Sunday Times bestseller

Ian Wright, Arsenal legend, England striker and TV pundit extraordinaire, is one of the most interesting and relevant figures in modern football.

His journey from a South London council estate to national treasure is everybody's dream. From Sunday morning football directly to Crystal Palace; from 'boring, boring Arsenal' to inside the Wenger Revolution; from Saturday afternoons on the pitch to Saturday evenings on primetime television; from a week in prison to inspiring youth offenders, Ian will reveal all about his extraordinary life and career.

Ian will also frankly discuss how retirement affects footballers, why George Graham deserves a statue, social media, why music matters, breaking Arsenal's goal-scoring record, racism, the unadulterated joy of playing alongside Dennis Bergkamp and, of course, what he thinks of Tottenham.

Not a standard footballer's autobiography, Ian Wright's memoir is a thoughtful and gripping insight into a Highbury Hero and one of the greatest sports stars of recent years.

Ian was remembered for playing very deep as a palace strike and then when the ball was released to him he would run the length of a pitch like a speed train with the ball and would slot …

I am not a fan of Greenwich Borough, Crystal Palace, Arsenal, West Ham, Celtic, Burnley but after this book I am a fan of Ian Wright. I listen to him on Five Live and feel he treats everybody with a very human touch. A lot of football autobiographies these days you know already seem to know all about the story. A great read well worth the money

An honest account

Read this and Ian came across very honest. From his upbringing in London and the pitfalls he could have fallen in. His relationships and the mistakes he has made and the lessons he has learnt. He also gives good accounts of his times at Palace, Arsenal etc and what it was like to play for different managers. He also delves in to life after football and the regrets of some of the tv stuff he agreed to. He is one of the better pundits on match of the day and what you see is what you get

A superb read for any football fan

I’ve followed Ian’s career from his Palace days through to the Arsenal times as those were my two favourite clubs.

Enjoyable read even if you’re not mad about football.

I really enjoyed this book. Ian writes as he finds. As someone who is of a similar age there are so many references to things I remember. I’m not a huge football fan but I read this book quickly and I have since lent it out to my football mad friends. Well done Ian, you tell it as it was.

Brilliant read!

This is the best football book I’ve ever read . He’s honest and open and his story is pretty amazing. What sets it apart from other football books is the structure and way It’s told. It’s not the usual format and it really works and makes a fantastic read.

Amazing account. I found it very interesting as a Crystal Palace fan. I agree with most of Ians opinions and attitute to life.As well as Palace I too have great respect for Glenn Hoddle and Arsene Wenger and the great unbeatable Arsenal team. As a Palace fan we take the knockbacks, but nothing like some of the things Ian had to overcome. Good luck Ian and best wishes and thanks for what you did for Palace.

Excellent read

Very honest account of his tough upbringing in east London and his struggles to become a professional footballer against all the odds. He is quite candid about his numerous infidelities while married and regrets the hurt caused. Has plenty of advice for any aspiring young footballers and their parents. Interesting views on structural racism within FA.

Fantastic read, about a true great !

Came across this book by chance, so glad I did as a real insight into the world of football and stories that I had never heard about. A real ambassador for football who played for the love of the game.
