Paul Leonard Newman was a true Renaissance man who is known worldwide for his performances as an actor and director. His career in the entertainment industry stretched over 50 years, as did his marriage to Joanne Woodward—an unusual and notable achievement in Hollywood. Newman was also a talented race car driver, an influential political activist, a savvy businessman, and a passionate philanthropist who created a food company that has donated more than $280 million to charities. But Newman also suffered many defeats throughout his life; he was human, just as we all are.
This biography provides a chronological narrative that documents Newman's long life and myriad contributions. Information regarding his early years in Ohio, his service in the U.S. Navy during World War II, his success on the stage and screen, his work with charities and business ventures, and his exploits in auto racing is provided.

"He's always been utterly unpretentious and sane," said Hollywood star Warren Beatty of Paul Newman. "Once you've seen your face on a bottle of salad dressing, it's hard to take yourself seriously," Newman himself explained. He did take some things in earnest though, based on this statement: "If you don't have enemies, you don't have character."
