Journalist Julian Guthrie, who wrote The Billionaire and the Mechanic, the best-selling account of Larry Ellison's unlikely partnership with a car mechanic during his pursuit of the America's Cup, is tackling the XPrize for her next book, The Hollywood Reporter reports.
Penguin Press has acquired "Beyond: Peter Diamandis and the Adventure of Space" in a preemptive bid. Publication is expected in fall 2016.

..."Beyond" will tell Diamandis' story — from space-obsessed kid to space-travel visionary — as well as those of the "misfit band of innovators, hackers, geniuses, billionaires (Paul Allen, Richard Branson, among others), chemists, and aviation legends" who joined him. Guthrie is also positioning it as a story "about taking risks in a risk-averse society, and the education of a great American innovator."

To promote the book, a six-figure prize will be given to the individual or team who sells the most copies of "Beyond" (a la the original XPrize).
