Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Strongman: My Story by Eddie 'The Beast' Hall.

'If you never see me on the podium at World's Strongest Man, I probably died trying.' (Eddie Hall)

Few athletes have had as big an impact on British sport over the last five years as Eddie Hall. Not only is he the subject of trending Netflix documentary Eddie: Strongman, but his Facebook page is approaching three quarters of a million likes, with 10,000 new fans joining each week, and he draws huge crowds at the Strongman arena tour Giants Live.

The reason for Eddie's popularity is simple: he is the biggest name and the biggest talent in one of the fastest-growing sports. He is pure box office. And it's not just his fan base that is immense. Everything about Eddie is huge. Standing at six foot three, he weighs almost 31 stone, and to make it through his hellish four-hour gym sessions, he needs to eat a minimum of 11,000 calories. He puts himself under so much strain, his left eyeball once burst out of its socket.

In his remarkable autobiography, Eddie takes you inside the world of the professional strongman - the nutrition, the training and the competitions themselves. It's a visceral story of sporting achievement, of an athlete pushing himself to the limits, and the personal journey of a man on a path to being the best in the world.

Eddie hall awesome as always

Fantastic listen with fantastic stories, from start to finish. Great narrating. If you're not into strongman before purchasing this book, you soon will be. The Beast is a great personality who comes across down to earth. Get listening and enjoy it.

Brutally honest

I started to read this book as I watched Eddie's documentary. Eddie refers to this throughout the book so I would also recommend watching that first.

Really inspiring book with all the honest parts kept in!

I would recommend this book for any sports person or any driven individual.

The Best Athlete Audio Book EVER Written

The title of the review is a bit ostentatious... so is using a word like ostentatious, but without a doubt this was by far the BEST autobiography I have ever read. I got shivers throughout numerous points of the book, as if I was actually bloody there, standing next to Eddie or in his place, and even then there were times where this book brought me to tears. The sacrifice, the dedication, the raw and unrelenting pain and discipline. Thousands and thousands of hours. Years and years of hunger. Eddie captures this all, and leaves you with new perspectives on life, discipline and training. He even gives some insights to his daily routine, how he trained for his deadlift of 500kg and all in all how discipline and competition can benefit anyone’s life.

The performance of this book was amazing! Steven Hartley really brought this book to life, and really seemed to understand Eddies tone. I can not stress enough how everything on this is 10/10. If you are looking for something to read and to garner greatness, look no further. The bloody intro alone will grab you by the throat!
