On 5 April 2008, Timmy Murphy won the Grand National on the Comply Or Die. In this revised and updated edition of his acclaimed autobiography "Riding the Storm", Murphy tells the story of a man who pursued his dream and fulfilled it. Blessed with a rare talent for riding horses, he stumbled his way towards the very top of his profession. However, on 23 July 2002, it looked all over for him when the cell door closed behind him at Wormwood Scrubs. The years spent slowly carving out a career as a Jumps jockey had all been for nothing. All blown away in one moment of alcohol-induced madness. His account of his time inside is frighteningly stark - the regrets, the shame and the fear. He tells of starting all over again with nothing but his extraordinary talent intact. And he tells of the remarkable chain of events that led to him landing one of the top jobs in National Hunt racing, culminating in his convincing victory in the 2008 Grand National.
