Jeff Gordon: His Dream, Drive & Destiny is a New York Times best seller!
âPeople are going to be able to read about me like theyâve never read about me before.âÂ says Jeff Gordon.Â
âWe reveal some things that are definitely a little controversial, whether it be my divorce or talking about my parentsâ separation, as well as the relationship between Jimmie Johnson and I. Although Iâm a huge supporter of his and friend of his, how that has been challenged over time, as well as the separation with Ray Evernham when he left the team. It hasnât always been great, perfect and happy times. It was tough to tell myself that if Iâm going to write a book, I want it to be done in a way that shows who I truly am and the things I went through and not hold back. I think Joe Garner did an excellent job of pulling that out of me, although it was hard at times.âÂ
