Product description

From the Back Cover

Funny, sad and uplifting, Shot and a Ghost is the story of one extraordinary year in the life of top squash player James Willstrop.

In a unique insight, Willstrop pulls no punches on the demands of being one of England's top squash players: the globe-trotting, the loneliness and the tremendous highs and lows.

A must for any sports fan, Willstrop reveals his inner-most thoughts as he attempts to progress from a medal-laden junior career to winning the sport's greatest prizes.

He talks candidly about playing world-class sport as a vegan, his off-court relationships with his girlfriend and father, the rigorous training and the problems he faced carrying on after the death of his mother from cancer.

About the Author

James Willstrop was born in Norfolk in 1983 before moving to Yorkshire. He is a former world junior champion, became world No 1 in the January 2012 rankings and has won over 80 caps for England. He writes a regular column for the Yorkshire Evening Post.

Rod Gilmour is a sports journalist at The Daily Telegraph. He has written on squash since 2008 and will relish the day when the IOC vote the sport onto the Olympic programme.
