    1. Fantastic book showcasing the highs and lows of a legendary darts player over a 12 month period in 2013-14 and giving an insight into his personal life.


    2. Not really a Fan of his but did enjoy this book a year in his life some bits were hard to get into but that could just be me.


    3. An enjoyable read which I managed to blast through pretty quickly. Nothing earth shattering, but well worth a read if you have an interest in darts. He tries to come across as a nice man, and plays the ‘old’ 53 year old granddad card very well, but it is easy to see that behind this is a man with great steel and determination. It was certainly interesting reading Phil’s views on his fellow competitors – Adrian Lewis, Michael van Gerwin, Barney, James Wade and the like. Not too much in th [...]


    4. This is a pretty decent account of exactly what it says in the title - the difficult year in Phil Taylor's career.It's not a stellar read and there's no sensational writing in it but it's interesting enough.

I don't really have much more to say about the book!


    5. A brilliant insight into The Power and a year in his darting career. Loved his list of 40 of the best Sid Waddell quotes.
