About this title


The complete yet never told story of James Dean’s passion for professional racing, his cars and races, within the context of his life, the many celebrities he befriended and his stunning Hollywood success before his tragic death at 24. The book also details his fatal accident almost “frame-by-frame”, based on police reports, witness testimonies and the author’s own analysis. Published during the 50th year anniversary of his death.

In 1998, he wrote a historical racing book titled “Watkins Glen 1948-1952 – The Definitive Illustrated History.” The book earned many awards and extraordinary reviews.
