A riveting and dramatic account of a battle to reach the top in sport and a warning that - no matter how successful you are - you never know what's around the corner. When Graeme Dott won the World Snooker Championship in 2006 it should have been the highlight of his career. But Alex Lambie, his mentor and father-in-law, had cancer and only had months to live. At the end of 2006 Alex died; incredibly Dott's snooker went from strength to strength, but away from the table things were a different story. Dott's wife Elaine suffered a cancer scare and despite being given the all-clear she lost the baby she was carrying. As things went from bad to worse Dott was unwittingly suffering with severe depression, and eventually he slipped down the rankings. In 2010, having faced his demons, he reached the final of the 2010 World Championship. In this inspirational autobiography Graeme talks for the first time about his depression and how he managed to turn his life around. He describes in detail growing up in one of the toughest parts of Glasgow, his snooker career and the role Alex Lambie played in making his dreams come true.
