A no-holds barred account of the never less than interesting life of an opinionated, vulnerable yet refreshingly intelligent sportsman. The examination of the painful private experience behind the outspoken public persona takes the book beyond its immediate sporting audience.
For all his strongly held opinions, Moore cannot be described as a literary stylist. His legal background is apparent in his writing and the robust argument, combined with the extraordinary candour, can often make for a gruelling read.
However, his frank admission of ongoing vulnerability in the face of sporting machismo is admirable.
