    Inhaltsangabe

    Watch My Back is the story of one man's search for courage. Depressed, bullied, intimidated by life and indoctrinated to believe that this was his lot, Geoff Thompson, on the verge of a breakdown, decided to fight back. In a bid to confront his fears, he took a job as a bouncer in one of Britain's roughest nightclubs. Over the next 10 years, he was involved in hundreds of brutal and bloody fights that left two of his friends murdered and many more in prison. Geoff reached the top of his trade and became addicted to violence. Then it all changed.

    After nearly being killed in a gang attack, and almost killing one of his attackers, he was forced to reassess his relationship with violence. After writing down his experiences, Geoff discovered a flair for writing.

    This is the story of an ordinary man who faced his fears and took himself from bedsit to best seller but very nearly got killed on the way. Geoff Thompson is now the author of over 30 books, a stage play and a BAFTA-winning short film. This book is now a major motion picture: Clubbed.

    Amüsant und lehrreich im Bereich der Türsteherei

    Ich habe die deutsche Fassung vor zwei Jahrzehnten gelesen und höre jetzt das englische Hörbuch. Es ist sehr lustig, weil der Sprecher mit seinem Dialekt und seiner Onomatopoesie ("BÄÄÄÄM!") die ohnehin amüsante Geschichte noch packender macht. Man lernt einiges über die Psyche ziemlich kaputter Menschen und über den Autor selbst, der nicht weniger kaputt war oder ist. Übrigens ist auch das Buch "Die Angst" von Thompson empfehlenswert, da es darin um die Überwindung von Angst und Panik durch Training und Konfrontation geht.

    Surprisingly great book

    I knew of Geoff Thompson through the 3 second fighter book that I bought about 20 years ago from the Loompanics catalogue...So I thought I’d give this book a try as I saw it by accident. Having been an avid reader all my live I was really surprised at how great this book is! This will be one of my all time favorites...I loved the deep content the style and the wit- and it made me laugh out more than once - and also winced a couple of times- Well narrated also- you won’t regret reading/listening to this if you’re interested in the story of a man going to extremes to overcome his fears
