A true legend.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Duncan Edwards: The Greatest (MUFC) (Hardcover)
Author James Leighton has written an in depth biography of,possibly,the finest footballer of all-time.Although much of the book consists of the things i already knew about Edwards this book links it all together and gives the reader an indepth look at what the player was all about.Giving accounts of his early life,schoolboy football through united's youth teams and his senior football.All told in well in a flowing manner.There are stories from those who knew him and details from many of the games Edwards played in.His death is told of in a sensitive and touching way.A great book and an excellent read for any football fan or Biography reader.

There is nothing new in this book and not even in the way it is told. It is a rehashed version of other books and material and certainly does nothing for me. As somebody who knew Duncan and has taken a great interest in everything that is written about him, I think that this is a poor effort.

If you knew Duncan Edwards then the new book ,perhaps,is a poor effort.Can you reccomend any books that tell his story in a better way.
