It’s the first autobiography of a sportsman I can remember reading in years – the last was probably Lance Armstrong’s It’s Not About The Bike (possibly subtitled "It’s About The Drugs, Actually" after the last few years’ revelations). Similar to Armstrong, Martin isn’t painted to appear like a very likeable person, but there’s a lot more to laugh about here.

Like the great Brewer’s Rogues, Villains & Eccentrics, the index is itself a joy to read, with "paper round, 43" following straight after "orgy, invitation to, 79-80". The ‘orgy’, such as it was, turns out not to be some Roman affair was mass nudity and orgiastic revels, but consists of ‘Dave’ and his girlfriend enjoying themselves while Guy Martin is "sat in the buff, except my socks, on the wheel arch in the back of a Transit van eating a Mars Bar", contentedly watching. The sheer prosaic absurdity (along with the overcapitalisation of Guy’s snack) means it’s not even tawdry, although between Guy Martin and the ever-repeated rumour about Marianne Faithfull, I can’t ever eat a Mars bar again within thinking it’s a bit too erotic, thank you very much.

Then there’s the description of the Ulster race, where Guy lists every corner in incredible detail, pausing at one point to explain that the place called The Hole In The Wall is named thusly because "there’s a wall with a hole in it." Well, I guffawed. I’m not sure if this was intentional, or if Guy was just worried some people wouldn’t be able to distinguish metaphor from reality.

The persona that is projected is of a bluff Northern type, opinionated and sure that he’s right about everything.

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!

Guy is the real deal. Genuine down to earth person who has written an honest and interesting account of his life. he has thrown himself into all sorts over the years - often at great speeds! Worth a read.
