Running Summary

Running: The Autobiography by Ronnie O'Sullivan

World Snooker Champion Ronnie O'Sullivan's frank and honest account of his astonishingly dramatic life.

I used to rely on drugs and alcohol to keep me going, but now I've got the healthiest addiction going - running.

This book explains how running has helped me to fight my demons - my addictive personality, depression, my dad's murder conviction, the painful break-up with the mother of my children - and allowed me to win five World Snooker Championships.

It is also about all of the great things in my life - my kids, snooker, my dad's release from prison, great mates who have helped me, and the psychiatrist Dr Steve Peters, who has taught me how not to run away when things get tough.

Finally, it's about what it's like to get the buzz - from running, from snooker, from life. Because when it comes down to it, everyone needs something to drive them on.

Running Reviews

The running is literal as well as metaphorical...it's a heartbreaking story * THE METRO *
Running is a chaotic race through O'Sullivan's life, but this does little to dethrone him as the people's champion - it simply adds further to his legend. * PRESS ASSOCIATION *
When he starts talking about snooker and his rivals, he is fascinating. Yet it wasn't snooker that ended up saving from the booze and drugs - it was distance running. * THE DAILY TELEGRAPH *
At snooker, O'Sullivan is easily the best in the world. At running, he is club class...His frank memoir, which reads like a transcript from the psychiatrist's coach, explains that running - and the running community - gave him a sense of acceptance and achievement. * THE SUNDAY TIMES *
Like a lot of shy people, he can look arrogant and aloof when he is performing, while underneath there's turmoil. * DAILY MAIL *
