MP by Sean Doherty
Book DescriptionMichael Peterson, or MP as he is commonly known, ruled the surfing scene throughout the early to mid-1970s. Despite Michael's brilliant success he was, unbeknownst to all, facing a tougher opponent than anything he would ever encounter in the surf. What many dismissed as introverted weirdness was, in fact, the early sign of paranoid schizophrenia, and Michael's battle with this disease would ultimately put an end to his flourishing career. As completely as he had dominated, MP disappeared from the surfing landscape. 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.
