This book is a MUST for anyone who remembers Alex as the Hurricane ; as the man who set the game on fire.

Alex was always a man of courage and determination, albeit that this determination sadly spilled over into excesses. Alex shows the ultimate courage in this book, honestly recognising that he made mistakes in his life. And hey, who hasn't ?

Alex's career came before the big money was attracted to snooker. Nevertheless, the big money came because of players like Alex, who electrified audiences with shots that no one could believe were possible.

Unfortunately, players today are so focused on the big prize money, that the style, sponteneity and excitement of the Hurricane are but moments to relish in history.

The chapter dedicated to the late Oliver Reed gives an insight into the friendship between two extraordinary characters of our time.

As with all honest biographies, the truth comes at a price ; perhaps paid in terms of image. Whatever the price to Alex for being so honest, the truth he has told will speak to many and not just snooker fans.
