Black & White has snapped up rights to rugby legend and motor neurone disease campaigner Doddie Weir's latest book.
Following on from the success of the Scottish rugby legend’s autobiography, My Name'5 Doddie in autumn 2018, Black & White m.d. Campbell Brown has acquired world rights to the new book.
The World According to Doddie: An A-Z of Life and How to Live It by Weir and his longtime friend and sports journalist Stewart Weir, illustrated by Jonty Clark, will be published on 10th October 2019.
In The World According to Doddie, Weir "will offer up his mantra’s, motto’s and one-liners that have made us smile, chuckle and guffaw, while his unique outlook on life offers a fresh perspective on our own difficulties and challenging situations. More than once, Doddie has been told ‘he should write that down,’ or, ‘put that in a book’ – so now he has," said Black & White.
