Publisher's Summary

Watch My Back is the story of one man's search for courage. Depressed, bullied, intimidated by life and indoctrinated to believe that this was his lot, Geoff Thompson, on the verge of a breakdown, decided to fight back. In a bid to confront his fears, he took a job as a bouncer in one of Britain's roughest nightclubs. Over the next 10 years, he was involved in hundreds of brutal and bloody fights that left two of his friends murdered and many more in prison. Geoff reached the top of his trade and became addicted to violence. Then it all changed.

    Story
    "FREAKING AWESOME BOOK - BEST AUDIO BOOK SO FAR"

    I really am not sure where to start - this book - the story, the reading, everything about it is freaking amazing!

    It's a gritty story of a very tough man. It's a story of a scared young boy and later man facing and conquering his fears. It's a story of a man chasing and realizing his dreams. It's a treatise on fear and adrenalin affects on a person. By the end of the book you just want to freaking meet this guy.

    Just get the damn book already and listen to it. It really is that good. And the narrator ROCKED! Best read book I have listened to.

    Story
    "Book about personal development, life & violence"
    Would you listen to Watch My Back again? Why?

    Yes for a refresher on the life lessons and insight to real life violence.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The look at real life violence and how it really occurs.


    What does Simon Trinder bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    You just have to love the British accent. Although an British to American dictionary would have been handy a few time :)


    Any additional comments?

    Great book. I would really recommend it to young males say 16 to 28 years old. One for the life lessons it offers and two for the insights to real life violence. He shows you the steps that confirmations take on in real life. If you know the steps, you can avoid the dance.
