I’ve recently finished a book which I’d like to recommend to you. “Talk don’t run” written by Paul Kimmage is an assemblage of interviews with various sport stars which the author did for the “The Sunday Times” during the years 2002 and 2009.
Paul Kimmage has spoken to stars like Tony Adams, Boris Becker, Flavio Briatore, David Coulthard, Sir Geoff Hurst, Sir Jackie Stewart, Eddie Jordan, Jenson Button, Rafael Nadal, Pete Sampras, also the former Liverpool FC player Stan Collymore and many more!
The author understands it like none other to speak with the sportsmen and women and disclose their secrets, desires and decision they made in the past. In this book, Kimmage is giving some very interesting answers on questions which a sport fan always wanted to get answered, and also describes some details about the sportsman/woman which the reader often didn’t know. I can only recommend this book.
Paul Kimmage(born 7 May 1962 in Dublin, Ireland) was a professional cyclist before he turned to journalism, twice competing in the Tour de France. His book Rough Ride is widely acknowledged to be the most honest account of life in the professional ranks. He has been named Sports Interviewer of the Year at the past five Sports Journalists’ Association awards.
