Product Description

Book Description

This is the story of life at the centre of the world's most dangerous sport, by its brightest and biggest star.

Product Description

'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 170mph, 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 170mph 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.

I must admit I have been a fan of Guy for some years, therefore couldn't wait to see the world from Guys perspective.

The book truly is an honest and open account from a chap that doesn't really seem to care about how he is perceived by other people.

It blends the details of motorcycle racing with the bizarreness of Guys life perfectly. If you think that this book is purely for motorcycle enthusiasts then I would think again. Guys unique life and the way he tells it are by far the most interesting parts of the book. Throw in the corner by corner recollections of guys racing career and you have a thoroughly enjoyable read.

You won't be disappointed when you enter the weird and wonderful world that is Guy Martins life!
