The autobiography of the legendary sports promoter, Barry Hearn.

‘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 listen to from start to finish.
