Summary

Brought to you by Penguin. 

Matt Baker's first-ever book is a diary of the natural year and a glimpse into family life on the farm, peppered with moments from his TV career throughout.

Away from the bright lights of hosting our favourite television programmes, Countryfile, The One Show, Blue Peter and many more, Matt Baker is happiest on the farm with his family, dogs, array of sheep, Mediterranean miniature donkeys and a whole host of wildlife in the farm's ancient woodland.

A celebration of the natural year, Matt Baker takes us on a journey through the seasons, his life on the farm and how the power and beauty of the countryside has made him who he is.

Totally inspirational

This is just one of the best books I have listened to in quite a while. Matt both wrote and narrated this book and made a dam good job of it. If when starting this book you have doubts in your own mind that you can’t do something then think again. Matt inspires you all the way with his story. This is a book that I will go through again and again.

If by any chance Matt was to see this review I just want to say Thank You for such a good job.

A VERY ENJOYABLE READ 10 out of 10

Well done Matt , what an interesting experience.
After listening to EMMA GREY and MATT one tends to use these books as ‘bench marks ‘ for other books.

Love Matt Baker even more

I just love how normal and funny Matt Baker is. His story is honest, funny and inspirational. He's a fantastic role model and proof that hard work pays off.

Inspirational read.

This is a wonderfully written and read book- Thanks Matt. The insight into the life choices we all have to make as part of a family when someone becomes ill really is both powerful and informative. Then the inspiration you give about chasing your dreams and using your dyslexia as a benefit, not a difficulty is wonderful. Loving the programme but the book has been eye-opening thank you for sharing with us.

Misleading title

I would have preferred the book to be more about the farm and a little less about Matt Baker's career. I did enjoy it though and his passion for organic farming really came through. I hope he writes another book but concentrates more on the farm

Loved listening to Matt telling his own story.

Loved this book so much, especially living in the same area and having the same interests.
