I really liked listening to this audiobook, I am not the biggest football fan but I do like sports. As I was gearing up for the start of the football season (it's good office banter) I thought I would get in the mood by listening to Mr Warnock and his career. I enjoyed the stories and found the life intriguing. I guess times have changed and for a football manager it must be hard to have to deal with so many people to get a transfer done.
Anyway if you are a sports fan it is worth a listen.
I have always liked Harry Redknapp but knew little about him, except what is printed in the headlines of newspapers. I think in footballing terms he has done a lot and achieved some very impressive results over the years with a variety teams. The audiobook is good, he talks about all the clubs he has managed and doesn't hold back on opinions. He talks about his tax evasion court case and the England coach job, giving his side of the story. I personally, would have liked him to get the job as England manager and thought he would have been very good at it, but it wasn't to be. He talks a lot about the late, but great, Bobby Moore and this clearly says volumes of Harry's bond with him.
The narration is very good and at times I had to remind myself it wasn't Harry himself. The narration is done with a lot of passion and not just read but told to you like a conversation.
The bio is generally good. Harry has had a lot of experience in football and each club presented a new challenge. I enjoyed hearing about the clubs and the players he has worked with over the years.
On the whole, I would recommend this audiobook. I enjoyed listening to and glad I bought it.
I really enjoyed this audio book, in fact I was hooked. After all the news in the press regarding Lance Armstrong and doping, I thought I would give it a go and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It's a very open and honest account of his time in cycling at the top, at that time. I liked it because the author was honest and explained the culture and environment in detail, which helped understand more about why it happened. I like that it explained what doping actually meant and what it did for the body and performance. I very much liked that the author was telling the story and didn't assign blame, he told the story as it was.
The book is well narrated and a very easy listen.
