"Filled with black and white and color photography all throughout, this read of the history of the sport is intriguing and hard to overlook for those curious about the sport and wanting to learn more. The Dawn of Pro Stock is a must for any racing history collections, highly recommended." -The Midwest Book Review, March 2013
"...The text is incisive, including biographies of all the class biggies, and is sprinkled with candids, period ads, magazine outtakes and the various mishaps that passed before Steve's camera. An overdue book, and one you won't want to miss." -Jim Donnelly, Hemmings Muscle Machines, June 2013
"You get a fascinating potted career history of each of about two dozen drivers and teams; however, the real stars of the title are the photographs. The author is a long-time Pro Stock fanatic and even longer-time trackside photographer, and the 300 or so breathtaking color and black-and-white photos in this title are what make it great. They're the main reason you're going to buy this book, but don't worry, it's still a damn good read. -American Car Magazine, June 2013
