“I purposely waited until I retired from driving so the book would encompass my entire career,” says Jeff Gordon. “People are going to be able to read about me like they’ve never read about me before.”
The first-ever authorized biography of Jeff Gordon, the four-time champion racing legend. For over a year, Garner interviewed and observed Gordon at races, at special events, and at home. The book is based on extensive interviews with Gordon as well as in-depth interviews with dozens of family members, friends, competitors, and colleagues, some of whom have never gone on the record before. Jeff speaks candidly, sometimes brutally so, about his childhood, his much publicized divorce, those he competed against, his family, and life after racing. Gordon’s meteoric rise through racing’s ranks is a classic American success story. Listeners will find inspiration in Gordon’s candid take on his pivotal life episodes.
