Iron Man, Hardback


As a young man, Paddy Doyle was as tough as they came.

By his early teens he was a British judo champion, pushing himself to the peak of fitness and endurance.

His fiercely competitive nature and rebellious temperament landed him in trouble with the law.

A hard drinker and a troublemaker, he ended up being banned from numerous haunts in Birmingham.

Yet his passion for sports and fitness saved him. After a spell in prison he turned his life around and went from backstreet brawls to breaking records.

A chance purchase of "The Guinness Book of Records" spurred him to action - he knew that he could beat, hands down, many of the records listed.

Paddy's alter ego, "Iron Man", was born and he was on a mission to leave no feat unaccomplished.

This is the tale of a man whose mental and physical determination to succeed have led him to glory.

It is the true story of his journey from the backstreets of Birmingham to the success of a world champion who refused to give up.
