Synopsis

STEPHEN HENDRY became the youngest professional snooker player in 1985 aged 16 and, in 1990, he was the youngest ever snooker World Champion, at the age of 21.



Widely regarded by fans and pundits alike as one of the greatest players of all time in the sport, over a 27-year career, Hendry went on to win the World Championship seven times, and was snooker's world number one for eight consecutive seasons between 1990 and 1998. Hendry retired in 2012 with a record-breaking seven World Champion titles under his belt, a record that remains to this day. He's now ready to tell his life story for the first time - from a childhood spent climbing the ranks of the sport, through the highs of the '90s and lows of the 2000s, to his life now as a sports pundit and commentator.



With an insight into the world of the man behind the cue, and what made him such a top-class player, this is the definitive autobiography of the legend that is Stephen Hendry.

STEPHEN HENDRY was born in Edinburgh, Scotland in 1969 and in 1984, at the tender age of 15, Hendry became the youngest Scottish amateur snooker champion in history. He turned professional the following year, and when he won the Grand Prix in 1987, he became the youngest player to win a tournament. At the end of the 1989-90 season, Hendry, at 21 years 106 days, topped Jimmy White 18-12 to become the youngest world champion ever. He claimed the number one ranking in 1990 and held it until White defeated him at the world championship in 1998. From March 1990 to January 1991, Hendry won 5 straight titles and 36 consecutive matches to post the longest unbeaten string in the sport's history. Hendry was setting records, winning a record seven titles during his career and dominating the game throughout the 1990s. In 2012 he retired suddenly following his loss in the quarterfinals of the snooker world championship and has since cemented his career as a snooker pundit as well as a legend in the sport.
