Eye of the Hurricane details a sad but uplifting story of a man who had everything to play for but now has to play hard for anything he can get. It describes Higgins, sitting fitfully on snookers sidelines, still has a story to tell, another controversy to spark. Author John Hennessey promises a wart and all account of Alex Higgins life and that is precisely what he delivers in this thoroughly absorbing book. . . well-told but cautionary tale of how narr ow the line is between genius and insanity This first proper account of Higgins life is all the more clear-eyed for being written without his co-operation.
