    An exhaustive and detailed biography of the late actor. Full of quotes from McQueen and those who knew him best, the author did a lot of research to paint a full picture of the man beyond his celebrity. McQueen drove fast, slept with countless beautiful women and consumed a lot of drugs - but this biography shows that he was much more than all that. Maybe a little longer than it needs to be, this book has me wanting to go on a McQueen film-watching spree.

    While McQueen wasn't the best actor of his generation, he surely was one of the most memorable. His ice-blue glare, his reckless abandon with both automobiles and women, his Aries-fueled 'who gives a flying fuck' attitude. Author Marshall Terrill paints a vivid picture of McQueen through many of his friends, peers, ex-wives, and while at times flourishes like a fan-boy, keeps things moving along as a proper bio should. McQueen went from short-tempered orphan, to Greenwich Village moocher, to TV [...]

    I got this book for my husband for Christmas since he is a huge McQueen fan. In all honesty the only movie I had seen with Steve McQueen in it was The Thomas Crown Affair which I loved and only bits and pieces of Bullitt. So once he was done with reading the book I was quick to snag it to read for myself.Quite interesting. Steve McQueen: Portrait of an American Rebel chronicles his life from childhood to shortly after his untimely death. McQueen, in my mind, started his life as a "punk" - came f [...]

    I bought this at a charity shop just before moving b/c it was huge & looked emminently readable. It lasted me a long time, right through the move, but I finally got sick of it before finishing & exchanged it for another book on a pass-it-on bookshelf at the train station. I just got too tired of him; this bio is "exhaustively" researched & written. It tells you more about SM than you really want to know--or than I did anyway. Interesting guy if you like troubled brooders who struggle [...]

    As a long time Steve McQueen fan I was a bit dubious about picking this book up. I usually stay away from books about actors that I like - more often than not you can come away from a book about your favorite actor disliking them.I found this book to be a real page turner offering insight into Steve McQueen's life. It was honest and revealing but not judgmental. Do I still like Steve McQueen? Absolutely, this is a great book.

    What an interesting book and to read about his struggle with cancer (the same cancer that my father died from) was heartbreaking and touching as well. He was a true fighther in the sense and now i will see all his movies! Love him!

    An enjoyable if imperfect look at the life and death of Steve McQueen, who was at one time the biggest movie star in America before his death at age 50 in 1980.

    While I enjoyed reading the McQueen Roller Coaster I kind of regret it. I had no business dissecting the enigma.
