Publisher's Summary

Watch My Back is the story of one man's search for courage. Depressed, bullied, intimidated by life and indoctrinated to believe that this was his lot, Geoff Thompson, on the verge of a breakdown, decided to fight back. In a bid to confront his fears, he took a job as a bouncer in one of Britain's roughest nightclubs. Over the next 10 years, he was involved in hundreds of brutal and bloody fights that left two of his friends murdered and many more in prison. Geoff reached the top of his trade and became addicted to violence. Then it all changed. After nearly being killed in a gang attack, and almost killing one of his attackers, he was forced to reassess his relationship with violence. After writing down his experiences, Geoff discovered a flair for writing.This is the story of an ordinary man who faced his fears and took himself from bedsit to best seller but very nearly got killed on the way. Geoff Thompson is now the author of over 30 books, a stage play and a BAFTA-winning short film. This book is now a major motion picture: Clubbed.

I really am not sure where to start - this book - the story, the reading, everything about it is freaking amazing!

It's a gritty story of a very tough man. It's a story of a scared young boy and later man facing and conquering his fears. It's a story of a man chasing and realizing his dreams. It's a treatise on fear and adrenalin affects on a person. By the end of the book you just want to freaking meet this guy.

Just get the damn book already and listen to it. It really is that good. And the narrator ROCKED! Best read book I have listened to.
