As a 5-foot 2-inch, 100-pound woman, she had to qualify a little quicker and race a little faster than the boys -- just to earn the respect she would otherwise be given if she weren't the "girl on the track, driving the princess mobile."

I have a newfound respect for Danica Patrick after reading her autobiography. The book is an easy, one day read and dull at times, but tells you a lot about racing. I now realize that Danica does not just jump behind a wheel and start driving as fast as she can. I admire her for her courage and desire to breach a "man's world".

I think this book is good if you have anything to do with racing and is especially inspiring if you are a girl. It is about Danica Patrick's start in the racing industry and all the struggle and hard times she had to overcome to make it to the top. All those times obviously paid off for her to make her dream come true.

Loved this book as I am an avid Nascar fan and I have been to many races in person. Plus she is a lady driver which is great.The men were not too happy to have to her at first but she does bring a lot of publicity to the sport and they all like that.

I'm a fan of Danica's but the story telling had too much fluff in it.

So eye-rollingly craptastic I'm making up words. The most interesting thing was learning that Cowboy Mouth played at her wedding reception.

I thought the book was as good as racing could be. If your one those people who hate Danica by her racing. You should read this book then, see what its like from her perspective.
