Steve Davis’ book Interesting has been short-listed for the Autobiography of the Year award at the 2016 Cross Sports Book Awards.
In the book, Davis tells the story of how he rose from humble beginnings to dominating snooker throughout the 1980s, winning six world titles.
He joins former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard, champion jockey AP McCoy, FIA President Max Mosley, former Lancashire cricketer and England Coach David Lloyd and 1992 Formula One Champion Nigel Mansell in the running for the literary prize.
All six nominees will hope to follow in the footsteps of Welsh rugby legend Gareth Thomas, who scooped the award in 2015. The winner will be announced at Lord’s on June 1.
David Willis, Chairman of the Cross Sports Book Awards said: “The judging panel have had a really difficult choice to choose six fantastic books. I look forward to seeing who wins the prize in June.”

Steve Davis – Interesting
Steven Gerrard – My Story
