Rocky Taylor is Britain's most famous stuntmen, having worked in everything from James Bond to Indiana Jones to Titanic.

He worked alongside some of the greats, including Roger Moore, Ray Winstone, Sean Connery, Pierce Brosnan and Harrison Ford.

Still active today, Rocky is not only a favourite with those he's worked with but also with the fans who have followed his career.

Book synopsis for Jump Rocky Jump by Rocky Taylor together with Jon Auty


Jump, Rocky, Jump tells the remarkable story of Britain's most famous stuntman, Rocky Taylor, who fell into stunt work and landed on his feet.

Whether downstairs or up gantries, burning like stubble or as a stunt double for Hollywood royalty, Rocky Taylor has been falling ever since.

But he hits the ground running every time, screen-punching famous faces and treating audiences worldwide to near-death experiences - only one of which, thanks to an infamous director, became all too horribly real.

Now readers have a chance to jump with Rocky and keep up, if they can, with the motorbike skids and the martial arts, the car-rolls and the swashbuckling, past and present.

Whether your interest is professional or light-hearted, Rocky Taylor's life in film, TV and charity work will inform and entertain you as only an insider's eye can: showing you how stunts should be done and what hits the fan when they aren't.
