Set against the backdrop of China’s Cultural Revolution, a secret military project sends signals into space to establish contact with aliens.

From the creator of the wildly popular xkcd, What If? gives hilarious and informative answers to important questions you probably never thought to ask. Millions visit xkcd.com each week to read Randall Munroe's iconic webcomic. Fans ask him a lot of strange questions. How fast can you hit a speed bump, driving, and live? When (if ever) did the sun go down on the British Empire? When will Facebook contain more profiles of dead people than living?

The Phenomenal Sunday Times Number-One Best Seller. It was the start of the third lap of the 2010 Senior TT, the last race of the fortnight. The last chance to get a TT win for another year, and I was pushing hard. Ballagarey. The kind of corner that makes me continue road racing. A proper man’s corner. You go through the right-hander at something like 170 miles per hour, leant right over, eyes fixed as far down the road as I can see. But this time something happened. This time the front end tucked....

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Just wish Guy Martin had narrated it.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Guy Martin: My Autobiography?

His childhood is very interesting to me

What didn’t you like about Dean Williamson’s performance?

The way he said certain words like riders names and MPH would not be how Guy would say them and pull me out of the story.

Could you see Guy Martin: My Autobiography being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?

No
