It's a fascinating read, there's so much you can relate to in today's snooker players. It's amazing to think he was so good he almost killed off the game because no one could compete with him and also to read about the "Big Five" billards players of the era and how they traded 1000 breaks like snooker players trade centuries. Lindrum ended up with over 700 of them, much like Hendry in snooker with centuries. And even though they were seen as the big five, Lindrum generally conceded 7000 points when he played the others because he was that much better.
