Steve McQueen: A Tribute to the King of Cool, tells the actor''s story in chronological order through the eyes of those who knew him best: family, friends, co-stars, business associates, acquaintances and adoring fans from around the globe. Written in passage form, each person brings a different view to the man and legend, presenting him in an unsurpassed 360-degree perspective. ''It''s unique in its presentation because it reads like a biography, but it''s really a photo and tribute book'', Terrill said, who has spent nearly three years compiling the information. There''s really nothing else on the market quite like it. ''I know it will please McQueen fans''. Accompanying the 200 passages are hundreds of photos taken of McQueen throughout his life and movie career, many seen here for the first time, as well as personal items, documents and movie memorabilia. The book will also include a foreword by Barbara McQueen, a Steve McQueen family tree, quotes by several Hollywood luminaries.

From the Publisher:
Tells Steve McQueen's story in chronological order through the eyes of those who knew him best: family, friends, co-stars, business associates, acquaintances and adoring fans from around the globe. In this title, each person brings a different view to the man and legend, presenting him in an unsurpassed 360-degree perspective.
Annotation:
In a second biography that builds on his 1993 book (STEVE MCQUEEN: PORTRAIT OF AN AMERICAN REBEL), the author draws on new research that has allowed him to deepen his understanding of the early childhood traumas that devastated the young McQueen and haunted him throughout his turbulent life. McQueen's extraordinary career--he turned heads at the Actor's Studio in New York, where he learned his craft, earned high praise for his Broadway debut, secured a successful TV series, and displayed the charismatic "cool" that became his signature in such films as THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN, THE GREAT ESCAPE, AND BULLITT--never seems to have erased the personal turmoil and unhappiness that marked him from the beginning.
