Where did you get it? Amazon.co.uk (where I ordered mine) says it won't be released until tomorrow. I can't wait. Of course it will take several days to get here. I think they should loan me the Kindle version until mine gets here :)

I found a single copy of it in WH Smiths and when I went to Waterstones, they didn't have it so I went back to WH Smiths. Loving it so far and still only a couple of chapters in and some lovely pics :D

I could have gotten the Kindle version in the USA yesterday for cheaper than I will get the real book from the UK in a week or so. But I figured the pictures would make it worth the wait.

Deffo the pictures are awesome and more personal ones than I would have expected knowing how Casey is regarding his privacy

I am cautiously optimistic about this book. But with him being so private I wonder if it will just stick to the details about his racing and not get as much in to how and why things happened. I have always been curious about what his sister did while Casey and his parents moved off to England. I always figured she went with them, but in documentaries about Casey that shows footage from that time I never see Kell or hear her mentioned. I have often wondered if that ever caused any issues in the family (like Kell feeling Casey got all of the attention).

Speaking of Kell, she put out a CD back around 2007/2008 and the music was used in some documentary about Casey (I think when he won Young Australian of the Year). I actually ordered it from Australia a few years back and it is quite good if you like that type of music. I think she is really in to the arts (mainly dancing and music). These days I heard she lives in the small town of Bellingen, NSW.

Ok, then he does talk quite extensively about Kel and also about how she stayed behind. There is also quite a bit more than I expected on his relationship with Adriana given his desire for his private life to be private. Some lovely photos also of when he was younger, with Adriana and Ally

Thanks!! Great stuff. That ABC interview was one of the best I have seen. Casey seems so much more relaxed now.

Must admit, I have loved these last few interviews I have seen and I am loving seeing him so much more relaxed and happy. There definitely seems to be a sparkle back in his eyes which is lovely to see :D

He talks about how he is somewhat waiting for or looking forward to his popularity to die down. Although I am happy he is still someone in the public eye and is somewhat active on twitter, I don't think continuing to tweet and do interviews is a good way to slip out of the public eye. I am sure he is now just promoting his book. With him out of V8 racing and his book release behind him, I have a feeling we won't hear much from Casey next year.

Thanks for those links Marg. Was wondering when that Youtube clip would turn up. Really good one with Paul as well. You're spoiling us rotten today. Thankyou :D
