    Guy Martin's books always provide an exhilarating insight into the daredevil's full-throttle life. But what would happen if he couldn't take part in road races? This exciting book will show you that even when he's in pain, he's in no mood to rest up...

    Guy describes how it felt when he crashed out of the lead of an Ulster Grand Prix superbike race held on the world's fastest race track. This accident left him with a broken spine and hand and he was unable to take part in road racing for a while but he didn't take it easy. He took it upon himself to break records on the world's biggest Wall of Death, cycled 2,745 miles across the length of the Unites States (while sleeping rough) and travelled to Latvia to investigate his family's roots.

    He also talks about the wacky races he took part in while recovering including wild Harley choppers on dirt and turbo-charged Transit vans through the Nevada desert. Of course, he's also got his day job at the truck yard and butty van.

    With all the missions they've completed in the past, you'd have thought that bringing up a baby would be kid's play for The Five. However, when they find themselves looking after Cousin Rupert and his wife's baby, they have to deal with all sorts of issues - from fear to tiredness and responsibility.

    They have no idea if what they're doing is right or why the baby is crying. They use Dr Google constantly and are frustrated by the responses that range from 'don't worry about it' to 'rush her to the A & E'. Soon, the Five are reduced to trembling wrecks and all of them are quietly seething. Could this be an adventure too far?

    In her own inimitable style, Miranda Hart hilariously describes how her Shih-Tzu Bichon Frise puppy Peggy has changed - and improved - her life.

    She reveals how it wasn't necessarily a case of love at first sight when she met Peggy. Miranda was at a low ebb and she had to get her head around the amount of dog administration (dog-min). The first trip to the vet was one of humiliation and it still haunts her to this day.

    But once Miranda and Peggy got over these bumps, a beautiful bond started to form. They have shared some life-changing moments and learned a lot from each other - including lessons about life, love, trust and friendship.
