5.0 out of 5 stars
A real page-turner, 3 Aug 2011
I heard about this book from reading the five-star review in FourFourTwo, and so I got it straight away and I must say it doesn't disappoint. `Baz' gives a great insight into the world of football, having spent 35 years in the game as a player, physio and manager. What I also thought was really interesting and also quite surprising was the confidence issues he faced as a young player rising through the youth ranks to the first team of the club he supported as a boy, Birmingham City. The parts about his sensitivity to dressing-room banter from his teammates and his stage-fright at playing alongside his footballing hero Trevor Francis are particularly shocking. When reading the book you really feel like you get to know Baz, and his warmth and sense of humour really comes across. He's honest and intelligent and can certainly tell a good tale, and I'd definitely recommend this book to any fans of football, or sport in general.
