Ray Martin needs no introduction. Well known as the face of the Midday Show, A Current Affair, 60 Minutes, and Carols by Candlelight; if you trust anyone on Australian television, you trust Ray Martin. But not many people know the real story behind Ray'srise to stardom. His was an improvised childhood; his world as far away from Hollywood and movie stares and the bright lights as is possible to imagine. Before he had even got to high school, Ray had lived in thirteen different places, in three Australian states, mostly in the bush. His father was a voilent, drinking man who would lash out at his wife and children, ultimately forcing Ray's mother to uproot the family across to the otherside of Australia to escape him. Far from being crushed by his difficult childhood, though, Ray drew strength from his remarkable mother and sisters, and developed an irrepressible sense of humour. Here, now, in his own words, is the long awaited, warts-and-all autobiography of Ray Martin: his exceptional career, his happy marriage to Dianne and his lasting love affair with the people of Australia. Funny, Thought-provoking and inspiring, this is the most compelling autobiography you will read this year. The man who has interviewed everyone-- from Lauren Bacall to Jennifer Lopez; from Paul Newman to Elton John; from train robber Ronald Biggs to British royalty and even cricketing royalty, Don Bradman  - is finally telling his own story.
