    No problem, hope you enjoy them both, currently on hutchy and I must say it’s not written (seemingly) as him like these two

    A lot of these autobiographical books are written by a 'ghost writer' who is a writer commissioned to write the works but to remain silent as the author. They will generally have intensive interviews with the subject person and then draft in their own words and interpretation before it goes back to the subject for revision/editing. If the ghost writer is not au fait with the process, the book will suffer.:(

    I have read Michael Dunlop's and would not offer one word of criticism about it. Haven't read Hutchy's though.

    Spot on. I did not get past the first few pages of Hutchy's book - it sounded so false , so completely unlike him that I could not read it. I must have only read about two pages of it.

    Michael Dunlop's book sounds just like him - that deep Northern Irish turn of phrase and use of words - spot on. Great book that.

    Currently reading Tai Woffinden's book - no shy retiring violet that one ! really enjoying that.

    will have to check Tai’s out, although I must admit I’m not much of a speedway fanatic; something’s always drawn me to his character and there’s no doubting he’s an ace rider!
