Fascinating and rather uplifting... This is a singularly well-written sporting autobiography.
In his enjoyable autobiography, Running My Life, Coe goes some way towards dispelling the myths. A combination of Olympic success, allied to political nous, made Coe a perfect candidate to run the campaign for the London Olympics. And what a success he made of it.
Fast-paced, lively and packed with anecdotes.
It's a proper autobiography in that it begins at the beginning...Coe's direct prose drives this engrossing book.
