DON'T get this book if you are looking for a "life story" about his childhood or a biography about Dale's life after losing his dad. Although he touches on it in the Epilogue, this is a book about Dale JR, not SR and as Jr says in the beginning, that book may be coming years down the road.
I'm proud to be a fan of one of NASCAR's rising stars and this book will make the upcoming 2002 season all the more enjoyable.
I know, like any race fan, that Earhardt Jr. has a real talent for racing. This book proves that his talents reach far beyond the racetrack (not that I ever though otherwise), as well. Opening himself up and sometimes showing a different side, this book gave me a real idea of how he feels. This is a must own for any Jr. fan, or maybe just anyone who enjoys a little something different. One caution, if you are looking for a real in depth view of his life outside and before NASCAR, this isn't it. But don't let that fool you about how much it shows.
