MP: The Life Of Michael Peterson
MP: The Life Of Michael Peterson
MP: The Life Of Michael Peterson by Sean Doherty Michael Peterson, Also known as MP ruled the surfing scene throughout the early to mid-1970's. Despite Michael's great success he was not known by the public, facing a tougher opponent than anything he'd ever encounter in surfing. What many dismissed as introverted weirdness was in fact the early sign of paranoid schizophrenia. Michael's battle with this disease would put an end on his great career. As completely as he had dominated, MP disappeared from the surfing landscape, and now, after so many years of obscurity, he tells what is truly Australian surfing's great untold story. MP: The Life of Michael Peterson covers everything from Peterson's early life with an abusive stepfather, to his celebrated victories in numerous surfing competitions, to his descent into the drug scene, his imprisonment and subsequent institutionalisation. With a foreword written by former surfing world champion and MP's lifelong friend Peter Townend, and tributes written by surfing legends Kelly Slater, Rabbit Bartholomew, Nat Young and Barton Lynch among others, this is the only authorised biography of MP, as told to Tracks magazine editor, Sean Doherty.
