This really is a fantastic audiobook.
An engrossing account of Stephen’s sporting and personal life which is totally compelling and made even more meaningful by Stephen narrating the book himself.
A definite must have book for any snooker or Stephen Hendry fan or anyone who appreciates an honest insight into a genuine sporting greats life story. Very highly recommended!

Big Frank is a national treasure and most boxing fans are aware of his battles inside of the ring.
This book chronicles his biggest battles outside of the ring which is an emotional and insightful rollercoaster
A good, honest, interesting journal of Franks struggle with his metal illness. My respect for him is huge.
However, what spoiled this audio book for me was the ridiculous narration.
The attempt of the narrator trying to sound like Frank was largely off-putting and at times was almost unbearable to listen to.
Would I recommend the book? Yes, definitely. However I would recommend buying the kindle/paperback version instead of the audiobook because in my opinion the style of narration lets it down big time.
