Matthew Syed, writer and former table tennis champion has received much praise for his book Bounce, The Myth of Talent and the Power of Practice, but nothing to match the latest accolade from Joey Barton, the bad boy of English football, who has told Le Parisien that he is re-reading the book. He laments “my sole regret is that I couldn’t have read it earlier in life, at 14-years-old – if I had, I’d be the Prime Minister today, not a footballer.”Tagged in: joey barton, Matthew Syed
