I have read this book several times and its not just for TG fans or petrol heads. I would recommend everyone reads it Its a amazing story of not just the crash but the road to recovery showing not just how hard it was for Richard but for all those around him and the amazing strength of his Wife Mindy. I found it both lighthearted and very serious at the same time very interesting from the first page.Even shows the health service in a good light for once.
Id like to thank the pair of them for… Read Full Review

Richard Hammond, On The Edge: My Story by Richard Hammond is a very good book and I recommend it to everyone. I really enjoyed this book because it didn't have just his side of the story it had his wifes Mindys side and how she coped with the children, Richard and the media. In the first few chapters he tells us how he got on top gear and his previous jobs and about his "adreneline" filled childhood and teenage years. In one of the chapters he tells us about the had the accident and there are… Read Full Review

The book itself is gripping to the end. Once you have immersed yourself in the book you will be eager to find out more about the Hamster and how he overcame the battle to finally reappear on our screens after that fateful crash. The book goes into great detail about the crash, Richard's recovery and how his family coped throughout the whole ordeal. Truly amazing read… Read Full Review
