The book is great and came within the estimated time but I can't find the signature anywhere, this is quite annoying as I paid £3 extra for the signed copy!

Only one chapter I did not want to read and you will know what I mean when you get to it - it's the only reason it don't get 5 stars because I got what I wanted from the book. And yes, I will be backing him whenever he drops to a low weight :)

This is a terrific book. As an autobiography it is in the same high class as Graham Bradley's "The Wayward Lad." Normally I do not buy biographies or autobiographies of top sportsman until they have retired as of necessity they are incomplete. I made an exception for this book and I am glad I did. Mr Hughes is immensely courageous in revealing details of his personal life which in turn give us an insight into the pressures of being a top sportsman in a game that is absolutely cutthroat. This is exacerbated by having to ride at two or even three stones below normal bodyweight.
Unlike other anodyne offerings Mr Hughes is not afraid to express his opinion. He is particularly articulate when discussing the rules governing the use of the whip. When he retires I look forward to seeing him alongside Mick Fitzgerald in the Channel 4 studio.
