Interviews with Inspiration : Heroes and Icons... and What Drives Them to Succeed Hardback



Interviews with Inspiration is a forensic study of what it means and what it takes to be outstanding in the world of sport.

It is written by world number one squash player and Commonwealth gold medallist James Willstrop; throughout his squash career he continuously 'did what it took', both physically and mentally, to reach the highest levels - often to unnecessary and somewhat damaging lengths.

James talks to some of the sporting and cultural figures who inspired him and reflects on what they do and what drives them to do it.

As well as profiling some great athletes of our time, he also delves into the worlds of writing, theatre, and even eye surgery: exploring parallels and differences that exist when people do things across the highest levels.

Interviews with Inspiration provides a fascinating insight into a cross-section of icons and achievers, from the viewpoint of one of the most successful English athletes of a generation.
