'a fascinating profile of an Australian legend' HERALD SUN
'doesn't skirt around the controversies of Brock's life and career' AUSTRALIAN AUTO ACTION
When it comes to Australian sporting icons, Peter Brock sits at the top. After winning Bathurst by an unbelievable six laps in 1979, the 'King of the Mountain', made his way into our households and our hearts. Brock's colourful private life has triggered plenty of rumours but the truth has remained obscure. Here, one of his closest friends, and co-driver, tells the real story.
From his childhood days tearing through the streets of suburban Melbourne to his partnership with Beverley, the Energy Polarizer fiasco, his work for automobile safety and his final, tragic rally in Western Australia, Peter always had a 'red-hot go'.
With more than 200 photographs and a revealing tribute from his daughter, Peter Brock: How Good is This! Is an honest, often funny, and very touching account of Brock's life both inside and outside the cockpit.
