Item description, condition report, payment options and related products below

First edition, first print hardback of TO BE HONEST WITH YOU: THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY by Linford Christie and published by Michael Joseph Ltd., London in 1995. Signed by Christie on the title page.

The book is in very good condition (Clean red cloth boards with gilt lettering on spine) with only slight wear to the pictorial dust jacket which is not price clipped (minor creasing to the spine edges and tiny nick to top corner). Internally, the pages are clean and tight and there are no tears and no other inscriptions. There is slight yellowing to the pages.

Linford Christie, captain of the British athletics team, is one of the best-known sports personalities in the world. A powerful and impressive sight in the arena, the 100-metre Olympic champion has captured the imagination of the public with his total determination and graceful style. Yet he remains something of an enigma; a hero who says exactly what he thinks without revealing a great deal about his own motivation. In To Be Honest With You he removes much of the mystery for the first time.

Linford's first love was football and it was only when he was picked for the school athletics team that running entered his life. Such was his natural ability that success came without too much effort, although the realixation eventually dawned that he would need to train hard to be the very best. Faced with a stark choice at the age of twenty-five -either commit or get out - he became serious. The stunning results put Linford Christie among the pantheon of truly great runners.

Success of this magnitude does not come easily. Along the way, Linford has been through as many clashes with the media as with his rivals. In To Be Honest With You he delivers frank opinions on the state of athletics today, the use of drugs, his treatment by the press and the quality of the opposition. He talks of his life both on and off the track, his fitness and technique, family and friends, finance and the future. But, most of all, he reveals just what goes through the mind of one of the greatest sprinters the world has ever seen as he steps into the blocks and prepares to cover 100 metres faster than anyone else.

It may take less than ten seconds but victory in the 100 metres is the result of years of intense dedication and hardship, satisfaction and elation. All of this, and more, is covered by To Be Honest With You, the most compelling book ever written by a top international athlete."

275 pages. Illustrated with colour and black & white photographs.
