In the book LONG KISS, I found a "kindred spirit". We both live in Texas and LOVE the Indianapolis 500. The author just happened to grow up in Texas and this reader grew up in INDY. The book is a mix of personal catharsis, self-therapy, passion, adventure, exploration and love for the best in motorsports. Sometimes I wanted to hear more, and sometimes I wanted to hear less, but YOU should read the book for your own interpretation. The two parts I loved the most (which are throughout the book) are all these great first-hand experiences with "racing personalities" and what I call behind the scene stories related to the INDY 500. Good grief! I lived in Indianapolis from 1958-1973 and missed so much of the greatest spectacle in racing, and I thank the author for these great stories! The second part is the author's rediscovery of himself. His journey to multiple race events paralleled multiple journeys in his personal growth. He had mental, physical, and spiritual challenges and has come out a winner like one who has won a race. But as the author and I know, we are in a bigger race. We may need some pit stops along the way, but we will be victorious!

Indy 500 Book tell a story that a goodly number of folks can relate too. But it tends to ramble a lot. Not a bad read, worth the price for a die-hard Indy 500 fan.

It's not often I read a book that can move me to tears just about every time I pick it up, but this is one of them - and that's a good thing! It's a perfect summary of the sense of community, friendship and love that holds the IndyCar paddock together, from the perspective of a devout racing fan. The raw emotion that comes with being involved in racing, in any capacity, is so strong that anyone who knows what it feels like will find it fairly leaps off the page, and anyone who hasn't experienced it will likely find it irresistably intriguing.

What's more, I rarely read a book that makes me pause, re-read a sentence or paragraph, and think "...I am so glad I'm not the only person who feels this way." But, I found myself doing that time and time again with this book - and not just about the racing! The non-racing situations I'm referring to, I wouldn't wish upon anyone, but it's so reassuring to read and know I'm not alone.

I am very happy to see the names and stories of so many kind, caring, loving people who are passionate about the sport mentioned in this book, and I am utterly pleased to consider the author, a fellow racing fan, a dear friend.
