Publisher's Summary

Ian Wright, Arsenal legend, England striker and TV pundit extraordinaire, is one of the most interesting and relevant figures in modern football. His journey from a South London council estate to national treasure is everybody's dream.

From Sunday morning football directly to Crystal Palace; from 'boring, boring Arsenal' to inside the Wenger Revolution; from Saturday afternoons on the pitch to Saturday evenings on primetime television; from a week in prison to inspiring youth offenders, Ian will reveal all about his extraordinary life and career.

Ian will also frankly discuss how retirement affects footballers, why George Graham deserves a statue, social media, why music matters, breaking Arsenal's goal-scoring record, racism, the unadulterated joy of playing alongside Dennis Bergkamp and, of course, what he thinks about Tottenham.

Not a standard footballer's autobiography, Ian Wright's memoir is a thoughtful and gripping insight into a Highbury hero and one of the greatest sports stars of recent years.

    "Best I've read!"

    Read a lot of bios recently but this one really goes behind the scenes from a young lost boy to an Arsenal hero.

    Also great insight to methods and philosophy behind Arsene wenger!

    Didn't want this book to end!

    "Brilliant story"

    Fantastic story, excellent narration. A must listen for everyone. The story is a black man living in London during the 70's 80's and 90's personified.

    "From one of my life heros"

    Ian Wright lived and best of all loved and loves his life. An honest account of a privileged life i.e. that of a professional footballer. Thanks Ian I really enjoyed the book.

    Story
    "Wrighty - an incredible guy"

    An excellent resume of Ian's life read by someone who sounded just like Wrighty, which made it more enjoyable and real. I loved his enthusiasm and the way he portrayed his life - warts and all. He gained more respect including the negative side rather than merely promoting the positives. A great man and a fabulous read.

    "Loved it"

    I grew up in the same patch as Wrighty so this book was of interesting especially as an arsenal fan aswell. Wright was our local hero. This is very well organised, heart felt, honest and informative. A must listen /read for anyone. Especially for insights into the football world.

    "Typically Ian Wight"

    Typical hilarity passion and honesty of Ian Wight . This biography is so entertaining witty and sounds so real you live every step with him. The only disappointment is that it's not read by Wrighty.

    "Ian Wright the Man Listen to this"

    A great story about the Arsenal legend

    In my opinion a frank and honest account of ordinary lad brought up on the wrong side of the tracks whose life could have been completely different if it wasn't for his strength of character .
    If you love football and a good story this is a must.
