When I read Davison's book I thought " Great photos, but there's a need for a really good, well-written biography of Joey".
There still is. Nice photos though.

I was creating an official website for Joey Dunlop, and Mac McDiarmid's book gave a real insight into Joey's early days with stories from his friends and family. Over 50000 people went to Joey's funeral, such was the popularity of this ordinary guy from Ballymoney. A fascinating read and a must for the bookshelf for fans of real road-racing.

Easily the best of the books on your man Joey so far. Most of the rest have been a catalogue of his racing career, but this one shows the man in far more depth. According to The Mirror newspaper, even Joey's son Gary called it 'the best tribute you can get. Every last detail is true and the photos are absolute class.' If it's convincing enough for Gary, it's good enough for me, too.

Format: Hardcover
Here we have a fascinating story, lavishly illustrated, and backed up by copious facts and figures. But I am a little tired of this "just-good-enough" style of sportswriting. There must be people who are able to write well and intelligently about bike racing. Shame Haynes couldn't find one. Everybody oohs and aahs over the photos and checks out how good a book looks on the shelf , but it is the text which makes a great book. Five-star pics, three-star content, no stars for style.

Provides a useful record of the career of JD. that ended so tragically in Latvia. Good quality photographs. This book will remain in demand for a long time. Market is restricted and specialist.
