Mans drivers.
Pencil sketches by comic book artist Giuseppe ?Cammo? Camuncoli capture each driver’s likeness.
Our Book Garage series showcases what every gearhead and enthusiast should add to their library. 

I had no idea Will Buxton – TV commentator, host, and racing columnist –  was working on a book. Even more curiously, it’s a book about a single subject: Losing. Setback. Loss. Defeat. Buxton thought it would be a good idea to sit down with some of the most competitive people on the planet and talk with them about the thing they dislike the most. My Greatest Defeat: Stories of Hardship and Hope from Motor Racing’s Finest Heroes is a surprisingly good book.
As a matter of fact, it is a very good book.
My Greatest Defeat: A Storyteller In Action
I only say surprising because it was written by Will Buxton. Buxton was one of those mildly-irritating F1 pit reporters – he was on the American coverage of F1 a while back – and I always sort of downplayed him. Racing broadcasters are a pet peeve of mine, and although Buxton can occasionally provide insight or reveal a deft observation here and there, I pretty much put him in the camp of “the race would be better if he’d just shut up.”
With My Greatest Defeat Buxton shows himself to be a skillful interviewer. He neither backs away from asking difficult questions nor is he blunt and crass as broadcasting sometimes demands. With this book, it would have been very easy to be trite and banal as the title would suggest. I opened it and said to myself, “let me guess" This is about how I, a young and modern racer overcame all those odds to become a successful young and modern racer.” I was very wrong about that.
Dangerous Ground At Point-Blank Range
My Greatest Defeat is anything but trite. It is incisive and illuminating about the subject matter at hand. And the subject matter at hand is as highly interesting as it is highly personal. What the book delves into, one racer at a time, is a simple question: “How does it really feel to lose"” This is dangerous ground to tread.
First off, because it’s very close to that predictable “what was it like out there"” territory from TV broadcasts of old. Secondly, because racers are, generally, a taciturn bunch. They don?t talk much. And when they do, it’s not about their feelings or what it’s like to lose or crash or almost die. What this book really gets down to is the deeply personal and emotional territory that most people don’t like talking about; and exceedingly competitive people like racers are loathe to talk about: Failing.
Related: This book will make you a walking Formula 1 scholar.
A Gentle Approach
Buxton handles this with a rather typical British wit and charm, but also a sensitivity and empathy for who he’s dealing with and what he&#...
