Fantastic read. Get to hear it from the horses mouth., 28 Oct. 2013
I have really enjoyed this book. Don't believe the rumours and other people's opinions , read it straight from Ronnie himself. He has been wrongly labelled and criticised for some of his 'antics' in terms of him walking from snooker matches etc.. You get to hear all the background and you can't blame him. I can't relate with having a parent imprisoned but I can relate to a lot of it. It is interesting for any snooker fan and Ronnie fan but you would have to have a very hard heart not to be moved by elements in the book and indeed being empathetic to a total genius of his craft who tried to keep everything ticking over but humans can only take so much. He might be in the spotlight but he is far from wanting to be a celebrity himself and he is a very down to earth bloke. Top read. It is especially recommended from a psychological point of view it could be seen as uplifting as he reveals his depression , addictions etc.. and he seems to be really finding himself again which is so great to see. I've always given Ronnie my empathy from a fan point of view because having suffered significant psychological distress myself and his behaviours have been true to these impairments. Hope others enjoy the book! Keep going Ronnie!!
