5.0 out of 5 stars Superb!, 13 Sep 2014
Excellent read from first to last.
What a life this man has had! And what a superb entertainer on the tennis court. Don't miss seeing him if he is playing - and don't miss reading this fascinating autobiography, full of twists and turns.
A must read for all tennis fans - cliched, but true!
The Monogram Murders (Hercule Poirot Mystery 1) by Sophie Hannah

You need to read this book with an open and generous spirit. It is not written by Agatha Christie; no-one will probably ever surpass her genius. But for fans of the great lady and her inimitable Belgium this is a welcome read and a pleasant one.
Yes - it's got its faults and isn't penned in Christie's style (who expected it to be?), but it's quite entertaining and a great pleasure to see Poirot brought back to life. Just enjoy it for what it is.

I agree.
It's a good and interesting read for those who can recall the glorious footballing days of the sixties and seventies, Greaves, Best, Moore and the like.
It also gives you a clear insight into management styles and tactics, particularly around Euro 96, Terry's proudest achievement.
I too admired the way he didn't attempt to destroy the reputations of those he fell out with along the way but still had some grudging and polite respect for everyone. Well done, Terry. Top man.
