Great Player, OK Book,
This review is from: Kenny Dalglish My Autobiography (Paperback)
Having watched Dalglish destroy my beloved Man Utd on numerous occasions in the 1970s and 80s, I opened this book with mixed feelings. Putting aside club loyalties, Dalglish stood head and shoulders above all other players of the era - what a truly superb player. No wonder Jock Stein was said to be broken-hearted when Dalglish headed for Anfield in 1977. I enjoyed the book but, frankly, I thought it would be better. Even the controversial incidents - ie the clashes with Alex Ferguson - are handled very cautiously. You get the sense that this book is more about diplomacy than actually telling the full story, warts-and-all. It is a good read and worth the cover price. I just thought that a player like Dalglish would have merited a great book rather than just a good tome.
