This review is from: Hunger: Sean Kelly: The Autobiography (Hardcover)
Unusually for a sports autobiography, this book gives you a real sense of the man. This is possibly because it is released some 20 years after he retired and there is an opportunity for perspective here. The character of Kelly comes through strongly as does the hard, dedicated life of a cyclist - largely devoid of glamour and sentiment, certainly at that time. For me, some of the best parts are Kelly's early years as an amateur. The "hunger" that forms the title here is evident, with a really well pitched opening chapter. Interestingly, very little commentary on the doping controversies of recent years. Definitely recommended for any cycling fans and a must for those with an interest in Sean Kelly.
