About the book:

I know this much about racing in the rain. I know it is about balance. It is about anticipation and patience. I know all of the driving skills that are necessary for one to be successful in the rain. But racing in the rain is also about the mind! It is about owning one's own body. About believing that one's car is merely an extension of one's body. About believing that the track is an extension of the car, and the rain is an extension of the track, and the sky is an extension of the rain. It is about believing that you are not you; you are everything. And everything is you.

My name is Enzo. I love watching TV, especially documentaries. I love my name, which I share with the famous Ferrari, although I do not look like him in any way.Though, like him, I love cars. I know everything about them: models, teams, drivers… I was taught all that by Denny. Denny is like a brother to me. He dreams of becoming a professional race car driver but he works like a race car mechanic because he has got me and a family to care about. Although he cannot fully commit himself to the races, he is a true champion, especially in racing in the rain. And, believe me, it is incredibly difficult to drive when it raining cats and dogs. We loved each other from the start, Denny and I. We have been through thick and thin in the years that we spent together. And, yeah, I forgot to tell you one thing. I am Denny’s dog, and this is my story. Witty and touching but, above all, gentle and unique, this is a book that will reveal to you the wonders and absurdities of life and elicit both smiles and tears.
