Book Description

6 Jun 2005
Mick Channon has scaled the twin peaks of both football and horse racing during a double sporting life that will surely never be equalled. He has enjoyed laps of honour at Wembley and ridden down the straight mile at Ascot in a horse drawn carriage as a guest of the Queen. The Authorised Biography is packed with hilarious intimate anecdotes and spine-tingling achievements. This is Mick Channon's story.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mick Channon: The Authorised Biography 8 Jun 2004
By Hugh D.
This is an enjoyable read for those who seek a nostalgic view of a great football era and a passion for horse racing. You are left with vivid impression of a much liked and talented man who shifts from one world to another with seemingless ease. How many of us yearn to trade our current job for another of our dreams but dare not and how many could excel in both? It is a sentimental read at times but worth reading for some great anecdotes which make the book for me. The author's style is occasionally 'light'and can be forgiven as he manages to build a charismatic picture of Mick Channon.A good relaxed read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great value book 17 July 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Bought this book for a friend who had been looking for Mick Channon's biography but wasn't sure if he had had one published. He was over the moon when I found it for him and gave it to him as a present. It was a used version but was in good condition and for what it cost me it was worth it just to see the look of pleasure on his face when I gave it to him.
