An enjoyable read full of interesting facts about Phil "The Power" Taylor who made history in the World of Darts. I found it thoroughly easy to read and was quite surprised with the background in which he grew up which explains why Phil Taylor is a hard worker.
The book captures the high's and the low's of his career. From starting off when Eric Bristow sponsoring him, winning his first World Championship, to his darkest hour when he was charged with assault and to present day. It is also interesting to learn about the dispute between the British Darts Organisation and the Professional Darts Corporation (what was formerly the WDC) and how it affected the lives of darts players on all sides.
Phil covers events from some legendary matches and there are some nice stories about some of the players also. We get the run up to his televised nine dart finish and also read about Team Taylor.
Overall you'll find yourself turning over the pages of this book with ease.
