Finally, a Biography Worth Reading,
This review is from: Motty: Forty Years in the Commentary Box (Hardcover)
It's a refreshing change to find not only a biography of someone who is firstly, an expert in their field; secondly, has a long career at the top of their profession and, most importantly, can actually write. That John Motson started work in print journalism has stood him in good stead here. Motty is a highly entertaining mixture of nostalgia, insight and comment on the modern game. Unlike other reviewers, I didn't find the statistics at the end boring, but a memory-jogger of games I had been at or remember from Match of the Days past. This will be dipped into long after ghost-written hagiographies of today's cosseted players have been consigned to the charity shop.
