This is the autobiography of Eddie the Eagle, whose incredible life inspired the hit film starring Hugh Jackman, Taron Egerton, and Christopher Walken.

Short and stocky, sporting thick glasses prone to fogging, Eddie was nobody's athletic ideal. Through struggle, sacrifice, even near-starvation this British plasterer made his dream a reality: competing in the 1988 Olympic Games in Calgary. Here, in his own words, is Eddie's story from the schoolboy stunts that developed his physical courage, to the menial labor that paid for training, to the qualifying jumps that had millions around the world glued to their television sets to watch him.

Eddie the Eagle is the tale of an ordinary man's extraordinary journey above and beyond expectations . . . a journey that rocketed this ultimate underdog to an Olympic legend.
