5.0 out of 5 stars
  
There have been 3 books in my life that were so captivating that putting them down was unthinkable, The Driver just pushed that number to 4. Having been a long time fan of Alex Roy, it was intriguing to read about the details of what has only been rumored until now. Describing his early life, his reasons for following a life of driving, and documenting a truly remarkable accomplishment of the US transcontinental land speed record; this book keeps the reader engaged.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who has ever stared at an open road and wondered what might be possible.
