One Tony Adams,
By A Customer
This review is from: Addicted (Paperback)
...I myself however found the book a good read on two levels. Firstly the football 'gossip' that was of interest, but also, and this is what really kept me reading, the honesty displayed by Tony Adams.
He goes into great detail and explanation about the addictions he faced, how they all but destroyed everything he had, and how he turned it around. From a psychological point of view alone, this book warrants a 5 star rating. I began to understand how we get addicted and also how to beat that addiction. That something can take over your life to the detriment of everything else.
He showed himself to be an intelligent, articulate man, and I myself certainly have a completely different view of him that he once displayed through his own drunken antics and the media coverage that came from that.
Adams is well worthy of any praise he receives, given he now uses the knowledge illustrated in the book to help other sportsmen in similar situations.
