Riassunto: 'Tom Bower is a brave man - he could not have stayed in business as an investigative biographer but for his command of detail and commitment to the truth' Spectator From the author of devastating exposes of Mohamed Fayed, Richard Branson and, most recently, Geoffrey Robinson, this is a superbly incisive account of how self-interested individuals, adopting questionable and predatory business methods, are exploiting the sport of football to earn billions of pounds and huge glory. Focusing on key figures including Terry Venables, Ken Bates, David Dein, Harry Redknapp and other famous agents, chairmen and managers, Bower exposes the money, the politics, and the vicious battles behind the beautiful game. For the first time a non-sports writer reveals the vanity and greed which endanger the national sport.
L'autore: Tom Bower has a distinguished reputation as an investigative historian, award-winning television producer and journalist. He is the author of several highly praised books about tycoons including Tiny Rowland, Mohamed Fayed, Robert Maxwell and most recently Richard Branson. His books on the Nazis - Blind Eye To Murder, The Paperclip Conspiracy and Blood Money - are regarded as groundbreaking, as are his two books on British intelligence, The Red Web and his biography of Sir Dick White. He lives in London with his family.
