Customer Review

on 16 August 2013
Football biographies tend to be rushed-off and superficial (usually by poor ghost writers) so it's a welcome change to find a grown-up biography that's been meticulously researched and beautifully written. It contains a great deal of fascinating new material that casts fresh light on the King of Dribble, the man and the player, arguably the greatest player ever to put on an England shirt. Amazing that he played for England at the age of 42 and played his last league game at the age of 50! I found this book to be intelligent and thought-provoking, the best football "read" since that classic, Football against the Enemy by another great sports writer, Simon Kuper.
