Barry Hearn: My Life : Knockouts, Snookers, Bullseyes, Tight Lines and Sweet Deals Hardback



Out now: the autobiography of the legendary sports promoter, Barry Hearn. THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER 'I am the largest sports promoter in the world.

I promote 11 sports to a global audience of billions of people every day of my life'__________A larger than life working class hero, Romford born and bred - always ready with the perfect soundbite - Barry Hearn was famously described as 'roguish but never a rogue'.

Hearn is credited with turning snooker into one of the biggest sports in Britain.

He essentially turned a sport in which competitors wear bowties into a massive, globally televised event.

Away from the table, his promotions empire casts its net over a dozen sports - from professional boxing to darts, fishing to ten-pin bowling - and his career spans four decades.

He also previously owned Leyton Orient football club.

Packed with hilarious anecdotes from the golden age of snooker, and behind-the-scenes insight into boxing negotiations and darts bust-ups, Hearn's book is a joy to read from start to finish.
