It's really difficult to write a review on a book written by your Idol. Anything in the book is interesting and pleasant to read if you are his fan. I don't think any Owen fan will miss it - the more I know about Owen, the more I like him both as a person and as a footballer. It's hard to find somebody like him in this modern world of football.
I wish Owen all the luck and great success in his years in Spain. Despite all the problems, large and small, I firmly believe that he will not return to any English Club in the near future (say not until he reaches 30!)

Michael Owen, a fantastic footballer who is on course to be one of the highest achievers in English football, which is why a book of his achievements so far should be a great read. Sadley it's not. His background and his jouney into the professional game is intresting, as it gives an insight into his born ability with a football as well as his focused personality helping to keep his feet on the ground. However, from the moment he makes his Liverpool debut, the book just becomes details of fact about his achivements, and insignificant fact at that. Who wants to read about goals he's scored or set-up in fairly unimportant games? He also tries to justify and compare himself to other players, such as Robbie Fowler, too often. That said, his views on Kevin Keegan, Glenn Hoddle and Sven Goran Errikson provide an intresting comparison on the England manager's he's worked with. The chapter on his gambling 'problem' also sets the record straight. All in all this book crambs in too much insignicant topics, probably because he's only half way through his career meaning he is unable to fully express his opinions on certain people. Another classic example of why sports personalities should wait until the end of their career's to publish their life story.

I bought this book for my 12 year old son who is a fanatical Liverpool fan and also likes Michael Owen. He has really enjoyed reading it, I would recommend this book and say that it is suitable for youngsters as well as older readers.

The book arrived in good time as it was bought as a gift. A good read if you are into the football game or like autobiographies.
