"Ah'm tellin thee" is more than a biography of a very talented, very proud, dignified and extremely honourable man. It is a well documented piece of social history. Transporting the reader to a time when playing professional football was no more than a safer alternative to the industrial dangers of a life down the mines or on the factory floor. Every page brings Tommy Banks to life culminating in him feeling like a best friend.
So as Tommy Banks would say "Ah'm gooin tell awl n sundry bah't it, cause its reet gud n gradley book, if tha con read"

I bought this for my Grandad as a gift. Not only did he enjoy reading the book, reminiscing on the olden days, but also saw a lot of similarities between his life and Tommy's life.
I have also read the book; and i think that the younger generation can learn a lot about football, the recent history of the country, and the life of a talented footballer - Tommy Banks!
