If you are a fan of Top Gear you really need to listen to this. You know Richard had a bad crash. You know he was quite different for a while after returning. You know the BBC won't ever air that episode again.
But you don't know what Richard and his family and friends and colleagues really went through to bring him back to being a part of the show. This book was truly heart felt in its writing and delivery by Richard and his wonderful wife Mindy.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
It was ok, I expected a bit more so was quite disappointed.
What do you think your next listen will be?
It was the Rob Louw book -Stories I only tell my friends' and WHAT A DIFFERENCE and I've fallen in love with audiobooks story telling
Would you listen to another book narrated by Richard Hammond and Mindy Hammond ?
Did On the Edge inspire you to do anything?
Any additional comments?
While Richard is enormously Entertainng on TV I was slightly disappointed in how his voice translates in audible. His wife has 'cute voice' but not for audio

The ups & downs the smiles & tears as experienced by so many of us out there in the real world, beautifully narrated by both Richard & Mindy allowing one to share in the emotional rollercoaster hearing the story unfold from both sides of the fence, I am not one normally interested in hearing about the hurt & pain suffered in others life?s but this title had me intrigued from the start, I had to listen right through to the end even though I thought I knew how it ended, the anguish,the desperation of ones life clearly came through, Mindy obviously upset but having the strength for both made me realise how wonderful it was to have the support of loved ones around, sometimes I feel we all take that for granted, I shared in both their pain and thier fear?s as if living it myself eventually pulling through, empathic in Mindy cause, they I think were fortunate that tragedy brought them closer, may be this is a lesson for us all? I bless them both and wish them every success for the future, and I would like to say simply thank you to them for sharing a segment of their lives with me.
The music between chapters was a great choice and added that something special.

On the edge starts with a brief summary of Richards work history but then goes into detail regarding the accident.
The audio includes his wife talking with feeling about the accident and recovery...very moving.
This is a great audio book to listen too....well worth the purchase...enjoy

After recovering from a serious brain injury myself, it was nice hearing someone else's experience going through a similar situation.
