Very comprehensive and reads like a story. Excellent detailed anecdotes and punctuated with details and differing perspectives. Very insightful.

4.0 out of 5 stars brutally honest, 1 Mar. 2015

A tragic tale from a man who has accepted responsibility and is not scared to tell events how they were instead of putting a gloss on or blaming others. Makes you feel for his loss, and to be pleased he seems to have put himself back on track. Should be required reading for football fans.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than I thought, 31 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am not a Leeds fan and neither a scot, but I bought this book out of curiosity. Pleased I did. Partly written by a fan, this book glosses over some of the more unsavoury incidents but there are many rich anecdotes and frank tales here. You get a real sense of how the game was played in those days and understand how a patriotic good player did fit in. I could reconcile the combative on field player with the gentleman off it. A good read. Recommended.

Price: £5.99

4.0 out of 5 stars A good read of many aspects of the times and his career, 16 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Just like Jimmy Case, a direct and simplistic but thorough review of many aspects of his career and the football clubs. Not as touch feely as Phil Thompson's book but containing plenty of anecdotes. Glossed over the drinking stories I suspect but there are still a few. Good read.

3.0 out of 5 stars bargain read, 10 Oct. 2014

Definitely worthwhile a read and at a bargain price. Could have done with some post match analysis from the protagonist after some of the big matches he has played.

Forget You Had a Daughter - Doing Time in the Bangkok Hilton: Doing Time in the Bangkok Hilton - Sandra Gregory's Story
Price: £3.59

4.0 out of 5 stars absorbing descriptions of the Bangkok Hilton, 3 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very graphic descriptions of life inside both Thai and UK prisons made this impossible to put down. I read the whole thing in a few days despite being in the middle of another book. Obviously sanitised so as not to offend to many people but still opinionated. Poor girl paid a huge price for her youngster's error in judgement.

4.0 out of 5 stars one of the better football books, 1 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was a big fan of Guillem's newspaper articles so I was curious if he would still deliver the goods on a longer format. Very insightful book; answered all the questions I had when I picked this up. He could easily have written double the pages and it would have been absorbing still. Good reading for the commute into work. Recommended!
