Passion is the fuel
15 July 2015 | by See all my reviews

Paul Newman, known and beloved as a Movie Star, was yet humble and as "down to earth" as anyone in that strata can be. Yet he discovered relatively late in life a passion for driving and racing cars. At an age when most all top drivers are retired, he began. Instant miraculous success did not happen, and his beginning was the slow laborious process it is for non-prodigies (though aided by focus). But he had that special fuel, passion, and he used that fuel to power himself to success on large stages in the world of motorsport. This is his story. Thanks to Adam Carolla, you can share the ride, along with some great contemporaries. Highly recommended.
