Found 22nd Apr 2011Made hot 23rd Apr 2011
Poundland have taken delivery of both Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton's books, both in Hardback. This deal was seen in Swansea, but it applies nationwide aparently (subject to stock availability!). The next cheapest price I saw these going for was around the £4-6 in the works some 6 months ago.

Jenson Button's book has a RRP of £20.00 on the back and is an in depth account of his championship year with Brawn GP in 2009 and It even has a foreward from Ross Brawn himself. the book Includes an Introduction on the whole Honda pulling out-Williams sigining- Brawn buying out saga, along with a pretty detailed race by race account for the whole season which includes a testing, a qualifying, a race and post race report along with some pretty good photos There are better reviews on amazon if your interested to find out more.

Hamilton's book is the "special celebration edition" which again has an RRP of £20. more of a short autobiography with an emphasis on his 2008 World championship season. It also has a few nice pictures and again, if your intersted there are better reviews on amazon

Good spot, thanks OP!

What's on your mind Jenson?

RUBBER!

they both seem very nice and very boring guys

Great drivers , well Lewis is.

At least the racing is exciting now , unlike the personalities of the drivers

Awesome find. will have to pay a visit to my local one

Great, thanks

The Jenson Button one is a good read. You wouldn't think it'd be

Those years in the wilderness with BAR/Honda did him the world of good in my opinion.

Made him appreciate his championship, when it came, that little bit more.

I can't believe Hamilton contemplates leaving McLaren, the team that made him.

He only needs to look at his team mate to see how much of a fortunate position he's always been in.

Hamilton is still a baby, yeah hes grown up a bit but he still has his tantrums

The only reason he's so big is because he is one of (if not the only) driver to go straight to a top team in his first season, If they'd of stuck Sutil in that car it would of been him who nearly won (in fact he probably would have won seeing as he doesn't have hissy fits)

Will have a look for these, I don't read and well I think I need to start.

I read the Jenson book when it came out and I found it very good - Just the right amount of technical detail.

You sir lack an objective way of looking at things.
McLaren put him in his first season alongside a double world champion because they knew how good he was and he beat Alonso which showed they were right.
Yes, he and the team threw away the championship that year but it wasn’t just down to his lack of experience the team made some bad calls as well.

He’s not big because he started with a top team, he started with a top team because he’s big and he has proved that by beating every world champion that he has driven alongside in the same team; Alonso and Button.

He is certainly flawed to a degree but at least not in the obnoxious way that Schumacher was that led him to openly cheat his way to championships through bad sportsmanship.
It would be good to see him race alongside Vettel because if he beat him over a season that would surely show him as the top driver of the current pack.
It’s not just about how many championships you win but how you do against your team mates. I think he’s unbeaten on that front.
