Synopsis: 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.

About the Author: Philippe Defechereux is a former automotive advertising executive with great passion and experience about cars and racing. On the occasion of James Dean?s 40th anniversary, he published a short version of James Dean?s racing career and fatal accident published in French and Dutch with 40,000 copies sold to-date. 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. Philippe Defechereux also writes frequent articles for car magazines. He has appeared many times on television and done radio interviews; he will be available for such after the book launch.
