Good honest account of his life so far. Fascinating look into the life of argueably the best jump jockey of all time. Beginning from when he was a young boy, who regular missed school to work with horses, to finally achieving the amazing feat of being Sir Gordon Richards record for race wins. You feel the pain that he puts his body through every day & cannot help but admire his dedication to be the best. If you are interested in horse racing, you simply must read this book!

I totally disagree with the 1 star someone has given it. Valiramix* fell fatally after clipping heels with another horse- an accident that occurs regularly in horse racing. McCoy explains all the pain he felt after the fall and how much he felt for the horse. And other to that- he describes his whole life so far in great detail and enthusiasm. If like horse racing and interested in jockeys- this is a must for you!

This book is from 1991, and a lot has happened in Tony McCoy's career since then. But this book is timeless, and a lot of things from back then still apply today. A lot more winners since then, but it's great to read about his will to win, his drive and determination, and these things have not changed since then. It would be great to have a 2011 version of his biography, but this book still has some shelf-life left.

Very easy to read. No revelations for the horse racing fan - but that's fine. The man does actually have a sense of humour which rarely comes across.

I've just finished reading this autobiography and my only complaint is that it is too short and ends in 2002 when A.P beat Sir Gordon Richards record of the most wins in a season. McCoy has had such an eventful life there is loads more to pack in - the fist jock to hit 3000 winners, 14 consequetive championships, the 2010 Grand National win at the 15th attempt and maybe, even a well deserved BBC Sports Personality Award!!! Because, lets face, A.P. McCoy is simply the greatest sportsman Britain has ever produced. The bio is the story of a driven man but it also has warmness, honesty and a humility which is quiet touching. I've read other bio's in a similar vain - Mick Fitzgerald (Better Than Sex), Timmy Murphy (Riding the Storm), Paul Nichols (Lucky Break) and I honestly believe this is the best.
