This review is from: Behind the White Ball: My Autobiography (Hardcover)
Overall I found this a dissapointing read. The book should have been entitled 'Jimmy The Lad' as the contents focus repeatedly on Jimmy's ongoing drinking binges and dissapearing escapades throughout his illustrious career. The book from the outset descends to a series of haphazardly written anecdotes detailing Jimmy's adventures throughout the eighties and nineties, but despite this the reader is never quite aware at what point in time his anecdotes are occurring . I bought with the expectation of reading about the some of Jimmy's great clashes down through the years with the likes of Higgins and Hendry. Little reference is made to such and I found myself constantly frustrated at having to digest another drinking binge story.
