Fantastic, Funny, Emotional,
This review is from: Longy: Booze, Brawls, Sex and Scandal - The Autobiography of the Wild Man of Rugby League (Paperback)
This has to be one of the best biographies I have read in years.
As a LRLFC (Rhinos) Fan I have enjoyed booing Sean Long whilst hes either tore us apart or we have managed to control him. I have enjoyed my Friday nights watching him do the magic on the pitch, its a love hate relationship that most rival fans have with him.
The book is funny,gripping and quite shocking, I would love to read the bits the lawers took out! Overall and most important, the book is very very honest, even if it does make the lad embarrassed.
The story does jump around a little, however its very well written and you can follow it with ease. He tells us about his difficult childhood, his time at school, discovering RL and then his career especially as with most RL players, his drinking career.
I would recommend this to any Rugby fan, League or Union. It was a great laugh and had me hooked, I read it in 1 day, it was such a good book.
