WINNING IN REVERSE Defying the Odds and Achieving Dreams: The Bill Lester Story

by | Read by Cary Hite, Bill Lester

Biography & Memoir • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Race car driver Bill Lester details his life growing up with a need for speed. His audiobook offers an interesting perspective for racing fans without getting too technical about the sport. Lester took a unique route to fame: One of the few African-American race car drivers, he first became an engineer but disliked desk-job life, so he returned to his passion, racing. Narrator Cary Hite brings appropriate emotions, giving Lester's words the meaning he intends. Hite is steady and clear as he describes Lester's life. And his narration ranges appropriately when the situation calls for it--for example, in scenes involving a disappointed mom, a contrite son, and a reckless accident or the frustration that comes with encountering racism in the sport. On occasion he will imitate accents, such as the Southern drawls of team members. M.B. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2021]
