There was a lot I didn't know about Stevo. I just thought he was an opinionated pundit on Sky with a daft turn of phrase. He's actually a really interesting guy and a bit of an entrepreneur. The following facts about Stevo were all a surprise to me: he was born in Dewsbury; he fell foul of the rugby league powers-that-be; he dabbled in journalism; and that he set up the rugby league museum at the George Hotel in Huddersfield. This man has hidden depths. After reading his book, I have new respect for him and I think he's a great champion for rugby league. This book is great if you want to find out about the 1972 Rugby League World Cup winning team. Shockingly the media at home ignored their victory until forced to acknowledge it some 30 years later. Stevo's descriptions of the world cup games paint a vivid picture of top class rugby league at the time.
In short, Stevo's book is a must for any rugby league fan. It provides an enthralling insight into the world of rugby league past and present.

This book is a fantastic read! It describes Stevo's humble beginnings in Dewsbury, West Yorkshire and follows his rugby career right the way through to his move to Australia. It then outlines the start of Stevo's media career and follows this through to the present day. The narrative style lends itself perfectly to on-the-pitch descriptions of Stevo's memorable games and goes into just enough details about Stevo's off-the-pitch private life so that it does not detract from the best rugby story I've read. Stevo portrays himself as a decent (if opinionated), self-depreciating guy whose overriding love of rugby league shines through. Any rugby league fan (whatever club they support) would find this book completely engrossing - I recommend it!

Love him or hate him (there doesn't seem to be a half way with Stevo!), this is a great read from a REAL personality in rugby league. As a Rhinos fan I wasn't too sure when I was first given the book, but I'm glad I got it - I really do see Stevo in a different light now. The book takes you all the way through his career as a player in the north of England, over to Oz where he did well, and onto his career in the media. I really enjoyed reading about Stevo and recommend the book to all rugby league fans - whether you love him or hate him! Well done, Mike.

What a great read! Took it on holiday this summer and finished the near 300 pages in only a couple of days. I just couldn't put it down!

Stevo comes across as a down to earth and self deprecating guy, who has overcome significant hardship in his life, knows his limitations and yet has a will to succeed in everything he does. A real lesson to us all comes through the pages of the book as he describes his challenges when moving down under and when getting his Rugby League memorabilia exhibition underway. He has obviously never been afraid of hard work, with the book describing his leaner times, even in relatively recent years.

I wasn't sure of Stevo the man before I read the book, now I will enjoy his commentary in a new and even more enjoyable light.

I received this book as a Christmas present with mixed feelings: Mike Stephenson is the self-opinionated summariser cum pundit on Sky Sports' otherwise excellent coverage of rugby league. To his credt, however, "Stevo" openly acknowledges that this is how the wider world views him and in this autobiography he takes the reader through his life with surprisingly good narrative style.
The most interesting part of the book is that dealing with "Stevo's" tough upbringing in a working class family living in post-war Dewsbury, Yorks. His graphic description of the poverty in which he and his family lived vividly conveys to the reader the daily struggle to make ends meet.
For somebody like me who has a limited knowledge of the history of the game it was a shock to learn that, shortly after contributing to Great Britain's victory in the World Cup, "Stevo" was forced into international retirement by small-minded, parochial bureaucrats following his decision to ply his trade in the Australian rugby league competition. It's hard to imagine such an attitude prevailing in this modern era of international transfers and the advent of the global game.
Overall, I'd say that the book is of interest to fans of rugby league and provides the reader into an insight on the way in which the sport has developed over the last 30 years through the eyes of one of its most prominent exponents.

I'm not sure if all his stories are 100% true, but its a fun and amusing read and gives you an insight into the enigma that is Stevo
In real life I suspect he does understand the game, but his persona specialises in misreading and controversy
There is little of this in the book, for the Dewsbury Dog Millionaire
Well worth a few hours read
I enjoyed it
