Yes I was thinking of getting the book yesterday when I had a read through it. But for some reason the picture section which I always like about an autobiography made me a little turned off. The text underneath some of the pictures is wrong, different years, different stages of a championship are incorrect. It is a very small thing but its the small things that make a good book. Having said that I havent read the book yet, but the first piece of text in chap 1 is good, id say it is a good read. Ewan Mc Kenna you need to go over your GAA history a bit more though!

The word is that he's just holding back in it a la cody last year, being a cute h**r, saying nothing, don't know why people like that bring out a book.

have to say it was an easy read with the usual autob story - all very tame and non controversial - would love to see himself and Moynihan manage Kerry some day.

undrine, with autobiographies, it is 99.99 per cent of the time the actual footballer who does the picture section, nothing to do with the ghost writer. Maybe you need to go over your facts a little more first.

Is it true that DOS says he would trade in his 6 A-I medals with Kerry for an A-I club medal with An Ghaeltacht? Or is this just an urban myth?
