Millions know him as a loudmouth radio shock-jock and Sun columnist.
Yet, in his life Jon Gaunt has had to overcome unimaginable hardship, solitude, bankruptcy and despair.
His mother died suddenly when he was just twelve, his hard-drinking, womanising father abandoned him to suffer appalling treatment in a children's home.

Undaunted, Jon Gaunt has always fought back. Behind the outspoken media personality, this is the very human story of self-preservation, personal growth and forgiveness, told in Jon's inimitable forthright style.
