Sintesi dell'editore

Curtis Turner, the most dynamic stock-car racer of all time, wrote the book on living fast and dying young. As the first NASCAR celebrity, his life embodied all that made NASCAR a hit spectator sport: the adrenaline rush of the races; the potential for danger at every turn; and the charismatic, outrageous personality of a winner. He created drama at the racetrack and in his personal life, living the American Dream several times over before he died a violent and mysterious death at the age of 46.

Edelstein's gripping biography thrillingly recreates the life of this American legend, from his days as a teenage moonshine runner in Virginia, through millions earned (and just as quickly spent) in fearless finance deals, to his incredible comeback after four years of being banned from the NASCAR circuit.

Great Story & Great Narration

If you are a NASCAR fan or if you just like a great story than this is worth the download. Narration could not be any better for the tone of the book.

Great Story

Curtis Turner was outrageous! He lived his life to the fullest with no fear, and drove the way he lived. From the early days of running from the law, to the dirt tracks, to the super speedways, Curtis was the ultimate competitor. It is a must read for anyone with interest in the history of NASCAR, but would appeal to a much wider audience. The reader's voice is perfect for the book.

Excellent story of a man before my time

I was 3 years old when Curtis Turner died and I only became a “motor head” in the last five years. I wish I would have been around in the early days of stock car racing. It sounds far more fascinating than what I no longer can watch in NASCAR. His story is absolutely exhilarating and he squeezed every ounce of life he could out of his 46 years. Definitely worth the read and the narrator is perfect!

Great book, excellent narrator

I'm 35 and I followed NASCAR my whole life but I had no idea what all was going on behind the scenes in those days. It is so great to get the information together and hear all the stories of the old days. I loved it and I'm glad I now know who Curtis Turner was. It reminds me of stories my dad would tell about his youth.
