About the Author
CALUM BEST was born in 1981, the son of the late British football legend George Best and his first wife, Angie Best, an English model. After a childhood lived in the spotlight and a successful spell as a model, Calum appeared in a number of reality television shows. After his father’s death, he turned to drugs and alcohol – a period of his life which lasted several years and which he now speaks openly about in order to raise awareness and provide support for others. He is an actor, model and entrepreneur, and is involved in several charities including NACOA (National Association for Children of Alcoholics), Action on Addiction and the Elton John Aids Foundation. He lives in London.

I read this in two days I couldn't put it down.
Really happy that calum has started to get his life back and felt so sad for him. He went off the rails and I can understand why. Calum hasn't slated his dad in any way shape or form, his words are of a son with a father as an alcoholic and I think he was very brave to conquer his demons and write this book.
