Playing On Their Nerves: The Sport Experiment


An investigation of mental breakdown deliberately induced in front of vast audiences based on interviews with leading international sportsmen. “Surely the purpose and effect of high-level sport has never been put under such a powerful microscope.” - Sunday Express. “Miss Patmore’s book is a pretty definitive study on the one hand - and a bedside indipper on the other. There is something riveting on most every page.” - Frank Keating, Guardian. Serialised in Penthouse illustrated by Ralph Steadman, Now! Magazine (cover story) and the Sydney Morning Herald. Selected for The Good Book Guide. “Has never been bettered in its field.” - Clive Everton, BBC snooker commentator.
