'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.

"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!
"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.
"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.
Good. Listen! Keep on being yourself Guy that is what we love about you and why this was a most entertaining book.
"Brilliant as always"
I have read all Guys books with Audible the Narrator is PERFECT it's almost like listening to Guy himself, The Story is good especially the sections about the Tour Divide , And Speed Record, Looking forward to the next one soon
"trying to hard to be ab ordinary bloke"
its a very easy listen and he gets to do really interesting stuff.
plays it all down a bit too much and trying to hard to present image of a truck mechanic
I enjoy all of guys books. He's not your typical tv wanker. He a proper adventure seeker
Another great catch up on the last 12 months of projects that Guy's worked on.
Enjoyable book but he's massively contradicted himself regarding the TT seeing as shortly after this book he signed for Honda!!?
"Don't waste your money."
I have always thought of Guy as one of my hero's , but apart from chapter 10 which covers the Great Divide Bike race , the rest is just " Padding " with things from the TV series we have all seen .
