Ronnie O'Sullivan's supreme talent and style have made him Britain's best-loved snooker champion. At 17, he became the youngest winner of a world-ranking tournament, and in 2001 he confirmed his legendary status by winning the Embassy World Title. His autobiography details more than the sporting triumphs of a man the BBC speculates "could become the world's greatest ever." It also tells of the boy who was introduced to legendary snooker clubs at an impossibly early age, of the teenager whose life was decimated when his father and mentor was sent to prison for life, and of the man dubbed the "genius" of the modern game who regularly threatens to quit the sport to pursue other interests.

Ronnie O'Sullivan reflects on how much of his life has been spent running away or running towards (often inadvisable) things. When he was young, snooker was a way of running away from school and the expectations of childhood.
