            Let me tell you about Alex by John Virgo - nothing majorly new in the book but a reasonable read

              My favorites are the Clive Everton book mentioned above, and Steven Hendrys. I had Hendrys on audiobook, read by him, and that format would be my recommendation if you can get it (free trial on audible would get you it for free). I also like Jimmy's first- behind the white ball, but not the second- second wind. The second was not as well written, and many of the stories seemed sugar coated. His reflections on his own behaviours came across as disingenuous to me, and at times he was almost apologetic, which didn't tally with how I read him when he speaks in person.

                  Will he call it "Swallow this"? Not that I'm a Higgins hater, I just can't resist a good pun.

                  I have read "Running" by ROS, I didn't really like it. I don't like modern ghost written autobiographies though, so you may still enjoy it.

                    Just finished Stephen Hendry 'Me and the Table' great insight to the 'King' thoroughly enjoyed it, Prob the only snooker book I will ever read though since I've always admired Stephen since he was a wee lad.
