Book Description

18 April 2006
For ten years Danny Wallace has been coping with the despair and acute frustration that comes after being diagnosed with an incurable illness. The former Southampton, Manchester United and England winger, stricken by multiple sclerosis, has days when he can hardly move or talk. As a player, Wallace was famous for his blistering speed. Now, walking with his sticks for just a few hundred yards will often exhaust him. And yet here is a man who intends to complete the gruelling London Marathon, however long it takes him. Danny Boy is by turns harrowing and inspirational, both a wonderfully life-enhancing story of courage in the face of adversity.

5.0 out of 5 stars danny boy 4 Jan 2012
a superb and honest account by the former united winger.A great mix of football and life and an amazing account of how he copes with a terrible illness.Should silence the critics that labelled him a flop at O.T considering his time was short and blighted by injuries that were a preview of his awful affliction.He talks candidly about his battle with booze and how it affected his family and his sanity and also talks with great affection and love about his career in the english game.Modern players should read this and take note of how priveleged they are and if they are going to write a book....they could take some lessons in honesty and humility from Danny Wallace.
