    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.
