They called him the maestro, the magician, the man with the golden cue. This is the story of an Australian icon: Horace Lindrum. The original Boy from Down Under. Lindrum's calling into the world of Billiards was marred by tragedy, war, family upheavals, and controversy. But nothing was going to stop him from securing 'the crown'. The Uncrowned King is an intensely human story. A story that captures the spirit of success, the tribulations of a truly extraordinary life and the metal of a man who epitomises the Australian way. A must read book.
