If you feel your life has hit the buffers or you’re trapped on a hamster wheel that only seems to gather speed, you’re members of a popular club. Membership rules: your brain must resemble jelly and you feel like a failed circus juggler performing in the dark.

Motorcycling: The Ultimate Therapy evolved from a personal journey and is a road map explaining how to clear the fog and gain clarity in our lives. It demonstrates how we can become the air traffic controller, giving clear and explicit instructions to the pilot sitting in the cockpit of our minds; detailing by stepping back, how more can be achieved by doing less and how confidence through knowledge can increase self-belief, self-esteem and decision making.

A dedicated minimalist and accidental humorist, Neil lives with his partner, Helen, and their two pugs, Billy and Bella. His career path resembles a patchwork quilt, varied and interesting; travelling extensively; meeting incredibly fascinating and also prosaic people along the way. Previously a guitarist and songwriter in his spare time, he took up motorcycling in 2001, the freedom of which keeps him sane in an increasingly insane world. He turned to writing in 2015 and is busy writing a second book in his Ultimate series, with a third bubbling enthusiastically on the back burner.

    Motorcyclist or not this book is a must read! As a fair-weather rider, I spend most of my time on trains and more recently planes and found the book to be an ideal travel companion. Each chapter being relatable to most day-to-day aspects of life, offers a reminder, when you feel you are, ‘trapped on the hamster wheel’, the author refers to in this book, that no challenge is ever too great and jumping of the wheel can be easier than you think.

    The last time I read a book cover to cover in less than 24 hours was probably 20+ years ago, but that is exactly what I did with Neil's book.

    As a fellow motorcyclist (although I started when I was 16 rather than 40) I could relate to much of what Neil discusses and there were numerous occasions I sat there reading and nodding in agreement as I could relate.

    I like the fact that many of the chapters are quite short and so it was easy to put down for a short while and quickly pick up the thread again.

    An engaging, enjoyable and often humorous read which also makes you think about life in general. I look forward to reading Neil's next title.

  • Emma Snelson

    This book popped into my life at the right time!
    A great read, funny, with some sound advice and not in a preachy way!
    I thought about doing my bike license about 3 years back but never got round to it. This book has reignited my curiosity. Thank you, Neil!

    The Ultimate Therapy
    I've not read a book really since I left school sadly and that was many years ago.
    I finally got around to reading this book wasn't before long that I realised that book is more about life and one's attitude to it Neil brings all this home on the simplest of ways just by relating to the world of motorbikes, his words and thoughts are very true and applicable to many scenarios/ways of life !
    It's all about how we as mere mortals approach and react to life and all the good things/bad things it throws at us.

    I feel honoured and humbled to class this guy as a very close friend and riding buddy his written words are the way he is in himself
    Positive mental attitude, belief in himself and confident in his own abilities why you may ask well it's all in the book

    No way is this a biased review at all knowing the writer well
    But an honest review and belief in what's written

  • Carolyn

    I was given this book as a gift and I have to say it isn’t often that I read a book cover to cover in less than 2 days.
    It would have been quicker than that but work and home life got in the way !
    A great read from the first page to the last.
    I would recommend it to anybody, you do not have to be a Biker to read and enjoy it.
    Well done Neil, looking to more books.

  • Anthony

    I absolutely loved this book. It is a very easy read, peppered with lots of useful advice, suggestions, hints and tips. One can almost imagine the author chatting to you. I also enjoyed the wry sense of humour. I'm looking forward already to his next book
