The World According to Foggy

By Carl Fogarty

  • E-Book
  • £P.O.R.

A pulsating and entertaining flat-out charge through life by Carl Fogarty, the legendary motorbike racing icon.

Published to coincide with the thirtieth anniversary of the Superbike World Championship, The World According to Foggy will delight the legions of motor sport fans in the UK and beyond, and will be lapped by those who have enjoyed books by Valentino Rossi, Guy Martin, Michael Dunlop, John McGuinness, Ian Hutchinson and Freddie Spencer.

This is a full-throttle, rip-roaring, white-knuckle pillion ride with motorcycle racing icon Carl Fogarty, a man the nation took to their hearts as 'King of the Jungle' in the 2014 series of I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!

The World According to Foggy is packed with hilarious tales from inside and outside the sport. Racers past and present, including Valentino Rossi, Marc Marquez, Steve Hislop and Guy Martin, all come under Foggy scrutiny.

He dips into the memory banks to relive those special moments of his career in World Superbikes and at his 'spiritual home', the Isle of Man TT, and talks candidly for the first time about his venture into team ownership, as well as his inner demons.

Carl lifts the lid on his madcap mates and their daft antics and shares his quirky wisdom on topics as diverse as cricket, hikers, News at Ten, fainting goats, traffic lights and the full English breakfast on trains.

Ultimately, The World According to Foggy reveals the real man behind the visor: cheeky, witty, down-to-earth ... and every-so-slightly bonkers.

Biographical Notes

CARL FOGARTY won seven world titles, including four World Superbike championships, in a glittering motorcycle racing career. Add three Isle of Man TT victories and Carl's iconic status in the sport is undisputed. After retiring from racing in 2000 following a career-ending crash in Australia, Carl's career took an unexpected turn when he won the 2014 series of I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! He is the father of two daughters, Danielle and Claudia, and lives in Blackburn with his wife, Michaela.

Old Too Soon, Smart Too Late

Oliver Holt, Kieron Dyer
Authors:
Oliver Holt, Kieron Dyer

Kieron Dyer's memoir, Old Too Soon, Smart Too Late, is the first intimate and unsparing portrait of the failures and excesses of the generation of English footballers made rich beyond their wildest dreams by the post-1990 World Cup boom in the game and the explosion of the Premier League. It shares the same brutal honesty and self-awareness of the bestselling No Nonsense by Joey Barton and GoodFella by Craig Bellamy.In the public mind, Kieron Dyer came to symbolise so much of what was self-destructive about a group of football players known collectively as the 'Baby Bentley generation'. Nicknamed 'The King of Bling' by the tabloid press, Dyer was caught up in many of the scandals that characterised the history of a talented crop of players who promised so much and delivered so little, a generation whose wages and lavish lifestyles began to alienate them from the fans who once worshipped them.The brash young man is gone now, and in his place is the quiet, caring, wise man who was such a favourite on I'm a Celebrity, Get me Out of Here! in 2015. Dyer narrates, in uncompromising detail, how a generation of talented English footballers, taken out of working class childhoods and presented with a world of glitz, glamour, wealth and temptation, failed to cope with the riches that were presented to them and often fell apart.Old Too Soon, Smart Too Late is about a moment in time, a social and historical record of English football at the start of its gold rush. For Dyer, the end of the book brings a measure of personal redemption and peace but for the English game, there is only a lingering sense of waste and regret for an opportunity lost.

New clues lead to new avenues of darkness... Alex Delaware returns in Motive, a thrilling new case featuring one of the most devious murderers ever conceived by New York Times No.1 bestseller Jonathan Kellerman. Perfect for fans of Lee Child and David Baldacci. '[Motive] will even keep genre veterans guessing... The twists are both shocking and logical, and the byplay between the leads entertaining' - Publishers WeeklyEven hundreds of closed cases to his credit can't keep LAPD police lieutenant Milo Sturgis from agonising over the crimes that don't get solved - and the victims who go without justice. Victims like Katherine Hennepin, a young woman strangled and stabbed in her home. A single suspect with a solid alibi leads to a dead end - one even psychologist Alex Delaware's expert insight can't explain. The only thing to do is move on to the next murder case - because there is always a next one.This time the victim is Ursula Corey, a successful, attractive divorcee who's been gunned down - not a robbery but an execution, a crime that smacks of simple, savage revenge. And along with that theoretical motive come two strong contenders for the role of suspect: the dead woman's business partner/ex-husband and her divorce lawyer/secret lover. But just as Alex and Milo think they're zeroing in on the killer, a bizarre new clue stirs up echoes of the unsolved Hennepin murder. And the discovery of yet another crime scene bearing the same taunting signature raises the spectre of a serial killer on a mission, whose twisted method is exceeded only by his manipulative and cunning madness. What readers are saying about Motive: 'I couldn't turn the pages fast enough''Brilliantly written, exciting and fast paced''Before you know it you are engrossed and utterly addicted'
