Whilst I don't support any of the teams he's played for, I've always rated Craig Bellamy. It's very easy to fall into the trap of thinking that the life of a top Premier League player must be an easy one - after all, they play the game they love for huge financial rewards and the adulation of thousands of adoring supporters.

What this book conveys better than any other footie autobiography I've read, is the underlying insecurity of knowing how quickly a career can be ended by injury or loss of form, and the psychological impact the fear of this can have on a player whose whole life has been dedicated to reaching the top of the game and staying there.

Craig writes openly and honestly about the controversies surrounding his career, both on and off the pitch, and about his personal shortcomings that have contributed to his bad-boy image. I suspect and hope that writing this book has helped him come to terms with some of these.

I think any football fan would find this book an illuminating and fascinating read.

Not what I expected to read. Craig Bellamy became a man after Gary Speed died. He reflected on his life, his decisions, his mistakes and choices. The sadness of not being around his children came through loud and clear. The generosity of setting up a foundation in Sierra Leone showed how much of a generously giving and caring person he is ... with a massive heart. I don't say this lightly or too often ... I would love to meet Craig Bellamy and talk to him for a few hours. Great Book.

A good read. He comes across as a contrary and exasperating character, but he has had an eventful career and this is a bold account of its ups and downs. As a Newcastle supporter, I found his account of his seasons at the Toon particularly interesting and convincing. Recommended.

Brilliant book, it gives everyone a better idea of who Craig Bellamy is under all of the snarls and controversies. Recommend to all football fans especially Liverpool and Cardiff fans.

This a good and honest biography with, thankfully no repetition to pad it out.
Written in a tight format. He's very kind to Souness but I still can't stand Chop Souey.
