'I was never going to sleep in and take it easy. There were worms to catch.'
In August 2015 Guy Martin crashed out of the lead of an Ulster Grand Prix superbike race held on the world's fastest racetrack. He had invasive surgery to bolt his broken spine and hand back together, and within days he decided he needed some time away from road racing. But he wasn't about to take it easy.
In his brand-new book, discover how Britain's favourite daredevil filled his time when road racing was taken out of the equation. He set about breaking records on the world's biggest Wall of Death, cycling 2,745 miles across the length of the United States (while sleeping rough), attempting to be the fastest person ever on two wheels and travelling to Latvia to investigate his family's roots.
There's some thrilling racing, too, including wild Harley choppers on dirt and turbo-charged Transit vans through the Nevada desert. And there's the day job to get back to in North Lincolnshire - the truck yard and the butty van.

Honest, funny, personal. Doing things his way. This bloke is not a messer, writing in the same style he seems to approach the rest of his life. Recommend it to those who like to get after life for the journey between their own events. It's proper? Loved it. Thanks to Guy.
A great read/listen for all those fans of Guy Martin and petrol heads in general. If you have read/listened to his earlier books you get a good understanding of how he ticks and how he's evolving as a person.
If you like Guy Martin then I thoroughly recommend this book. The book documents the time of Guys road race accident upto his Triumph Motorcycles land speed record attempt.
Wonderful book and as with the other two it packs a lot in. It's very refreshing and good to know that his still the same man he was before the tv work and always nice to hear things from his point of view. Great read and top read
