'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.

"please read your own book guy!"
I think Guy Martin is the breath of fresh air that tv needed. normal. speaks the truth and not afraid to say how it is. disappointed that he didn't read this book. his common sense approach is amplified by his accent but is lost in translation. not knocking the bloke reading it, but it just lost some of its enthusiasm.
it's ok, if you don't want to think too much but builds up only to go limp, when you're expecting something to happen.
if he ever did technical manuals, I'm first in the queue!
can't really recommend it, wasn't loving it by the end. a bit "meh" to use guys words.
"A proper book"
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.
Good. Listen! Keep on being yourself Guy that is what we love about you and why this was a most entertaining book.
"Great as Usual"
Another great book from Guy! It's really refreshing in this day and age that a normal bloke can have a career like Guy's. Instead of the usual reality TV muppets we see everywhere! Who can barely string a sentence together never mind actually write there own book. The book is another year in the life of Guy and it's a year well worth knowing about!
"Another great read."
Great read and a great insight into a complicated and interesting man. Look forward to the next installment.
"a great role model"
an inspiring man who's says it as it is and is very down to earth
brilliant audio book again by guy keep them coming guy martin best book yet fella.
Another fascinating insight to the life of Guy, the fella never fails to bring you in to his determination and drive to do some of the impossible and make them possible, loved the little technical bits about the stuff he has worked on and would love to know more of what he is on about but it doesn't get boring. Looking forward to the next chapters in the future, great read.
"another fantastic insight into guys world"
loved it and cant wait for the next instalment great listen and as interesting as the first two books
really not sure why I like this blokes stories so much but I do. possibly his no B.S. approach to life perhaps
