Publisher's Summary

"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.

About the author:

Five-time New York Times best-selling author Joe Garner has become one of the premiere chroniclers of America's popular culture. With his seminal work, We Interrupt This Broadcast, he took publishing by storm, selling nearly 700,000 copies and hitting the New York Times best-seller list in two consecutive years. He has produced several other best sellers. His most recent New York Times and USA Today best seller is 100 Yards of Glory, about the greatest moments in NFL history, with Bob Costas. Gordon and Garner first worked together in 2006 on the multimedia book Speed, Guts & Glory, about landmark moments in NASCAR history.

Great Book, weird performance

The book was a great biography of Jeff, and it was fun to hear where he came from. The reader did a different voice for each person, which is fine when they’re reading fiction, but it’s really weird when they’re real people that you’ve heard speak many times and the impersonations are very inaccurate.

Event crasher!

After listening to this book and loosing interest in nascar. (After the death of dale Earnhardt)This book changed my perspective on jeff Gordon. I would have praised to be in his child hood shoes!

I have witnessed his wins to every nascar race I’ve been to. Hoping that dale Earnhardt would have won instead.

There is no Z in NASCAR.

This is a good a book about Jeff Gordon’s career, but the narrator pronounces NASCAR as NAZCAR throughout the book, and it’s annoying.

The Narrator

The Narrator doesn’t know how to pronounce the name of the sport or other people’s names that are involved with the sport. Little frustrating.

Hard to pause!!

Loved the book. Couldn't stop listening. I am a huge Jeff Gordon fan and this was well written and performed. Brought back many great memories of his career. Highly recommend for other real NASCAR fans.

I am now a Gordon fan

I never really liked Gordon growing up watching him race since his 1st race as a child mainly because he won all the time and my driver, Rick Mast, who never won a cup race had my full attention. This book really made me a Gordon fan from all his off track work with kids and caring for other drivers off track as well. Great guy. I wish I knew all this growing up watching him so I could have been a Gordon fan but better late than never. Great book!

Great read for any racing fan

Great listen/read. Any race fan will love listening to Jeff's story of how he came up thru open wheel racing to Nascar.
