Publisher's Summary

Tony (A. P.) McCoy has collected a record 20 consecutive jump jockey titles to date, and since 1992 he has ridden over 4,300 winners. This powerfully honest memoir looks at life at the very top in National Hunt racing - and beyond, discussing fatherhood, writing novels and his decision to retire while he's still a long way ahead.

It is a definitive autobiography that is themed around A. P.'s 10 most important races: his first ride, first race, first fall, first win, greatest disappointment - and greatest triumph.

These are the memoirs of a true champion, an icon of sport whose astonishing achievements over the past 20 years are unlikely to be surpassed. It is a great story of courage and triumphs, setbacks and pain, the private and public life of a riding phenomenon. Read by Stephen Armstrong.
