Reviews

As survivor's tales go, this is brutalist epic...McGrath's narrative has a stark honesty. -- Sean O'Hagan * The Observer Sport Monthly *
Continuing the trend of brutal honesty which was popularised by Paul Gascoigne's autobiography, McGrath's book is difficult to read for anyone with an ounce of human kindness, especially those who marvelled at his ability from the Old Trafford terraces... Beautifully written. * Manchester Evening News *
Laceratingly honest...remarkably unflinching * Mail on Sunday *
A startling, harrowing read... far removed from the churn-em-out footballing autobiographies...This is an uncompromising tale, wonderfully told, about one of our most talented and disturbed sporting heroes. -- Hugh Farrelly * Irish Independent *
Heartbreaking...poingnant -- Robert Philip * Daily Telegraph *
