The life and times of the No.1 bestselling author of ON THE EDGE.
The wry, honest and often hilarious chronicles of a very brave and clever TV presenter, Arctic Explorer and general drawer of the Short Straw. As one third of the BBC's Top Gear team, Richard Hammond's year since his near-fatal accident has been full of stunts and drama. From a race to the North Pole (with skis and dog-sled) to a journey through Botswana in a car named Oliver, and a seventeen-mile run through floods to his Gloucestershire home, in order to get to his daughter's birthday party, the year has been eventful, to say the least . . .With his boundless optimism in the face of certain failure, Richard Hammond has become one of our funniest writers about a life (and a job) which constantly present a challenge.

Richard Hammond is one of the presenters on the BBC car show TOP GEAR, and he's crafted an utterly charming memoir. The show is known for outlandish stunts, such as driving to the North Pole. Hammond makes that trip by dogsled rather than car, and his observations put listeners right there in the frozen tent with him (and make them grateful for their own warm beds). Equally compelling is his story of floods in the English countryside, of running miles and miles home in the dark, of borrowing an old boat to mount a rescue of a couple of friends stranded in their house. Hammond has great timing and a friendly, intimate reading style, ensuring that every joke is funny and that listeners are rapt. J.M.D. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
