Format: Hardcover
Every inch of this book has been designed for the laughs - right from the cover and title mocking David Beckham's autobiography "My side" through to the faux index, even the autographs hidden underneath the dust jacket.

The story follows football-obsessed David Feckham. He is the opposite of David Beckham because he is rubbish at football. Trouble is he can't see that and assumes that when people tell him he is rubbish that it is just typical football banter.

His career follows a similar path to Beckham's in that he plays for a football team in Manchester, a pub team; he remarkably makes the England national team (the pub one), even becoming captain. He then moves to Spain working for a timeshare company there but is much more interested in playing for their football team than in making sales. He even meets the real Beckham a few times along the way with the accumulation of these meeting bringing about a fitting ending to the book.

The humour may wear after a while but I still loved it and all other football fans will love it too. Recommended.

I shall keep this short and sweet but just to say that if you like a very dry humour and love footie, this book is most definitely for you, go and buy it, it's an asset to any football fan's book collection. Well written and very witty, sounds like a cliche but it did make me laugh out loud! great stuff!

what can I say, I just could not put it down, wonderful, emotional and so funny. Well written, good grammer and complete sentences, very good. But Zucker is the AC / DC of literature, funny witty and close parody and observant view of life, written to a good rocking beat. A great christmas present for everyone, buy it today.
