4.0 out of 5 stars Haye delivers with no excuses, 27 Dec. 2011
This review is from: Making Haye: The Authorised David Haye Story (Hardcover)
This is a great bio written in the 3rd person. But it works and feels personal because the writer is close friend and confidante of the boxer.

Flaws I noticed were the scant photos which were black and white; it's a sports bio man, we want lots of photos that chart the athlete's career and life, not 4 or 5 random photos.

It has an authenticity about it by virtue of the liberal direct quotes taken from conversations involving the boxer, and Worsell has shown how it's done on that score. He has an engaging writing style that features liberal use of similes, analogies and metaphors to enrich his tale and which makes for a distinctive read.

Top marks for originality, a new way of doing an old thing. Well done Messrs Worsell and Haye.
