Flat Out Flat Broke: The Original Stig

Adult; Memoir; (Market)

Perry McCarthy is an ex Formula One racing driver and was the original ‘Stig’ from the BBC Top Gear TV show. Flat Out Flat broke is his hilarious and internationally acclaimed autobiography which takes you on Perry’s roller-coaster adventure as he battled on and off the race tracks of the world to fulfil his dream of Grand Prix stardom. One of the best selling motor racing books of all time, Perry’s story will have you on the edge of your seat either on the verge of tears or howling with laughter at both his bizarre misfortune and his triumphs against the odds. Don't miss it, it's the life story of a battler, a maestro in so many disciplines. But overall Perry McCarthy knows how to recover from failure and create success. From working on oil rigs to fame as The Stig, Flat Out Flat Broke is an utterly fascinating read and you will see why even other racing drivers affectionately call him ‘Mad Dog’!

5.0 out of 5 stars Laugh out loud journey to 'near' stardom!, 19 Mar. 2015

This review is from: Flat Out Flat Broke: The Original Stig (Kindle Edition)

I had the original hardback and later the paperback. I've read the book 3 times and it still makes me laugh out loud. If your a motorsports fan or someone who needs how to 'get right back up again' then get this NOW!
I was lucky enough to meet up with Perry and we became friends. There are elements of the story which are quite sad, highlighting the difficulty for talented British drivers to make it in F1 due to lack of finance. I remember meeting him on the pitlane at Le Mans when he had a real chance of honours driving for Audi - only for his team mate to miss the pits when due for a scheduled fuel stop! A typical tale of Perry's up n down world which is available to enjoy now on Kindle.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant read. Very funny and highly recommended!, 19 Mar. 2015

Fantastic read. Perry's story is quite unbelievable and puts the problems of others somewhat in perspective. The many ups and downs during his career (probably more of the later) and how he handled them are regurgitated in this book with incredible humour. Through some chapters I couldn't help but feel sorry for him, at others he had me rolling around the floor laughing! It's a great Book and I would certainly recommend it to others, whether for the love of motorsports or simply for a motivational and entertaining read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Could be called how to overcome rejection, 2 April 2015

By 

Daniel Davies - See all my reviews

This review is from: Flat Out Flat Broke: The Original Stig (Kindle Edition)

Although it helps to be a petrol head to enjoy flat out fat broke I'm pretty sure anybody can take something from it because it's a tale of constantly overcoming rejection until you finally succeed. I wish I had that kind of never say die attitude. There are lots of laughs (shark attack gazette - I dont want to say more because I'll give it away - had me crying) and some sad times along the way but that just makes it very three dimensional. I will be re reading it soon!

This review is from: Flat Out Flat Broke: The Original Stig (Kindle Edition)

A great read funny, sad, describes the frustration experienced, high highs and low lows. If you think you know about grit and determination, read this and you actually knew very little. It will teach never ever ever give up on your dream.
