My Life to Excess

Bob’s follow-up book to The Road to Deca re-lives his triathlon career from a totally different perspective, as well as charting his Run across Australia in 2001, his victory in the 2004 Run across America and his world record solo run across the European Union in 2005, and numerous other epic races and extreme challenges. 

More importantly, this book is not just about sport but Bob’s struggles within himself over the years. Recently diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome, Bob recalls how he has felt different and isolated all his life and talks candidly about his related battles with depression and alcoholism. A gripping, must-read book.


“Not at all the book I was expecting from Bob! I was expecting one purely about his sporting life. Instead he tells us all, very candidly, about his whole life, including all the ups and downs. He has been extremely brave sharing his problems and insecurities with us, as well as all his sporting achievements. A must-read for everyone, not just sports people.”
