The hilarious and exhilarating true story of darts by the sport's true legend
Sid Waddell, 'The Geordie Lip', the Moses of the game, was born in Northumberland in 1940, the son of a miner. Having graduated with a degree in History from Cambridge University, he started out as a TV producer working on Indoor League in the early 1970s. This led to him receiving the back-handed compliment of being asked to be the BBC's lead commentator on all their major BDO televised darts tournaments. He worked for them in this capacity from 1978 to 1993 during which time he also penned the highly successful children's television series Jossy's Giants. Since 1993 he has worked for Sky Television and commentates on all major PDC televised darts tournaments.
"Wonderful" * The Times * "Sid Waddell's commentaries are the black puddings of sports reporting, savoury, hot and bursting with blood and guts" -- Nancy Banks-Smith * Guardian * "We are lucky to be alive in the era of Sid" -- Giles Smith * Daily Telegraph * "Entertaining ... an enjoyable and important read from the man who has been at the heart of many of the great moments in the history of the sport" * Independent * "A fascinating, well-structured, readable and at times hilarious history of modern darts" * Darts World *
