Ronnie O'Sullivan's supreme talent and style have made him the People's Champion. At 15, he became the youngest player to compile a recognised maximum break; at 17, he became the youngest winner of a world-ranking tournament; in 1997 he recorded the fastest 147 break in history; and in 2001 he confirmed his legendary status by winning the Embassy World Title. His autobiography details more than the sporting triumphs of a man the BBC speculates 'could become the world's greatest ever'. It also tells of the infant who was introduced to legendary snooker clubs at an impossibly early age, of the boy who was taking on and defeating all comers at 12 and frightening off the bookies in the process, of the teenager whose life was decimated when his father and mentor was sent to prison for life; of the man dubbed the 'genius' of the modern game who regularly threatens to quit the sport to pursue other interests.
