Publisher's 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.

DEAD good!

Absolutely brilliant book, Ive loved Eddie Hall since I first saw him on strongman and I love him even more.

The book is so honest, funny, endearing and inspiring.

I had an extremely close relationship with my nan and totally get what he’s talking about when he speaks of his.

He is WORLDS STRONGEST MAN and when you read this you realise why.

What a guy!!!

Excellent book by Britain’s strongman

Great book, really well narrated. Eddie is some character. I really enjoyed the story of how he has developed first as a swimmer and then as a strongman.

Total determination!

Could have been a huge star in the swimming world but because of, and due to his attitude, (which comes across so vividly in the narrative), he focused on a long arduous journey to the world of Strongman.

Positives and negatives

Inspirational in terms of the grit to succeed, but a bit cringe worthy in terms of bragging at times, especially on things that are not that admirable or impressive, with some immature school boy antic type feelings and actions against other competitors. When the reality is obviously there is no need, mainly as he has an impressive work effort and talent. But maybe that’s how he has raised the sports profile? However a Very touching part was around his nan, which was admirable.
