What did they say about the book?

"Discovering we shared a forename, I also found we shared a similar sense of humour and, in truth, I saw a little bit of me in Patrik when I was his age. The intent of Formula Student is not to build race cars, but to finish off the education of young engineers with a complex and interesting design challenge. Patrik is proof of how well that scheme works, having emerged as a smart, diligent and I undoubtedly, successful engineer and this book is proof. I am proud to have been a small part of that and wish him well in the future."

Pat Clark Chief Design Judge Formula Student Germany

"This book unveils a complex look into the entire Formula Student world. If you are new to the competition or even just think about joining it, this book is basically a guide for your success. On the other hand I think it can be inspirational for experienced teams as well."

Josef Jelínek - Formula Student team member and driver.

"The book is written both with devotion and enthusiasm. Some advices in the book made me think a lot about how efficiently I work and I should definitely give some of them a try (e.g. an effective e-mail communication). I cannot but totally agree with majority of Patrik’s opinions. I would not be able to write them down in a comprehensible way so I am glad he managed to do so. When I was reading the book I sometimes felt like someone tells me this story rather than I read it by myself. I can imagine any team leader would take it and can give a presentation to a group of rookie members (including really good jokes) right away. I am really glad such a book has been written and that Patrik managed to publish it after all. I wish this book many readers who find it helpful. Hopefully, another books covering the rest of the season will come in a near future."
