Top Fuel For Life: Life Lessons From A Crew Chief Reviews
Jim's book is an insightful peek into his childhood, his career, the Kalitta family and the drag racing community but it turns into a love story that most people can learn from. Having grown up in a working class, drag racing family and working with my own Father in the family business I could relate to so many things that Jim wrote about. Having lost a loved one myself I found myself overwhelmed with with emotion over and over again and actually had to put the book down a few times to keep from crying.
I wasn't really expecting it, but this turned into a book I couldn't hardly put down. It really shows you just what is important in life. Anyone that has ever put their career ahead of family should read this! Thanks so much Jim O for the great read and a little insight of what it's like working at Kalitta Motorsports!
I've been a drag racing fan for years, go to at least 3 races every year. This book was so different then I expected but boy it was a great book. It's the true meaning what life is about. Actually bought a book at Vegas races this weekend & had Jim O sign it. He wrote a beautiful little message inside for my husband & I.
This really is a good read. Please don't think you are buying a book about how to tune a Top Fuel dragster from one of the best. This book tells the story of life, love and loss with the facets of a dragster as a point for comparison. It's very well written, the observations are sharp and the lessons shared are many. Very enjoyable, hard to put down!
I our cashed this for my husband for Valentines Day & it did not disappoint!
If you like cars, racing or just like to read, this is a wonderful book. My husband does not read, but loves anything drag racing. He couldn't put this book down. Read it cover to cover and loved it. Thank you Jim Oberhofer!!!
The straight dope from Jim O.
What a great book,it should be required reading for anyone who has ever put their job, their hobby or their self ahead of the ones they love (that should cover about everyone)!!! Just consider it an opportunity to realize what's important and what's not...
