There must have been more column inches written about George Best than any other sportsman past or present.This though is the only book ever written about the Irishman's brief though fascinating career at Hiberian.To read the book is like winding back the clock to a football time which is very different from today. For those who can recall the hullabaloo caused when George signed for the Hibees, this is a wonderful return down memory lane. Many others will know little about Bestie's short spell at Easter Road. Whichever bracket you are in this book is a riveting read.
This publication has been extremely well researched and has been written with a lot of thought and is well balanced as a result.John Neil Munro has done a superb job tracking down many people who recall George's time in Edinburgh and their personal accounts make for fascinating reading. The narrative is nicely supported by lots of photographs and details of all George's appearances at Hiberian are included.
Whether you are a Hibs fan, a George Best fan or a football fan in general this book is a highly recommended page turner.
