Normally I would never pay 8 quid for a Kindle book but knowing that most of it is going to a good cause made it an easy decision.
The book kept my interest till the end. The chapters are the right length and there is an unusual mix of international football glamor tempered with life outside the premier league. A good read.
However, I can say that Kevin Kilbane comes across as a seriously well-rounded, grounded and thoroughly decent human being - probably somebody who was too nice for the murky world of football and all its glitzy soul-less trappings. Mick McCarthy said in the intro that he would be honoured to call him his son and Kilbane's honesty and humility comes across well in the book - it just lacks punch.
Most interesting passages are on the birth of his daughter and how he and his family and friends came to terms with her Downs Syndrome. Kilbane's insecurity and lack of faith in his own ability are noteworthy too.
