This is one of the best football autobiographies out there. Definitely worth a read - whether you're a Rangers, Scotland, Everton, Hearts, Falkirk fan - or just a football nut that enjoys reading about the life of a top player. Obviously Davie is a legend - and has done amazingly well in his career - even after playing in the US until aged 21. I read as many football biogs/autobiogs as possible, and it's refreshing to have a book written intelligently and with depth - as opposed to something thrown together in the pub (Mr Savage for example :)) He goes into depth about life as a college 'soccer' player in the US, his amazing club and country career after returning to Scotland, and a really good look at what has kept him going until the ripe old age of 41. As i write this, Davie just announced yesterday that he's leaving Rangers and looking to keep playing on for a while longer. Don't be surprised if he pulls it off - and then ends up having a distinguished career in coaching/management afterwards. I've already put a bet on him becoming Scotland's manager one day! Those of us that still crave playing as much as possible - at whatever age and level - will be able to relate to Davie's story. I thought McManaman's book (El Macca) was great, and this is up there with that one for sure. So much better than most books out there. Would be a great gift for younger players looking to start a long career too. Nice one Davie.

A good read for any football fan. He has had an exceptional career and enjoyed reading about his take on things and other players, as well as hearing about what happened at his former clubs and with the Scotland national side.

Bought as a present for my Rangers-loving other half. Have read it myself: he truly is one of the game's good guys. His humility is an example to all the blinged up no-marks currently being overpaid up and down the land.
