5.0 out of 5 stars A real insight to a talented but troubled man, 29 Dec 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Phil Tufnell: What Now?: The Autobiography (Hardcover)
This book is very much to do with Tufnell the man. His candid acceptance of the fact that he can be a complete prat on ocassion is interwoven fairly seamlessly with cricket anecdotes and contemporary stories. Its also very funny in places, not least of all when he makes jokes at his own expense. "lend me your brain, Tufnell, I'm building an idiot" is a memorable gag and he agrees. The story is written very much from his own perspective and hopefully is true in every respect. If it is, it commands sympathy for the way he has been dumped on by certain individuals, not least his second wife,who won't let him see his daughter. It would be interesting to read her story too and to figure out the truth from that. Also, his difficulty with Illingworth also shines through and this was a period of cricket history that most cricket fans would like to forget. If you are a cricket fan, this book is a blinder. I knew nothing of Tufnell when I started it and I feel like I know him pretty well now. And I guess that was what the book intended to do.
