Pretty good read ...sad how it ended for him and his family.
Some good advice for the hard of hearing to get a deaf aid .... Incredible to think some don't bother through vanity.

Ian Redford wrote this himself apparently.
At times that shows. A good editor would have told him to lay off the exclamation marks for a start. That's the most irritating part of this book.
But there are good parts, very good parts.
The way in which Ian tells with unflinching honesty of the premature death of his young brother and the impact that had on his parents and family is unusual and utterly refreshing.
I remember Ian as a cultured and fine footballer who had a fine career but never reached the absolute summit of the game. I never gave it a thought as to why that was the case.
Read this and the possible reasons become clear.
Frank, unflinching and utterly heart rending at times I recommend this to Rangers, Dundee, Dundee United and Scottish football fans of the 80s.

I began reading the book wondering if I'd like it or not because to be honest I'm no football fan, but I was surprised at how quickly Ian enticers the reader to join him on his journey through his childhood, (feel his heartache after the tragic loss of a much loved brother) the early years of his football career and the highs and lows of being a popular and much sort after Scottish footballer.
So although I'm no fan of the game, you don't need to be a devoted follower of football to enjoy this book, it's an eye opener and insight in to when football was a game of skill played by men and not like today where they throw themselves onto the ground hoping for a free kick!!
Ian's book will take you on an emotional roller-coaster of his early life through to the present day.

I would recommend this book to friends, family or any lover of football...

As a Dundee United fan, I found this an excellent book. Unfortunately, it was read in the wake of the sad news about Redford. What a shame that his demons eventually got the better of him.

The sections about his time at United were a joy to read and it reminded me about a glorious chapter in United's history and the significant role that Redford played in it.

An absolute Rolls Royce of a player and forever a United legend.

This is the first time I have ever reviewed a book but just could not put it down .Ian Redford is an inspiration to anyone fighting to succeed when given no chance through hearing disability. He has overcome personal tragedy and comes across as just a normal family man such a tonic in contrast to others in his former profession

very informative read of a local lad who reached the top of his profession under the strain of a troubled family life.i enjoyed the details and honesty of the book and its a great biography which does not paint a glossy picture as so many other sporting books are guilty of doing.and highly recommend
