Edelstein's gripping biography thrillingly recreates the life of this American legend, from his days as a teenage moonshine runner in Virginia, through millions earned (and just as quickly spent) in fearless finance deals, to his incredible comeback after four years of being banned from the NASCAR circuit.

"A well-researched, thoroughly enjoyable account of the life of this NASCAR pioneer and iconoclast." (Booklist)
"[The author] draws on concrete sourcing based on Turner's personal files to give the book depth and perspective." (Publishers Weekly)
"[Edelstein's] impeccable biography of Turner, Full Throttle, kicks up dirt on NASCAR's juiced-up early days." (New York Times)
If you are a NASCAR fan or if you just like a great story than this is worth the download. Narration could not be any better for the tone of the book.
Curtis Turner was outrageous! He lived his life to the fullest with no fear, and drove the way he lived. From the early days of running from the law, to the dirt tracks, to the super speedways, Curtis was the ultimate competitor. It is a must read for anyone with interest in the history of NASCAR, but would appeal to a much wider audience. The reader's voice is perfect for the book.
