Summary

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 10-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.
