Bellies and Bullseyes: The Outrageous True Story of Darts
Bellies and Bullseyes is simply the best book you could have about the sport. It mixes Sid's own 'I was there' story with the entire story of darts. Sid knows all the stars as intimate friends and has been instrumental in the game's progress himself and his writing is as colorful as his commentary. Sid is something of a legend and since he started in the 70s has had more column inches than Richie Benaud and John Motson combined. The book covers everything from the early days of hustling in pubs and the 1960s money race pub competitions that spawned the likes of John Lowe and Eric Bristow, to the glory days of ITV's brilliantly daft Indoor League; from the bling of Bobby George and the belly of Jocky Wilson to Sid's part in the schism between the BDO and newly formed PDC; and the unsurpassed skills of today's master Phil 'The Power' Taylor.
