5.0 out of 5 stars
An amusing and worthwhile read, 12 April 2012
People say that one should never judge a book by its cover. In this case they are wrong, completely wrong. Just taking one look -- if you can get away with just one look -- confirms this. It is just so appropriate. One eye open and smiling, the other closed and crying. One side of the mouth turned up, the other side turned down . And the book's subtitle dividing them. Plus the Liverpool skyline across the bottom of the cover. Brilliant. Ahh, you say. Okay. Fine. Good cover, but what about the narrative? Well, It's light, it's chatty, it's often funny, it's uplifting and, as his brother in law, I can vouch for its veracity. Early on, Phil recognised what he did well and put that into practice. He learned the hard way. Yes, he's had his ups and downs but throughout he has always believed in himself and inspired others to do so too. He's done well by his family and he's made a mark on Liverpool. How many can say that? No wonder he wants his grandchildren to know how he did it.
