Winning: The Racing Life of Paul Newman
Fans of Paul Newman's legendary performances on the silver screen may not be aware that he was also a legend on the racetrack. Following his passing in September 2008, the time was right for Winning: The Racing Life of Paul Newman, a book which takes its title from the 1968 film in which Newman starred. Written by Motor Trend editor Matt Stone and freelance automotive journalist Preston Lerner, Winning chronicles a Hollywood icon's love affair with racing. From victories behind the wheel to the trials of team ownership, Winning captures Newman as friends and rivals alike saw him: a devoted gentleman racer with an acting job on the side.
