The story of life at the center of the world's most dangerous sport, by its brightest and biggest star
Guy Martin—international road-racing legend, maverick star of the Isle of Man TT, truck mechanic, and TV presenter—lives on the edge, addicted to speed, thoroughly exhilarated by danger. This book takes readers inside his head as he stares death in the face and risks his life in search of the next high, even as he agonizes over the loss of close friends in horrific accidents. He'll explain what it feels like to survive a 170mph fireball at the TT in 2010, and come back to do it all again. He sweeps readers up in a gritty sort of glory as he slogs it out for a place on the podium, but he also describes struggling with the flipside of fame. Meet his friends, foes, family, teammates, and bosses, and discover what motivates him, and where his strengths and weaknesses lie. For the first time, here is the full story in Guy's own words. From the boy who learned to prep bikes with his dad, to the spirited team mechanic, paying his way by collecting glasses, to the young racer at the start of his first race and the buzz he's been chasing ever since, this thrilling autobiography is an intense and dramatic ride.

"Entertaining ... Very much like talking to Guy - fast, scattergun-style, slightly confusing and contradictory on occasion! Guy Martin fans will love it." Motorcycle Racer
