The Zlatan one got rave reviews, there is one about cloughy at forest by a local journo, (might be same guy the did Damm united not certain) but its a warts and all story, very sad in parts!
Best one Ive read if he is into cricket is wally hammond by David Foot, incredable story about an absolutely towering cricketer who was a right fanny! Reminded me so much of Kevin Pieterson!

great read though!

I read Lee Howey’s book earlier this year and it is brilliant, brutally honest about himself and others, including his brother, some nice references to us, a cracking Tony Coton story and a laugh on just about every page.

Also Barbarian Days, autobiography of surfer William Finnegan is very good.

The book DES is going on about is Provided You Don’t Kiss Me by Duncan Hamilton, and for once, the senile old get is correct, it’s very good

All Arms And Elbows by Innes Ireland. Brutally honest account of a second-tier Grand Prix driver of the 1960s.

You don't have to be a cricket fan to enjoy the writings of Mike Brearley and CLR James - the latter a genuine wordsmith.

Damon Hill's recent one also worth a look.
Paul McGrath's autobiography is a really good read. Very sad in parts though.

Agreed - it is an excellent book.

Peter Crouch's "How to be a footballer" is a decent enough read too.

Agreed about the Tuffnel ones. Ian Poulter's very good.

Obviously, he's an older gent he may enjoy Murray Walker's a good read

George Best’ is a fantastic read.

Don't have to be a cycling fan: 'Racing Through The Dark' by David Millar is astonishing, emotional and ultimately uplifting...

Thirded - excellent book. Also worth checking out the guy who wrote it with him - J. R. Moehringer - other books. He's a great writer.
