Product Description

Product Description

First released in 1992 as a 180 page paperback Watch My Back has gone on to find a global audience (100,000 copies sold) and a cult following. As well making the Sunday Times Best Sellers List in both paper back and hard back, the book (and the stories there in) has made its way into hundreds of articles, a stage play (Doorman), a BAFTA nominated short film (Bouncer) starring Ray Winstone and Paddy Consadine, and a muti-award winning half hour film (Romans 12;20) and now a £2 million theatrical feature film, (Clubbed, released to cinemas January 2009). We re delighted to announce sixteen years after it's first publication, a brand new, updated version of Watch My Back, with a new epilogue and lots of exciting new photographs taken from Clubbed and from the BAFTA's is available

More About the Author

Until the age of thirty Geoff Thompson had worked through a plethora of menial jobs, from glass collector to floor sweeper; he even spent a decade working as a nightclub bouncer.

Convinced that there must be more to life than this, Geoff decided to become a martial arts instructor (polled as the number one self defence instructor in the world by Black Belt magazine USA) then followed this by living out his dream of becoming a writer.

He is now the author of thirty-four books published in 15 languages, five multi-award-winning films (one BAFTA nominated, one BAFTA winning), three stage plays and hundreds of published articles.

Geoff's autobiography, Watch My Back, has been adapted into a major motion picture, Clubbed.

If you ever wanted to work the door or were curious about what it takes to get into that line of work read this. Geoff Thompson is the doorman I aspire to. He like me had to learn to tame the fear factor and found that this line of work was how to do that. Unlike some hard men you used to see on the door Geoff never let his guard down and always teaches that the real danger is after the smoke clears, a great book and well worth reading.

I bought the original paperback when it first came out. I have also met and spoken to Geoff and got him to sign my copy so my new Kindle is a backup. Geoff broke the mould and opened up a whole new area on fear management and acceptance. The book details his journey from a timid and scared youth into a devastating and respected fighter with an iron will and control of his earlier fears. He is honest, open and tells it exactly as it was/is. This book should be on every man’s bookshelf as it mirrors in many ways our own experiences if we are only just honest enough to admit them. Thanks Geoff for shining a light on some very dark places.

5.0 out of 5 stars More of a self-help book than an autobiography. 24 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I originally got this book when it was a small advert in Combat magazine. Back then it was violent and lacked a touch of empathy. Since then, he's re-written it several times to reflect his mind-set at the time.
