5.0 out of 5 stars mark ward-hammered
one of the best books I have read since tony cascarino's many moons ago.it's gritty and mind opening.the book should also give credit for Ward as he knows he has done wrong but does not ask for sympathy but you can understand his grievances.Quality book and MUST be read

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent football book
Not the conventional footballers autobiography-much better than say Rio Ferdinands or Alan Shearers but nowhere near as good as Tony Adams or Roy Keanes.

His time inside wasn't wasted as this is probably one of the best football biographies I've read. Very real and honest. Give it a go you won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Never trust a casual acquaintance, 6 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
How easy it is to fall foul of the law by helping a casual acquaintance. Always get advice before signing any legal document. Mark didn't deserve to go to gaol for eight years, was prepared though to serve his sentence rather than grass on others.

A very sad but compelling read. Good to see that his fellow West Ham players and officials stood by him. All the very best Mark for the rest of your life.

I watched Mark play for Oldham and remember him scoring on his debut. This book is a very honest account of his life and is much more interesting than the majority of football biographies out there by more famous names. I wish Mark all the best in getting his life back on track and hope he manages to secure a job back in football at some point.

5.0 out of 5 stars honest and real., 23 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I absolutely loved this book, whilst ending up with a sense of sadness for how it's gone so badly wrong for such a talented and committed player. In this day and age, Ward would be a multimillionaire and never have to work a day in his life, yet it's clear in the book that Ward has nothing and that puts him in the same bracket as most of the general public.

In the book, it's clear Ward wants to say more but has been censored a little, but it's also clear that Ward simply does not regard himself as any better than your average man on the street, and that makes this book seem like it's written by someone who you can relate to.

It's a decent size read and there's plenty of detail in there, certainly you get your money's worth.

I highly recommend this book.

It was a good read and enjoyed reading about wards time in football and it shows footballers are only human and mess up just a shame they still mess up but anyway reading how he made it as a pro and he's life was not all roses shows it not as clear in the football world as us football fans think it is read this story it's worth it
