Description

This book is a fascinating and entertaining mixture of the history and characters of the darts world. It features player profiles, trivia - including players' walk-on music, quickest matches, longest matches, 9-dart finishes, the most loved and hated players and celebrity fans - as well as a treasure trove of statistical information. As such, all the tension, glory, complexity and irony of the `art of the arras' is portrayed. Funny, interesting and perplexing, the reader will smile, reminisce, laugh and occasionally experience bewilderment as the spirit of the oche is brought to life. The wit and skill of players is mixed with expressions of frustration, pain, confusion and anguish. Fighters, moaners, clowns and philosophers rub shoulders between the pages, creating an atmosphere that anyone who has either watched or played the game will recognise. With this book, Brian Belton hits the bullseye of a simple passion that has enjoyed a massive resurgence of popularity in recent years.show more
