Leo Houlding… “Written with devoted passion and brutal honesty, Full of Myself lays bare Johnny's bipolar mix of privilege and pain, wizardry and dysfunction. Master of friction and maestro of momentum on rock and road, orchestrator of contemporary climbing techniques such as the dead-point and dyno, the living embodiment of poetry in motion turns his hand to the pen with great effect.”
"It's brilliant - frank, funny, telling his full life and not just climbing. A great read from cover to cover" Sir Chris Bonnington
