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.
The first-ever authorized biography, Jeff Gordon: His Dream, Drive & Destiny is being written by Joe Garner, the five-time New York Times bestselling author.
Garner was given unprecedented access. “What truly impressed me in the making of this book is the time Jeff invested. There are so many books with very little time invested by the drivers, but Jeff gave me unparalleled access at the race track, at special events – and at his home – over the past 15 months,” says Garner.
The book is based on those 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.
“He put nothing off-limits and encouraged the people to speak honestly,” says Garner. “And 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 192-page 8.5”x12” hardcover biography will allow privileged access to a wealth of exclusive unseen and rare material from Gordon’s personal photo and memorabilia collection.
Jeff Gordon: His Dream, Drive & Destiny is scheduled to be released on October 18th, 2016.
This book has been and continues to be a very special project for Jeff that provides the opportunity to open up about his personal life on and off the track, as well as pay tribute to those who have supported him.
