Synopsis This is the remarkable story of how Kelvin Kerkow overcame a debilitating illness as a child to become one of the most successful lawn bowlers in Australia, and indeed the world. The book describes how Kelvin rose through the ranks, recounts his greatest victories and reveals some of the secrets of his success. It also includes Kelvin's Coaching Clinic and a 'tell all' behind-the-scenes look at the world of bowls with some startling revelations!

Above all, this is an entertaining read by a sportsman who has achieved dizzy heights but has his feet still firmly planted on the ground.
