July 03, 2013
The following is an industry press release...
Encinitas, CA - June 25, 2013 - It's
true: Malcolm Smith, perhaps the most well-known and accomplished
motorcyclist on the planet, is finally telling his story - all of it.
From his childhood in Canada and southern California, to his first
motorcycles and racing exploits, to his legendary ISDT run and the
classic documentary On Any Sunday, to his Baja and African
rally achievements, to his successful businesses and charity work, and
to his family and many friends all over the world, Malcolm! An Autobiography is the story of Malcolm Smith.
"It's been a long time coming, but it's finally time to do it. The
timing seems right, too. I just turned 72, I'm slowing down a little,
I'm spending more time with my family, and I've got more perspective
than ever... So here we go! I'm sure you'll love reading it as much as I
enjoyed writing it."
- Malcolm Smith
This large-format (11x11-in.), 300-plus page, hardbound coffee-table
book will feature more than simply Malcolm's life story. In it you'll
find hundreds of photographs from Malcolm's private archives, many of
which have never been seen by the public, let alone published. For the
book, Malcolm teamed up with veteran moto-journalist and racer Mitch
Boehm, who's worked at Motorcyclist, Cycle World and American Honda during his career.
Malcolm! An Autobiography is set to release in December, but you can pre-order your copy now. And if you do, you'll get a very special bonus: Malcolm's signature. That's right: Order now at www.TheMalcolmBook.com and Malcolm Smith will personally sign your copy!
Whether the book is for you or a gift for that special motorcyclist,
it's something that will be read over and over - and cherished - for
years to come.
