Steve McQueen and Speed reflects a life lived in the moment and with the pedal to the metal. and I would certainly recommend this book to any fans of Steve. The quality is very good - its not a large book, about average, but the overall feel is very good and the selection and quality of the photography is also of a high standard. I do get fed up sometimes of seeing the same old photo's being used from book to book but I would say this is an exception with some that even I have not come across before.

To an American reader a book written from a foreigner’s perspective about a quintessential American icon is often as revealing as it is disconcerting-the two being different sides of the same coin. Different cultural reference points really do make for differently nuanced perspective and assessment. I’m not sure whether I’m an actor who races or a racer who acts. Political attache in the French Parliament, FREDERIC BRUN is above all a movie lover, and a true James Bond fan. Motorbooks International.

Even 30 years after his death, Steve McQueen remains an icon of cool. Now comes this volume featuring rare photography and chronicling McQueen's fascination with and passion for all things internal-combustion powered.

This was a gift for my brother and he loved it! He was very impressed with the quality of the book. It also arrived quickly and in perfect condition.
Fegelv
A good book to understand what drove Steve to race.
Cordanius

Runemane
Very happy

Not being the world's ultimate Steve McQueen fan I did not purchase this book. I got my copy at the library. A good way to spend two hours on a Sunday night. The text is good. Not too much and not overwhelming. The photos are quite good. Especially for those who are big fans of the man as a racer or motorcycle rider. A lot of very candid photos that stars today would probably not allow to be shot. Life was so much more simple then. Fun shots of McQueen and first wife, Neile. I had forgotten about her. Great shots of his great cars and fantastic bikes. I did find myself salivating and coveting somewhat. McQueen was a man's man in a time when this was expected. He played the part well, as demonstrated by this book. On the screen and off. Worth your time if you are a real McQueen fan. Book is well put together and photos are very good.

I am a big Steve McQueen and buy every book released on him. I got this for Christmas but this book was disappointing though. Just another collection of images. I had seen them all before.

There were too many classic, but too familiar, photos by famous photographers repeated in other books. If you want proof have a look at the photo credits, all photos are licensed from the usual and same old sources e.g. Getty images, Library of Congress, MPTV... basically all the usual sources where these images are all available, have been used many times already and not "unseen" or new.

Also the book was advertised about his racing and passion for speed. But there was a whole section of just stills of McQueen posing with nothing to do with racing at all. Such as publicity shots for Thomas Crown Affair of him in a formal suit. It made no sense to include these.

The text was very brief, just a few pages for each of the 5 chapters and nothing new. So it's just really a collection of images. So many books appear on the market for Steve McQueen where all the author has done is repeat photos already seen. The same is true here unfortunately. There is no skill in doing this, its lazy workmanship to just repeat already well-known images. People deserve something original.

2 stars because if you know little about McQueen then its fine, but for a fan of McQueen it is nothing new. Not a terrible book in some ways, just nothing new or interesting. As a fan it would be good to see some fresh images and some fresh insights.
Especially interesting because book is written from a foreigner's perspective (French) of a quintessential American icon. Explores McQueen's personality, i.e. its weaknesses, as the impetus for his need to "prove something." Describes his private interests in racing, car/motorcycle collection, and on-screen use of vehicles. Strength of book lies in the candid personal photos, quite a few of which not previously seen.
