Behind the loudmouth radio shock-jock and foaming-at-the-mouth columnist in the Sun, Jon Gaunt has overcome unimaginable abuse, solitude, bankruptcy and despair. Jon's mother died suddenly when he was just eleven. His hard-drinking, womanising father deserted him and Jon found himself in a children's home. At twenty-five, Jon's self-made business had a million pound turnover, only for a stroke of fate to cause him to lose everything. Undaunted, Jon Gaunt has always bounced back and is now a hugely successful radio and newspaper commentator. This is Jon's story of self-preservation, personal growth and forgiveness, told in his inimitable straight-talking style.
Jon Gaunt is a multi-award winning broadcaster and presents his own show on talkSPORT. He is a very popular TV pundit on Sky Breakfast and writes a weekly column for the Sun.
