consistent inconsistency

how to build a car - adrian newey


I think I may have got this book as a present. Or maybe I bought it for someone else and then also wanted it for myself. Either way, I got it a few years ago and tried to read it once. I don't know why I stopped; I was enjoying it then, and I enjoyed it properly this time around.

I'm pretty damn jealous of Adrian Newey! He seems to have had an incredible life of doing what he loves all over the globe with some incredible people. His is also obviously very good at what he does, and has shown his worth at the top level of a very competitive sport.

I've always loved the idea of being part of a small, scrappy team doing something competitive. I think I might value my personal time too much for it though. Although I guess if part of it was for me, I wouldn't mind working on it so much.

The book has some really great tales of triumph and solving complex technical problems. I'd like to do more of that.
