Format: Hardcover
In this book Paul Gascoigne tells a harrowing tale of never growing up and being taken advantage of. Fron his humble upbringing through football, drugs, alcohol, scandal and humiliation he has maintained his love for football. A well told life story with what seems to be little sensationalisation by the writer Hunter Davies.
A cracking read.

Format: Hardcover
Being a big football fan I couldn't wait to read this account of the life (so far) of the most talented player of my generation. The book starts with stories of humble beginnings and stories of rucks and scrapes in a childhood that was soon overtaken with tragedy. Tragic though some of the incidents are, you can't help feeling that he's pushing these accounts through as some sort of excuse for his behaviour later in life. Once we're into the career at Spurs and England the pace livens up and we get some honest accounts of some 'infamous' Gazza moments, some of it quite funny others again quite sad in a tragic sense of the word. By the end of the book it's difficult to decide how you view him on the one hand the most talented player of his generation with a tragic background, on the other the man who had it all and blew it.

10 of 11 people found the following review helpful By Lumpster VINE VOICE on 9 Aug. 2004
Format: Hardcover
Being 32, I never got the chance to see what George Best could do on the football pitch. However, I grew up in the Gazza era and, to me, he is an undisputed talent and perhaps the most natural footballer I've ever seen play.
This book is a no-holds-barred account of his life. Some of the stories are incredibly funny to the point of making you hysterical; other stories are tragic and so sad that the book almosts reduces you to tears. But that basically sums up Gazza's life perfectly - he didn't do things by halves and was always a player who split opinion.
The book itself is no literary masterpiece but, then again, it doesn't pretent to be. It's an easy read, extremely interesting and delightfully honest. And despite all the stupid things he's done, you can't help loving the man himself even more after having read it.
Criticisms? Well the last couple of years of his life are given fairly light coverage and the book definitely falls away a bit towards the end, but overall it's good stuff and a compelling read. All the best Gazza!!

Format: Paperback
From the first page to the last this book grabs you by the short & curlies. It is written in a conversational style, as you read it you can imagine Gazza in a pub, glass in hand reminisceing. But Gazza does'nt drink now and his story tells you why.
Much credit should be given to Hunter Davies for the way he captures the essence and vibrancy of Gasgoine along with the madness, stupidity and wonderful talent this man boy displayed for a short period of his life. What he does with the rest of his life now, will be another story.

Format: Hardcover
An essential read for those that grew up watching the man. Dispels a few myths and relays a few truths - some better than the myths. Honest book, though he has done so much that he doesn't dwell on any period of his life for too long - could have done with being a bit longer.
Not just about the football, and well worth reading.

Format: Hardcover
i got this book as birthday present & when i started reading i just couldn't put it down.
i know every one sys that but in this case it is true. whe sportspeople write books with gst writers you dont expect much, but this book is different & is a clas apart from all the others.
the book starts wih his early years growing up in gateshead, when he discovered that he had th talent everyone now knows so much about & when a childhood friend died it set the tone for what on the whole has been a somewhat eventful life.
he tells the reader about his experiences with managers like Venabes,Hoddle & Walter Smith.
On the whole he does seem to be a somewhat trouble man & a complete obsessive whch he admits to in the book.
this book is a compulsive read & if like me you got into footy afta 'gazzamania' & want to know how all the fuss cme about & why this book is perfet or you
Gazza=Legend

Format: Paperback
This is the best autobiography Ive ever read. He is so honest, not leaving out one thing because it might embarress him, or get him in trouble. Its brilliantly written, and the subtle swearing makes it even more enjoyable. Even if you dont like football, you will enjoy this autobiography!

Essential reading for anybody who knows of him. Dispels a few myths and lets you in on some even worse secrets. Not just about the footy, also examines himself and the various issues that have hindered his career. Can't help but feel sorry for Gazza. But what a legend.
