Excellent. Concentrates on the football without giving too much away on home life except for the teenage years. But as most people will be buying for the football side then this suits me fine. Very honest and pulls no punches in naming those who crossed Supermac. Whilst he has mellowed as the years have advanced, he's not as old as you may think, you get the impression he would still sort out a few if given the right circumstances.
For someone who had such a successful career, I found it surprising he had so many football regrets and disappointments. 'Football' you feel let Supermac down when he most needed help and support.
Well worth the investment - get it now. I don't read many books - they fail to keep me interested but this one is well worth the investment in time and money.

'Supermac' is the reason I now support Newcastle - he was the No.9 at St.James' Park in the early '70's when I first started going and I was immeadietley hooked on both he as a player and supporting the club.
I was naturally interested in hearing his view on events at SJP in his days there and in particular, his relationship with Joe Harvey and Gordon Lee. I was not disappointed, and amazed at the amateur goings on at the club in relation to the Board's behaviour in particular, the farcical preparation for the ill-fated FA Cup Final in 1974.
'Supermac' is a fascinating story about a real person and his frailties and the so-called 'characters' in the game of football.
Great for any fellow Toon fans who witnessed his fantastic goals at SJP - the hairs on the back of your neck would stand up when Supermac got the ball and launched a run forward at the opposition's goal, with the crowd bellowing their support.Happy days!

I was looking for another football biography to read over Christmas and when I saw my fellow readers reviews thought, that`ll do for me. I was not disappointed. This is a fine read, about one of the iconic figures of seventies football in England. Malcolm does not gloss over the less than edifying aspects of the game and the chapter detailing his England career is nothing short of amazing. It is worth buying the book just to read that chapter alone. The rest is pretty good too and he does not hold back from naming names. Strangely, for a football biography of that period there is no mention of the greatest player around the League at that time, but despite being devoid of any mention of George this remains one of the best books around.
