About the Author
Carlton Palmer began his football career as an apprentice at his local club West Bromwich Albion while still a teenager and quickly made a name for himself as a combative midfielder. He established a rapport with The Baggies' manager Ron Atkinson who persuaded Carlton to follow him when he took the reins at Sheffield Wednesday. Carlton's determined, battling style endeared him to the Hillsborough faithful, and to then England manager Graham Taylor who selected him to represent his country on 18 occasions. Making over 200 appearances for Wednesday, Carlton was transferred to Leeds United in 1994 for a fee of GBP2.6 million. Three years later he moved to Southampton for two seasons before joining Nottingham Forest and then Coventry City. Since retiring from playing, Carlton has worked as a football coach and TV pundit. He is now based in China where he is the academy director at Wellington College International in Shanghai.

Today, "stuck" in Singapore I got started and couldn't put it down, until I finished it in the evening of the same day.
This is the first and possibly only footballers biography I will read, but I found so many points about life, some very relevant to my own story (I'm NOT a footballer of any kind by the way), interwoven into a fascinating football story.
I know Carlton slightly, from a distance as it were, he is one of the most genuine, straight forward, people you will ever meet, "He is what he is" so to speak.
Fascinating, and such a good idea that he has collaborated with Steve Jacobi, an unsung genius of culture.
If you have any interest in football and life this is certainly worth reading.
Carlton is very candid and truthful in the book, good or bad he lets it all out in the book. Very enjoyable read
