Legend

Excellent book about one of the worlds greatest players... giving an interesting interesting insight into the world of top level professional football.

The narration is good however slightly let down by the passages when describing chants or songs, feels very robotic at these points. Otherwise an excellent read through.

Definitely worth a read to see inside the mind of one of the worlds greats.

Great listen for any football fan

A must for any Liverpool fan, brilliantly narrated , like listening to Stevie G himself. Engaging and at times quite amusing...
With some very nostalgic and emotional moments..also offers a great insight into the characters around Anfield and Melwood and insights into memorable incidents both on and off the pitch.

Great book on a true legend of the game

Very intense insight into Stevies G's life and mind. He is a winner through and through and this is a great insight into what drove him as a person and a player.

Ohhhh, ya beautyyy!!

Wow. Just finished this audiobook and I am nearly at a loss for words. Been a Liverpool supporter for over a dozen years, and this book taps directly into all the emotions over that period of time. The elations of Istanbul to the slip against Chelsea. Stevie truly has an incredible story to match his incredible career. This is a MUST for any Liverpool fan and any soccer/football fan for that matter.

As for the narration, it's well done. He nearly sounds like Gerrard is reading the book himself! There were a few patches where the cadence of each sentence was too similar and you can drift, but it's a small gripe for an overall great performance.

What a book. What a beauty.

Scouser born and bred

If you love Liverpool FC you will love everything about the captain we love. Narration was spot on to Stevie and felt as if he was the one narrating.

The story bounces back between his struggles of Liverpool FC and his struggles with International duty. The main plot of his biography is the amazing 2013-2014 season with Liverpool FC, with flashbacks of his best games in between with the main plot.

I highly recommend this book to any open hearted football fan about one of the greatest footballers of all time

Oh you Beauty!

They found a wonderful narrator and it is more artfully told than I expected (ie) it narrates the last two seasons while also dipping deftly into the most important moments of his career.

Great insights into one of the most gifted footballers England and Europe has ever seen.

I loved this book. The reader has a Liverpool accent which makes for a great experience. It's as though you are actually listening to Stevie G at times. I'm an Arsenal supporter but this book is great for anyone who interested in learning about the history of Liverpool and understand the special relationship that city has with our beautiful game of football.
