Publisher's Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Strongman: My Story by Eddie 'The Beast' Hall.

'If you never see me on the podium at World's Strongest Man, I probably died trying.' (Eddie Hall)

Few athletes have had as big an impact on British sport over the last five years as Eddie Hall. Not only is he the subject of trending Netflix documentary Eddie: Strongman, but his Facebook page is approaching three quarters of a million likes, with 10,000 new fans joining each week, and he draws huge crowds at the Strongman arena tour Giants Live.

The reason for Eddie's popularity is simple: he is the biggest name and the biggest talent in one of the fastest-growing sports. He is pure box office. And it's not just his fan base that is immense. Everything about Eddie is huge. Standing at six foot three, he weighs almost 31 stone, and to make it through his hellish four-hour gym sessions, he needs to eat a minimum of 11,000 calories. He puts himself under so much strain, his left eyeball once burst out of its socket.

In his remarkable autobiography, Eddie takes you inside the world of the professional strongman - the nutrition, the training and the competitions themselves. It's a visceral story of sporting achievement, of an athlete pushing himself to the limits, and the personal journey of a man on a path to being the best in the world.

Outstanding!

From the first word to the last, I was captivated by this book.

The narrator was fantastic, I often forgot that it wasn't Eddie reading it!

If you want inspiration to achieve something in life, listen to or read this book.

Great story from a complex and outstanding man

great narration and great story. perfect length for an audio book. although eddie didn't narrate it himself, the narrator felt almost eddie-like and you'd often forget it was some one else talking. would recommend!

Very entertaining, but what you would expect.

Straight up, this is a fun book and Eddie has an entertaining style about him. But it's not a fantastic book.

If you like strongman, excersise or are into sports it's a tremendous story. But it's written amateurishly, as you would expect.

Overall really enjoyed it, some bits were a bit slow, but overall very good.

The narrator is great too.

amazing

Great story, has to be read by any strength athlete or anyone with an interest in strength sports.
Hope he writes another at some point. Only thing I could nitpick is that I wish Eddie had done the naration himself.

One of the best audio reads yet. good work big man

loved it from start to finish , and what a finish! makes me want to eat a shit ton of food and get myself down the gym.. well played big man you kept your promise.

An easy 5 Stars, even if you're not into your weight lifting. it's a story of hard work and determination paying off and my god did he have to earn it.

Typical Eddie Hall. 😆

Great listen. If you’re a fan of Eddie you’ll love this book. It’s written in typical fashion of how Eddie is as a person.
His sense of humour and how much he loves himself it’s what makes him a great guy and why we love him.

This book is both funny and at times emotional.

There’s a couple of reviews moaning that all he does is brag about himself... Well that’s what he does... that’s his sense of humour and if you’re a fan then you know that this is what he’s like and it’s funny to hear.
If you’re moaning about that then you’re obviously not an Eddie Hall fan.

This is my first audiobook and I loved it.

What a book!!!

You will be forgiven for thinking that Eddie is not actually a writer of stories, but a strongman! The book reads really well, and you really feel that heart and soul are laid bare here for all to read/Listen.

This is so much more than just a story of a strong bloke from the UK!

I don't think I can do this book justice, It's good enough for me to have started listening again! I hope in some ways that Eddie has as well in his next career as he did as a strongman so I can read about that too!
