Jeff Gordon’s upcoming first-ever authorized biography, Jeff Gordon: His Dream, Drive & Destiny – http://jeffgordon.com/book.
The 8.5” x 12” fully-illustrated 192-page hardcover book retails for $39.95. The book is a sort of hybrid – it’s a cross between a traditional text only biography and a photo intense coffee table book. It’s over-sized for a biography, fully illustrated with a lot of photos and images of things like his grade school report card, termination letter to Bill Davis Racing, etc., but yet smaller than a full scale coffee table book.
“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, 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. This fully illustrated hardcover biography will allow privileged access to a wealth of exclusive unseen and rare material from Gordon’s personal photo and memorabilia collection. Gordon’s meteoric rise through racing’s ranks is a classic American success story. Readers will find inspiration in Gordon’s candid take on his pivotal life episodes.
