...others must fail

I thought Aberdeen had broken out in a frenzy of book-buying this evening when I popped into my local Waterstones for a browse and saw queues stretching around the shop. Then I noticed a little old man sitting at a table, it was Sir Jackie Stewart, OBE, three-times F1 World Racing Champion (and expert shot) signing copies of his autobiography, 'Winning Is Not Enough'.

I suppose you have to be fairly small to fit into those racing cars but he seems to have shrunk over the years.  Anyway, there were well over a hundred people queuing to get their books signed and he seemed to have time to chat to each of them. Seemed like a nice guy. A long evening ahead. I got out. I couldn't actually get near the shelves.
