Very interesting & hearwarming but the reader does not know how to pronounce some common names in Nascar.
usually read more self help and motivational books and dont write reviews. but i was always been a earnhardt and this is a good book.
I liked this book. I am a big race fan and I enjoyed hearing the story behind the man.
Finally the true story of the Intimidator!!! Being a fan still I was happy that his story was told the right way. Way to go. I would recommend this book to anyone who is a Nascar fan. Way to go.
Interesting look at the beginning of present day NASCAR racing. Jumps around a little, tough to keep a timeline clear, and skips some major events. But its a good read, an interesting book.
Growing up in the South, NASCAR was a part of my life. No one was more shocked than I that it became THE sport of champions and high ratings. When it came across the internet that Earnhardt had died, I called home and my mother started wailing. My Daddy never cared for what he termed Earnhardt's "dirty racing." The book alludes to this. Dirty or not, the man was a force to be reckoned with. This book outlines what we Southerners always knew, that you had to be born into the sport. Even that didn't guarantee a winner. But the Earnhardts are winners. Junior, Dale's son, lives the tradition of Dale's father, wearing #12. Count on this book to be a quick, enjoyable read.
I was such a fan of Earnhardt that I lost interest in NASCAR when he died. I wanted to listen to this cd to learn about his early career. Racing was his life's passion. A true champion.
I love hearing biographies and this one definitely delivers. Every life has its challenges and triumphs and hearing others is always inspirational for me. Give it a listen you will like it!
Provides good insight into the emerging world of NASCAR from its roots to present day sucess. Includes lots of anecdotal information about NASCAR that is very amusing.
