Review "In The Life: Steve McQueen, Dwight Jon Zimmerman has created a way to know McQueen as much more than the media stereotypical king of cool, whose image is used to sell everything from clothing lines to motorcycles and watches. He reveals a tough kid from a hardscrabble background who worked hard to get where he wanted to go, played hard and took us along for the ride and never lost sight of his own humanity and that of those around him."― UltimateMotorcycling.com "[An] extremely well-written biography."― DeansGarage.com About the Author Dwight Jon Zimmerman is a bestselling and award-winning author and former president of the Military Writers Society of America.
