About this book
Winner of the William Hill Irish Sports Book of the Year Award 2006, this is the autobiography of the greatest defender of the 1980s and 90s. This is not just a football story, it is an extraordinary human story that is certain to surprise with its candour. 'Laceratingly honest ... remarkably unflinching' "Mail on Sunday"
Paul McGrath is Ireland's best loved sportsman and also its least understood. But, behind the implied glamour of life in the employ of great English clubs like Manchester United and Aston Villa, McGrath wrestled with a range of destructive emotions that made his success in the game little short of miraculous. This is his story.
