About this Book

Author: Rory O'Connor

Date Published: 25-Sep-2020

Nobody thought Rory O'Connor would make it. Written off as 'thick' at school, he struggled to find a career he felt he could succeed in. When a hot tip led to a win on the horses it was the beginning of a dangerous spiral into a gambling addiction that gnawed away at his self-esteem even further. How did the man who thought he had nothing to live for go on to become a stand-up comedian selling out venues around Ireland and reaching 800'000 people through his social media platforms? This is Rory's story. Told with his trademark humour, this straight-talking memoir is a book for anyone who wants to be inspired by an ordinary man's mental health journey.
