Sebastian Coe always loved to run. After his first official run at the age of 12 his talent was clear, and soon his father famously became his coach - his groundbreaking coaching style and Seb's natural talent led him all the way to the top. 'Seb Coe - The Autobiography' is the inside story of that remarkable rise. After retirement, Seb became an MP, and was later William Hague's chief of staff. And then, in 2004, Seb became chairman of London's bid to host the Olympic Games in 2012. He was created a life peer in 2000, and was appointed Knight Commander of the Order of the British Empire in the 2006 New Year's Honours List for services to sport.

Fascinating and rather uplifting... This is a singularly well-written sporting autobiography. -- The Sunday Times In his enjoyable autobiography, Running My Life, Coe goes some way towards dispelling the myths. A combination of Olympic success, allied to political nous, made Coe a perfect candidate to run the campaign for the London Olympics. And what a success he made of it. -- The Times Fast-paced, lively and packed with anecdotes. -- Daily Express A well-timed autobiography from a true British great. -- Sun Running My Life is far from the self-congratulatory account one might expect. Charting his rise from a Sheffield secondary modern to double Olympic champion, multiple record-holder, politician and inspirational leader behind the successful Games, he reveals a personality far more amusing and unpretentious than his smooth public image would suggest. -- Independent on Sunday It's a proper autobiography in that it begins at the beginning...Coe's direct prose drives this engrossing book. -- Daily Telegraph
