George Best needs little introduction. A legend in his own lifetime, he is undoubtedly the greatest footballer the UK has ever produced. At his peak he brought glamour and grace to the game, second only in the world to Pele. But with success and fame came excess and foolhardiness, and Best's fabled story is littered with tales of his involvement with women and sex and, of course, the drink. Now he is ready to open his heart and engage his readers in the story of his life. This is the frank and honest account of a man who has hit rock bottom on many occasions and who is now prepared to look back and assess his rollercoaster life. In his own words, he recounts the halcyon days at Manchester United, the big games, and European Cup win of 1968. His views on the state of the game then and now, and the key players and managers at Manchester United, are included. And he also tells of the heatbreak at his mother's death, of battles with his ex-wife Angie, and the string of affairs and scandals that have followed him from the bars to the bankruptcy courts, and even to prison. George has kept extensive diaries whilst in rehab, which are shown here.
