When Graeme Dott won the World Snooker Championship in 2006 it should have been the highlight of his career. It was what he had worked for all his life, but Alex Lambie, his mentor and father-in-law, had cancer and only had months to live. Alex died at the end of 2006 and, incredibly, Dott's snooker went from strength to strength. Away from the table, his life was falling apart. He didn't know it, but he was suffering from severe depression. Just when he thought things couldn't get any worse, his wife Elaine suffered a cancer scare. She was pregnant at the time and although she was given the all-clear, she lost the baby. Dott was in a bad place and his snooker eventually suffered too and he plunged down the rankings. He eventually faced his demons and, fully recovered, reached the final of the 2010 World Championship. In this inspirational autobiography, Graeme Dott talks for the first time in detail about his depression and about how he has managed to turn his life around. He describes his childhood in one of the toughest parts of Glasgow, tells of his love for Glasgow Rangers and about his snooker career and the part Alex Lambie paled in making his dreams come true. His deep love for Elaine and his children, Lewis and Lucy emerges in this story of a man who almost lost everything he worked for.
