Snooker legend Clive Everton pens new book on Ronnie O’Sullivan

Legendary snooker broadcaster and author Clive Everton has penned a new book detailing the highs and lows of five-times world champion Ronnie O’Sullivan.

Everton, who has worked as a snooker commentator for several decades and as the editor of Snooker Scene magazine, has announced his new upcoming biography of arguably snooker’s best player of all time which is titled ‘Simply The Best’.

The book is expected to hit the shelves in October and is priced at around £18.99.

According to the book’s publishing firm Pitch Publishing, the title follows O’Sullivan’s record-breaking title exploits of 2018 which saw him win five ranking events in a single season.

A description of the book reads: “In 2018, ‘Rocket’ Ronnie O’Sullivan further cemented his position as one of snooker’s all-time greats by claiming his record-breaking seventh Masters title. Next, he equalled Steve Davis’s six UK Championships, drawing level with Stephen Hendry’s 18 Triple Crown titles.

“Now is the perfect time for his story to be told by Clive Everton – ‘The Voice of Snooker’ – who has known Ronnie throughout his illustrious and, at times, controversial career.

“Simply the Best traces Ronnie’s course from carefree junior prodigy to deeply troubled and depressed adult, and so to maturity and self-knowledge.”

Last year Everton, 81, was inducted into World Snooker’s Hall of Fame – becoming the first broadcaster or journalist to do so.

Last week seven times world snooker champion Stephen Hendry released his new autobiography, titled ‘Me and The Table’.
