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)

Review:

This assiduous biography is particularly straight-dealing about the Newman-Joanne Woodward union.
-- The Sunday Times, October, 2010

Shawn Levy writes slick, snappy biographies.... This book on Newman is well-made and easy to read.
-- The Evening Standard, October 14, 2010

The late Paul Newman is served well by this comprehensive biography.
-- The Telegraph, October 16, 2010

'...it's terrific... A great big chunky book that tells you everything you could want to know about the screen legend' --Tim Vine in The Daily Express, December 2010

`Levy's engrossing biography does ample justice to its multi-faceted subject'
--Good Book Guide, Jan 2011
