Product Description

Review

Astonishing...goalkeeper, coach, broadcaster and brilliant chronicler of his family history, Wilson is one of those inspirational figures. (Daily Telegraph)

A fascinating and deeply affecting story. (Independent)

This is the autobiography of a brave goalkeeper and an even braver man... its power is more concentrated due to the welcome absence of a ghostwriter. (Time Out)

Absorbing and uplifting. (Evening Standard)

Easily the best footballer's autobiography around this season. It is unusual among its peers in that the former Arsenal goalkeeper wrote it himself. (Daily Telegraph)

A compelling story...Wilson is an articulate spokesman for the enduring honour of the game. (The Scotsman)

There are two chapters so riveting that they must surely put him in the starting blocks for the upcoming William Hill Sports Book of the Year citation (Daily Mail)

Book Description

Shortlisted for the William Hill Award, the most highly-acclaimed sports biography of 2003 becomes a paperback bestseller for summer 2004.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book not for the football story, but to learn more about the man. It is his family story which is so moving and particularly the story which so few will know about - his two elder brothers who both served in the RAF in WW2 and who were both killed in action; their story is poignantly told, as is their mother's visit to her sons' graves - painful stuff to read, but also contrasted with a young child's reaction. Their loss and example has obviously been a guiding light in Wilson's subsequent determination as can be seen from the rest of the book.
