From the Author
This was my first book and, as such, the finished result was
However, I must point out that I only had three months in which to write it
and my remit was to produce a bog-standard biography of Shearer which
covered the essential elements of his illustrious career.
A paperback version, with amended sections and additional material, is due
out in May 2007.

Yes, it relies heavily on newspaper articles and not so much on accounts from Shearer's mates/schoolfriends/teachers etc, but most of the quotes are colourful and insightful.
However, I note that a paperback of the book is due out soon, and I'd be inclined to go for that rather than the hardback as it will be updated, I assume.
Hard to find much more to say about this man, whose life and career have already been so well-documented. Worth a read, but there will be no surprises in this book. A bit like Wor Al, actually.
