Praise for MEN AND SPEED:

A BOOK-OF-THE-MONTH CLUB SELECTION

"Eye-opening and provocative...revealing the humanity of these daredevils may be Miller's greatest accomplishment." -- Daytona Beach News-Journal, June 29, 2003.

"One of the strongest narrative sports books since John Feinsteinís classic A Season on the Brink." -- Editorial Board, BOMC, July 30, 2002.

"Thrilling." -- Boston Globe, July 3, 2002.

"An edge-of-your-seat read." -- Providence Journal, June 2, 2002.

"Recommended." -- Library Journal, June 1, 2002.

"Miller's insights into the economic, technological and emotional workings of a top team are fresh and valuable." -- New York Times, May 26, 2002.

"Mesmerizing... The moving stories of bravery, winning, and defeat, and the exploration of the addictive nature of speed make this a must-read: not only for race fans, but for non-enthusiasts who will finally understand once and for all what all the fuss is about." -- Writers Write, The Internet Writing Journal, May 2, 2002.

"A no-B.S. account of a season in NASCAR. Enjoyable, straight-ahead and smart." -- Paul Newman, actor and racer.

"If you're a racing fan and you've often wondered when you look down on pit road or in the garage area what those guys are talking about -- here's your chance to find out. MEN AND SPEED is awesome." -- Benny Parsons, Winston Cup champion and NBC broadcaster.

"New people with new perspectives, new ideas, have joined the throngs at America's superspeedways to take new, fresh looks at NASCAR, the fastest-growing sport on the commercial radar screen. Thankfully, G. Wayne Miller is one of them. He latched a ride through the 2001 season with the Roush Racing team and the result, MEN AND SPEED, tells the late-comers what the noise is all about. Sit down. Buckle up. Take the 288-page ride and kiss the beauty queen at the end. And enjoy." -- Leigh Montville, former Sports Illustrated writer, and author of AT THE ALTAR OF SPEED.

"If you want to learn about NASCAR, talk to the best, Jack Roush! If you want to learn about faster speeds, talk to Jack again! I have flown with Jack in his P-51 Mustang at more than 400 mph. He is as good as they come. And writer Wayne Miller captures the essence of Jack, NASCAR, and speed in his book MEN AND SPEED." -- Gen. Chuck Yeager, subject of Tom Wolfe's THE RIGHT STUFF.

"A title race fans will be talking about for years to come." -- Bob Schaller, StockCarCity.

Praise for Miller's last book, KING OF HEARTS, about another group of daring risk-takers:

"Breathless, spirited and dramatic." -- Mark Bowden, author of Black Hawk Down.

"Gripping." -- Los Angeles Times.

"You'll find yourself surfacing every few chapters to remind yourself it's nonfiction." -- amazon.com
