Publisher's Summary

The Phenomenal Sunday Times Number-One Best Seller.
"It was the start of the third lap of the 2010 Senior TT, the last race of the fortnight. The last chance to get a TT win for another year, and I was pushing hard. Ballagarey. The kind of corner that makes me continue road racing. A proper man's corner. You go through the right-hander at something like 170 miles per hour, leant right over, eyes fixed as far down the road as I can see. But this time something happened. This time the front end tucked...."
Guy Martin, international road-racing legend, maverick star of the Isle of Man TT, truck mechanic, and TV presenter lives on the edge, addicted to speed, thoroughly exhilarated by danger.
In this book we'll get inside his head as he stares death in the face and risks his life in search of the next high.
We'll discover what it feels like to survive a 170 mile per hour fireball at the TT in 2010 and come back to do it all again. He'll sweep us up in a gritty sort of glory as he slogs it out for a place on the podium, but we'll also see him struggle with the flipside of fame. We'll meet his friends and foes, his family, his teammates and bosses, and we'll discover what motivates him and where his strengths and weaknesses lie.
For the first time, here is the full story in Guy's own words, from the boy who learned to prep bikes with his dad to the spirited team mechanic paying his way by collecting beer glasses in pubs to the young racer at the start of his first race and the buzz he's been chasing ever since.
This thrilling autobiography is an intense and dramatic ride.

Fascinating

This book surprised me, honest and blunt but a fascinating insight into the life of a TT racer and a lot more beside. Guy Martin is the sort of bloke you'd love to sit down and have a cup of tea with.

Very good

I'd listen to this in my one our morning 10 mike bike ride. One Sunday I was enjoying the book so much I went around again for another 10 miles just so I could carry on listening.
