Product Description

When Bobby George first appeared on the darts scene, he immediately caught the eye: well built (he was the only darts player ever to be approached to take part in TV's Superstars), good looking and with plenty of bling, he was a natural showman. He could play a bit too, as he showed by reaching the final of the world championship in both 1980 and 1994. But that is only the beginning of the story.



Before the darts came his time as a doorman at various East End pubs and bars just after the era of the Krays and Richardsons, when baseball bats and knuckle dusters would often come in handy. He also helped build the Victoria line. Since he retired from full-time darts, he has appeared in gangster films such as Dog, on TV programmes such as Celebrity Fit Club, and in videos with The Streets.



Now best known as a commentator on the BBC, George relives the excitement of the last thirty years of the world of darts, with plenty of insider gossip and stories about all the most famous players in the TV era of the sport.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bling when you're winning 20 Feb 2007
Format:Hardcover
If Charles Dickens were alive today 'Bobby Dazzler' would be one of his masterpieces. The story of a young man born to East-End poverty, who works his jacobs off to earn a crust in the tough world of nightclubbouncing and windowcleaning. This rags to riches tale sees the 'king of bling' first pick up an arrow at the age of 30 and months later be catapulted into the heady world of professional darts. A must read for fans of darts and cheeky cockney chappies alike.

I'd recommend it and give it 180!

2.0 out of 5 stars Mediocre... 19 April 2011
By Andy
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I found the first half of the book very interesting and its obvious he had a tough upbringing and is an extremely hard worker and dedicates himself 100% to anything he puts his hands to, but all this has made for an incredibly swelled opinion of himself and an extreme over exagguration of his achievemnts to the point that it becomes a bit sickening to read, most Darts players have big egoes, it can be a huge help to their game and can help combat nervousness but this book takes it to a whole new level. Eric Bristow had one of the biggest egoes of all but i found i couldnt put his book down from start to finish and would recommend to anyone looking to read into the life of a pro dart player to go for his!!
