Many have attempted to tell his story; now it's his turn. Since the 60s when he was known as the brilliant but brash young executive at General Motors, John Zachary DeLorean has been one of the most controversial public figures in the United States and, of recent years, the world. His 64 Lincoln-esque figure and is striking appearance have made him one of the most photographed and recognizable celebrities outside of Hollywood. His only to set foot outside his front door to make headlines. Admirers see DeLorean as the man who stood alone against the corporate rulers on the 14th floor during his tumultuous days at GM, the man who, against all the odds, built his own auto factory in Northern Ireland. Detractors of Deb DeLorean of playboy, and Otto Barron, a man of masks common a Gatsby, an American valiant villain the designation seems endless. Despite all this exposure, the public figure has proved to be a very private man. And whether they praise or condemn, people all ultimately ask the same question: who is the real John DeLorean? The for surrounding his decision to build his own sports car paled in October 1982 when headlines rocked the world and topped every other outrageous statement ever made by the man: John Z DeLorean, captain of a sinking ship, had been arrested and accused of trafficking cocaine! Don't DeLorean was silent during his arrest and subsequent trial. Since his acquittal on all charges in the breakup of his marriage to Christina for rare, he is said little, beyond a few interviews about his conversion to Christianity and some of his immediate views on the government case.

These two books present antithetical views of John DeLorean, the controversial automotive celebrity. DeLorean focuses on the car maker's drug arrest, his acquittal, and his evolution as a born-again Christian. It tells little about the ill-fated sports car. The naivete DeLorean conveys and his simplistic explanations at times seem implausible coming from a man of his stature. Hard Driving is an unflattering picture of DeLorean written by his former public relations director. Haddad presents a lucid picture of DeLorean's convoluted financial dealings and complicated political relationships with the governments of England and Northern Ireland. The DeLorean of Hard Driving is devious, amoral, and a ruthless man. For the auto historian or business student, Haddad's is the more valuable work. Both books have a place in public libraries.
