This review is from: Mickey Thompson: The Fast Life and Tragic Death of a Racing Legend (Hardcover)
I loved how this story works: It's a biography of one of the most interesting figures in racing history bookended with a gripping murder mystery. The story of Mickey Thompson is so wild, it's hard to believe it's true. Sometimes funny, sometimes sad, always wild, the story moves along just as Mickey himself would've liked it: fast. The book has cool photos and the research is really in depth. The author talked to all of Mickey's family and friends and gets the real inside scoop. In the end, Mickey Thompson comes off like a guy you wish you knew. This book is awesome. After finishing it, I bought another copy for my dad.
