'I'm wearing everything out... Why? I don't have an answer. Other than I want to break myself. Then what? I believe the body is a fantastic thing and it will repair itself and I'll go again.' This year Guy Martin is restoring and racing a 1983 Williams F1 car; he's attempting the land speed record in Bolivia; he's going for the fastest ever Channel crossing; he's customiz 'I'm wearing everything out... Why? I don't have an answer. Other than I want to break myself. Then what? I believe the body is a fantastic thing and it will repair itself and I'll go again.' This year Guy Martin is restoring and racing a 1983 Williams F1 car; he's attempting the land speed record in Bolivia; he's going for the fastest ever Channel crossing; he's customizing his Ford Transit for record-breaking circuits around Nurburgring, and he's building a Typhoon. That's exciting - it has to be, otherwise he wouldn't do it. But it's TV stuff. It's not real graft. Real graft is his 70-hour week mending trucks for a local haulage firm. And between 'proper' jobs, over the summer, he was taytie farming on his new John Deere tractor, working in the fields from 5 a.m. to 7 p.m. He was thinking of diversifying into muck-spreading, then the truck-fitting job came up. Oh yes - and besides the day job and the TV, he's bought his local pub, and the most terrifying he's ever done is sing on stage (out of tune) in front of the Kirmington crowd on New Year's Eve. Only Guy lives a life like this, and only his stories, in his own words, can do it justice.

    Not quite as good as his others I dont think; probably a 3.5. Still an entertaining read with Guy's no filter portrayals and Guy-isms. Not quite as good as his others I dont think; probably a 3.5. Still an entertaining read with Guy's no filter portrayals and Guy-isms.

    Guy in fine form and excellent as always. Well worth a read as it tells you about guy’s life as well as the racing. Got ‘worms to catch’ for Christmas, so that’s next. 👍

    Quite an "immediate" book as Guy is clear he effectively kept notes through the years covered by this book and that makes it a little sporadic, however what you do get is an unfiltered insight into Guy's approach to life. This book feels much less edited than his first autobiography, a bit like his publisher has recognised that what makes him readable and "interesting" is not polishing the writing. Guy Martin is probably a bit "marmite' but he'd likely be happy with that description.

Guy Martin is probably a bit "marmite' but he'd likely be happy with that description. I was interested in how he had to consciously work out that honesty can be rude and that his chimp is called Brian! I think his "charm" on TV and in the books is that he really isn't interested in fame, sees it as a nice earner worth a bit of investment in time but would be equally (if not more?) happy grafting on trucks, playing in his shed/s and appreciating his family.

    Can’t get enough of Guy Martin’s books and work. Fascinating guy who is into so many different things and is always busy. What I love most about his books is that he is always so ‘blunt’ and matter-of-fact in the way he relays anything, so you get a real sense for the situation and also a wonderful insight into the guy himself. This book was a good, honest read, and given this is Guy Martin, it is as varied as ever.

    If you are a fan of Guy Martin's TV work, you will love this book. It is written as you hear him when he talks to camera - the came self criticism, honesty, and one line humour. This book had me laughing out loud. I look forward to reading other books that Guy Martin has written, especially if this one is anything to go buy, and you don't need to be a bike enthusiast to understand what he is writing about.

    Guy Martin has a very straightforward brain to pen with no filter style of writing. His diary like book is interesting to see the other side of his well known television appearances intermixed with aspects of his personal life. An interesting book for Guy Martin fans but probably of little interest to anyone else.

    I like Guy Martin a lot and his various exploits are always interesting, but for me this latest instalment of his life has a bit too much filler. There are some good stories, but this time he goes off on one more regularly than previously! I will though still check out his next book because you never know what he’s going to do next!!

    Probably Guy Martin's best book to date, covering a range of topics including what is likely to be his final TT, racing vintage F1 cars with Jenson Button, visiting Russia and Chernobyl and plenty more besides. With less rambling than previous books, I thought this was a "reet good read".

    Another great read from Guy giving behind the scenes coverage of some of his TV exploits plus his down to earth views along the way. Thoroughly enjoyed it and can't wait for his next one to come out. Another great read from Guy giving behind the scenes coverage of some of his TV exploits plus his down to earth views along the way.

    This perhaps doesn't work brilliantly as a standalone book but in conjunction with his last few books in a similar style brings you right up to date with Guys recent escapades.

    Another great read from Guy. Typical straight talking, nothing hidden, down to earth and revealing his life, his thoughts and his unique personality. Looking forward to hearing more in the future.

    Mr. Martin's fourth memoir continues in much the same vein of his first three. His new adventures include a trip to Russia and the Ukraine, restoring an old F1 car, and driving his tractor during the potato harvest.

    Enjoyable enough but perhaps I've just seen too many of the TV programmes too recently - not that many new stories. Enjoyable enough but perhaps I've just seen too many of the TV programmes too recently - not that many new stories.
