5.0 out of 5 stars Honest To The Very Last
I read this last year and it is highly entertaining, particularly his thoughts on his brief tenure with Leeds, and the venom with which he attacks Don Revie on TV and elsewhere.

What shines through for me are two key aspects.

One his love for his family and absolute respect for his mother, hence the mangle quite rightly takes pride of place in his...

3.0 out of 5 stars Just ok
Apparently a legend but just comes across as cocky, it's hard to get his sense of humour without knowing the man

5.0 out of 5 stars Clough the Legend, 11 Sep 2012

I had previously met Brian Clough when taking junior football teams to Nottingham Forest football ground.
I believe he was the best Manager England never had. I thought the book was good but I do not think the author made him a saint! It was an enjoyable read.

I have been reading a lot of sports stars autobiographys lately and this is by far the best . A very honest portrail of his life with some very funny stories. A very easy read and sometimes found it hard to put down.

The best 'Clough book' I have read, and a surprisingly honest assessment of a complicated, although brilliant football manager.

3.0 out of 5 stars An opportunity missed ?, 12 Jan 1999
By A Customer
This book could have been so good, but it skips over most of the stuff that would be important to supporters of the club most synonymous with the man - Nottingham Forest. What were the final days like? Did he really have a drink problem? Why on earth didn't he make a major signing in that final year? To add insult to injury, a large amount of space is devoted to arch-rivals Derby County where Clough had his first major success. The book does not give too much of an insight into a man who was so much in the media spotlight, and there is not much to be found here that a fan would not already know. On the plus side the book is well-written and entertaining, and contains most of the famous incidents associated with Clough. The style of the prose is easy to read and the book is never heavy going. I would recommend this book to fans of the great man who will find it a worthwhile addition to their collections - just don't expect anything earth-shattering.
