"In the 1960's, Steve McQueen was, according to box office receipts, the biggest movie star of his generation and one of the coolest men ever to walk the planet. Greg Laurie was a teen at the time and an ardent fan of the King of Cool. Like millions of cinema fans, Greg developed a lifelong fascination with the actor. Now he has a chance to tell McQueen's story. In this book, Laurie thoughtfully interviews members of McQueen's family and his friends, costars, associates, widow, and pastor to tell of his dramatic life change in the spring of 1979 - six months before he was diagnosed with terminal cancer. Join Greg as he takes a cross-country drive in his 1968 Highland Green Ford Mustang 390 GT and retraces the wooly geography of the actor's life, relationships, career, and - ultimately - his spiritual journey." --

Some interesting things that I did not know such as Steve McQueen had an invitation by Jay Sebring to visit Sharon Tate's house for a party the night the Manson family paid a visit. Luckily he did not go. Good interviews with people who know McQueen. I especially like the interview with Mamie Van Doren.

My only real criticism of the book is that the author wrote it because he thought were similarities between his life and the life of McQueen such as being abandoned by their fathers, having an interest in sports cars and eventually becoming born again Christians. I am interested in the life of Steve McQueen. The author's life? Not so much.
