The star of nearly sixty movies and the recipient of dozens of acting awards, Paul Newman was much more than a Hollywood icon. He was an accomplished director, an avid race-car driver, a groundbreaking entrepreneur and a committed philanthropist. He was a caring husband and father of six who also had a darker side. In the first biography of Newman in decades, Shawn Levy honors and remembers the man behind the icon. (Bestseller)
