Publisher's Summary

"If I had to lose my record to anyone, I couldn’t be happier that it was Jonathan. Family connections aside, there is nobody more talented, more determined or more deserving." (Carl Fogarty)

Within the staggeringly dangerous and high-pressure sport of professional motorcycling, Jonathan Rea’s achievements are unprecedented. A legendary World Superbike Champion with more race wins than any rider in history, Rea’s trailblazing success shows no sign of slowing down. 

Now, for the first time, this remarkable sportsman tracks his life and career. Seemingly destined for the racing world, Jonathan grew up in the paddocks - his grandfather was the first sponsor of five-time World Champion Joey Dunlop, and his dad was a former Isle of Man TT winner. He owned his first bike before his hands were big enough to reach the brakes. 

But while racing may be in his blood, it is through sheer determination and relentless perseverance that Rea has gained huge victories in this ultracompetitive world. Topping several of the most prestigious motorcycling championships, he rules the sport - so much so that regulations are being introduced to curb his dominance. The fact that Rea has endured several potentially career-ending scrapes - including smashing his femur at the age of 17 and being told that he would never race again - makes his achievements even more incredible.

'Dream. Believe. Achieve' is Rea’s mantra, and in this gripping autobiography, we go behind the visor and into the mind of a man who has risen to the top of one of the most skilled and dangerous sports in the world.

A nice to know for a die hard fan

The book was interesting in the sense of someone wanting to know the steps Rea took towards getting where he is, but more than that there isn't much content of stories during his life that I usually love reading or in this case hearing.
Good and respectable guy non the less!

the narrator has no idea what he's talking about

the narrator clearly has no idea about the subject material, mispronouncing many names of people and places that anyone listening to this book will notice. Among these mispronounciations: max Biaggi, ten Kate, Ben spies, Assen, Imola, 'Pierre riba', 'Parc ferm', etc. it's so jarring I can barely finish the book.

for some reason the narration fades in and out at times, the volume level goes up and down to the point that I thought my sleep timer was activating.

narration aside, it's an honest story about an honest racer who has become the force to deal with in superbike.

Great story read badly

This is a great story written by a truly great rider, however it's a shame that the pronunciation of the key circuits, riders names, and manufacturers are wrong. This is very disappointing and becomes frustrating as the book goes on.

GET THE NAMES RIGHT !

Great book.
Just a shame the narrator didn't find out about the pronunciation of the names.
In a book about motorcycle racing, I believe, the narrator should have some knowledge of the sport, and be able to get the pronunciation of very well known names right.

Enjoyed.

Enjoyed this book & glad I got round to eventually listening to it. Narration is good. Jonathan Rea is another Local hero in these parts (Northern Ireland) and others down to his super talent.
