Review

What possesses man to risk his life and limb in search of the next high?.. Times journalist and author Broadbent has come closer than ever to answering that question. (PRESS ASSOCIATION 2012-06-16)

I seem to have consumed every TT-related book/article/video clip so far, but this one is a cracker... perhaps the best of all (MOTORSPORT 2012-09-01)

Broadbent skilfully weaves in this history of TT racing as this quartet of riders lap the 37.75 mile course.. by the end you might not share these men's passions but you begin to understand, even admire it. (Simon Redfern THE INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY 2012-08-05)

There are 242 corners on the TT course and this book leaves you with the impression that death is lurking round every one. (SPORT 2012-11-16)

I'll have a soft spot for That Near Death Thing by Rick Broadbent, a terrific piece of work on the Isle of Man TT (Frank Keating THE OBSERVER 2012-11-25)

How can it be worth it? Rick Broadbent's raw, tender book comes close to the heart of the mystery. (SUNDAY TELEGRAPH 2012-11-25)

a thrilling ride 'inside the helmets' of four victory-hungry daredevils. (Megan Walsh THE TIMES 2012-12-08)

a great read (THE INDEPENDENT 2012-12-08)
