Following on from Professor Sid Watkins's bestselling Life at the Limit, this second volume of Formula One memories is sure to appeal to his many fans.In the four years since Sid Watkins' first bestselling book of Formula One memoirs, Life at the Limit, was published the sport has seen enormous changes. The FIA's President, Max Mosley, has launched a zero option policy with the goal of zero mortality and much research and development has gone into technical changes to the cars, circuit design, safety barrier development and personal protection in the cockpit. The Prof has been intimately involved with this work, and discusses it in detail here, but as he knows only too well, uncertainty and unpredictability provide the thrills both the fans and the drivers crave. In Beyond the Limit, Watkins also looks at some of the extraordinary Grands Prix the sport has seen in the last four years, including Schumacher's epic crash at Silverstone in 1999. He also looks back over his twenty or more years in the sport and discusses some of the great drivers he has known. Here, too, is a race-by-race account of the Millenium season offering a completely up-to-date picture of Formula One at the beginning of the 21st century.

Sid Watkins has been involved in Formula One since 1978 and is one of the best-loved figures in the sport. He is also a leading neuro-surgeon.Review:
Strictly for motor racing fans, especially those who bought his best-selling memoirs Life at the Limit four years ago, because the Grand Prix neurosurgeon plunges straight into recollections of major crashes, then memories of the great drivers he has known, and finally a race-by-race account of the Millennium season. Watkins has such broad access to the motor racing fraternity that every section is an insider account, especially when he goes to the aid of Michael Schumacher in the famous 1999 Silverstone crash and recommends a heart bypass operation for Bernie Ecclestone in the same year. Most of the anecdotes are tinged with medical matters, making them all the more unusual and reducing some of the Grand Prix heroes to very basic levels. Covering safety issues as well, the motor racing doctor takes fans on the inside track into aspects and hazards they would never normally know about.
