As a Leeds fan, I couldn't resist buying this book, and I was surprised at the content. Although filled with the expected content of footballing memories, as so many other books are, Vinnie's book has undertones which at times are moving. The love story between Vinnie and his drop dead gorgeous wife(sorry Vinnie - she is!!)doesn't quite beat Romeo and Juliet, but Vinnie certainly gets across his love for her and his family. I certainly never really thought as Vinnie as a guy with a Romantic side but this guy does.
Also incorporated is the tragedy of Vinnies youth. The rejection that still drives him today.
The book confirms what all Leeds fans have always known - There is Only One Vinnie Jones...

As he says himself he is no intellectual and there are plenty of lads' anecdotes but no deep insights. I also suspect he glosses over some of his worst misdeeds. However, an insider's view of football, especially a unique character like Jones, always has some interest. Jones comes over as being more sensitive than I expected. He's also honest and this wins the day as it places the book slightly above the ordinary cash-in football bios.

As a Dons supporter, I had to get this. And I wasn't disappointed. It is well written and details Vinny's life from a lad to (almost) today (his QPR 'career' had just began).
A must for all Wimbledon/Leeds/Chelsea/Wales fans. And Squire Vincent ones too.

Being too young to remember all of Vinnie's careeer highlights (and lows!) I found this book fascinating to read. He goes into detail about his career, the managers/coaches he had and explains how he feels throughout it all. Buy it!

I dont think Vinnie was all together truthful to extent of his bullying on or off the field.where ever he went there was bullying of some sorts,not a good example for the want to be footballers,he was certainly a hard man to play against and not always because of the reputation of being a good footballer, he let his team down at every game because of his intent on winning even though it involved bad fouls and could on more than one occation done serious harm to other players.In my opinion not a man to be admired,this is not what football should be about and certainly gives a bad example to youngsters who seriously follow the game.I wonder how many past footballers are today having injury problems caused by deliberate dirty fouls off Vinnie Jones.

A true fairytale book with the highs of making it as a professional footballer, winning the FA Cup and captaining his country and the lows of constantly moving houses, being rejected as a youngster and just one or two red cards!

Vinnie's autobiography is the type of book that I had to read. Once I started reading it ,I could'nt put it down I had to finish it. My personal view, it's sad, funny, and well worth reading.

It catches you right from the start and you won`t stop until you finish it. It is not just for fans of him but for everyone.
