Ronnie comes across as intelligent, warm and human and the insight into professional snooker is fascinating. It is written in a very personal style - so you can almost hear him talking. For a snooker fan it's an unmissable book - its great to get his insight into the way other high profile snooker stars play. And what he has to say about handling all the problems life has thrown at him will be inspirational and helpful to many people.
Ronnie, if you read your reviews, thanks for such a great book and for all the years of brilliant snooker we have enjoyed watching.
But snooker is his living, and getting the balance of family life and work sounds difficult, more so than many outsiders would imagine. So having read this I have really warmed to Ronnie, in a way that makes you want to just sit in a pub chatting about running and other random stuff. He is constantly trying to find the best to solution to his so called demons, but always honest and never shying away from the truth, which you have to respect.
This book is very conversational in tone (it appears to be ghost written via audio interviews). The structure reflects Ronnie's rather rambling speaking style - I know envy the person in charge of editing! But if you settle into the idea that you're sat in the pub with the man, without the ability to speak or challenge him when he contradicts himself, it's great. And who wouldn't want to be sat in the pub with Ron?
It is based around his passion for running - a passion I do not share (!) - but he uses the subject to give us new insights into his past issues with drugs and alcohol, mental and physical health. Also, insights into his heroes, including his relationship with Damien Hirst and other Rock'n'Roll tales.
Another great section is on his moments of apparent madness, where he explains several public incidents that sparked strange rumours about him. If you're a Ronnie or snooker fan, give it a read. If you're not, skim through to the juicy parts.
