Sunday Money: Speed! Lust! Madness! Death! a Hot Lap Around America with NASCAR
by Jeff Macgregor, a review from Boldtype by Nick Parish.
"[M]ore than offering race descriptions, anecdotes, or driver hijinks, more than recounting life in the NASCAR tent cities or parking lots of Wal-Marts, MacGregor examines the sport's commercial machine ? the squadrons of flacks regulating image, the promotional juggernaut packing logos and endorsements into sports columns and TV highlights. Incorporating an analysis of consumerism into his book, MacGregor shows NASCAR as larger than the sport and its myth." Read the entire Boldtype review.
