With a Foreword by ERIC BRISTOW, and an Introduction by PHIL 'THE POWER' TAYLOR. ANDY 'THE VIKING' FORDHAM IS A DARTS LEGEND AND ONE OF THE MOST POPULAR PLAYERS OF ALL TIME. HE BECAME A SUPERSTAR IN 2004, WHEN HE WON THE BRITISH DARTS ORGANISATION WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP. OVERNIGHT, THE NATION FELL IN LOVE WITH THIS LARGER-THAN-LIFE FIGURE, HIS BEARD, HIS LONG HAIR AND HIS CHARM. But behind the joyous celebrations, all was not well. Andy's drinking - a at least 25 bottles of beer a day - made his weight skyrocket out of control. He weighed 31 stone when he won the world title, and severe problems were building up. Over the next couple of years, his health deteriorated and his playing suffered a dramatic decline. In January 2007, Andy collapsed and nearly died. Then the seemingly impossible happened . . . For the first time in print, Andy tells his entire life story. With genial wit and gentle good humour, he combines beery anecdotes from the darts world with an honest, moving account of his severe health problems. Telling of the triumphs and the tears, the impact of his decline upon his family and his near-miraculous return to health, this is Andy Fordham in his own words, with nothing held back.
