About this deal

Shaun catapulted to national prominence and recognition when, on the 5 th December 2004, he became the first black person to win the BBC’s renowned Mastermind. He has been a Criminal Defence Advocate now for nearly 34 years, and he has made a name for himself with regular appearances on British television quiz shows such as Fifteen-To-One, The Weakest Link, Greed, and Are You an Egghead? Read how Shaun’s passions have helped turn him into the man he is today: staunchly just and fair, ruthless when he needs to be, kind, fun, and a fiercely loyal friend. He has taken part in hearings held at both the Old Bailey as well as several magistrates' courts located in England and Wales and also in Scotland.

In June 2020, Wallace appeared as an assistant in Alan Carr's Epic Gameshow, for the " Take Your Pick! Since 2009, he has become a household name, regularly appearing as The Dark Destroyer on the smash ITV hit teatime quiz show, The Chase.

In the real and pragmatic world, that may be true, but given the person that I am and have always been, that will never prevent me from chasing what I have always aspired to.Read how Shauns passions have helped turn him into the man he is today: staunchly just and fair, ruthless when he needs to be, kind, fun, and a fiercely loyal friend. In Australia, he is known as "The Destroyer" owing to Australian concerns that the original nickname contained racial undertones, which Wallace himself disputed. The quiz sections are interesting if you are a quizzer but there is no mention of The Chase which is rather bizarre given the cover photo and blurb’s reference to it.

As Shaun himself describes in his book: This is my life’s journey over the course of my first forty eight years, a journey that from the outset, has been driven by a desire and a dream (that continues even to this day) of wanting to achieve, an ambition to succeed that is coupled with an idealistic goal of wanting to leave a legacy for others in the future to hopefully aspire to and surpass. I thought there was far too much detail about every aspect of his education, his football playing , and his progress as he commenced his career at the bar. Really enjoyed the first half, all About how he got to the Bar, but second half I'm struggling with getting into the Chase. This is a used book - there is no escaping the fact it has been read by someone else and it will show signs of wear and previous use.Read how Shaun’s passions have helped turn him into the man he is staunchly just and fair, ruthless when he needs to be, kind, fun, and a fiercely loyal friend.
