This review is from: Added Time: Surviving Cancer, Death Threats and the Premier League (Paperback)
A searing account of life as a Premier League referee and his comeback to the top-flight after being diagnosed with cancer.
Previous books by referees have been pretty anodyne, this one certainly isn't, which is probably why it incurred the wrath of football chiefs.
There are gripping accounts of some of the most controversial moments from recent seasons and it lifts the lid on officials relationships with managers and players. There is also a powerful section, recounting how a cancer consultant told him he might never referee again, certainly not anything above games in his local park.
The prologue also explains how the book came to be published in the first place - a story in itself.
