No Nonsense is a game-changing autobiography which will redefine the most fascinating figure in British football. It is the raw yet redemptive story of a man shaped by rejection and the consequences of his mistakes. He has represented England and been a pivotal player for Manchester City, Newcastle United, Queens Park Rangers, Marseille, Burnley and Glasgow Rangers, but his career has featured recurring controversy.

I found the early part of the book describing his formative years very interesting. There were also some interesting stories of his career, time in jail and family. Towards the latter part of the book where he talks about himself, his attitude and his general thoughts I found my mind wondering a little and didn't think those parts were particularly engaging.

There just isn't enough time for everything on our to-do list - and there never will be. Successful people don't try to do everything. They learn to focus on the most important tasks and make sure those get done. They eat their frogs. There's an old saying that if the first thing you do each morning is eat a live frog, you'll have the satisfaction of knowing you're done with the worst thing you'll have to do all day. For Tracy, eating a frog is a metaphor for tackling your most challenging task - but also the one that can have the greatest positive impact on your life.

I really enjoyed listening to the book. I took away some valuable points that I now apply to my daily work. I've also bought a copy of the paperback version for my team.
