Dangerous Curves : Edition 2
by Terri O'Connell




Overview -
Dangerous Curves: The Terri O'Connell Story - More Than a Race, has been called a Great American Story, the New Benchmark for autobiographies and the best thing to come across their desk by some of the key actors in sports, literary and movies including Oscar, Grammy and Emmy winner, George Johnsen. O'Connell has been tagged as the "Female Rocky" and a compelling first in history trailblazer. Her against all odds life chronicled in this compelling and dynamic memoir is a life story that truly embodies life lessons for virtually anyone who is having to overcome insurmountable obstacles, no matter what they might be. She truly is a fearless, courageous and talented race driver, engineer, artist, author and more importantly, human being. Set in the old school deep south throughout the seventies that quickly transitions to an international story on into today where O'Connell traveled America burning up race tracks - winning national championships and over 500 races that ultimately led her to NASCAR's top series "Cup" in the midst of an emotional roller coaster that virtually took her life time and time again while fighting complicated biological issues and high spirited politics in her sport of auto racing, and her hometown. High spirited family dynamics, southern bigotry and sexism embodied by a thirst for fame and glory on the track, but more so, the need to fix the devastating biological issue that was destroying her life, Terri O's careening life had her pinned up against the most insurmountable odds, that she would ultimately, after years of hurt and heartache, over come. The story is scattered with famous racers, Hollywood elite, crooked politicians and a life story like no other in world history. From a small southern town, to the high banks of NASCAR, to surviving ill fated racing crashes and horrible suicide attempts, onward to fame and beauty in Hollywood with her modeling and one of a kind art ... then to astonishingly resurrect her racing career when no one said it was possible, makes Terri O'Connell a unique renaissance woman geared to always get up off the mat, and as a notable motorsports promoter said about her on 20/20 ABC, prove she is one of the five best racers in America, as she has time and time again. This 5.6, 119 pound, 34-25-34 Stevie Nicks look-a-like badass continues to beat the odds, to strive for bigger, higher and harder goals and this latest version of her memoir is a barn burner that leaves no page un-turned. As sports psychologist professor Kevin L. Burke tells, It's frank, controversial, brave and leaves the reader angry, happy ... sickened and elated while being book ended with a full range of emotions that most everyone could learn from. So buckle up, get ready for the ride of your life with this page turner, because as Terri O' says, #TimesUp ... it's time to for everyone to find their inter Dangerous Curves, to never let courage elude. Roger Brehm, Principle, Producer - Cinema Vitesse Productions LLC Go fast, turn left, and read this book If you love racing, and you can stand the truth, this one's for you. --Lucian K. Truscott IV, New York Times Best Selling Author ("Dress Grey"), Novelist, Journalist, Heir to President Thomas Jefferson, Motorsports Historian-Aficionado, Member Monticello Association, Graduate United States Military Academy
