Written in a different style from the usual sporting biography, its a decent read, Sol is a more interesting character than most footballers, strong, opinionated, not in to the usual nonsense. Good to see things from Sol's perspective and understand how pathetic some of the hate he attracts is. Sol comes across well for me, I was impressed.
Interesting in parts but only because of the person it's based on. Written like a non fictional David Peace novel by the biographer with lots of detail in scenes and intersecting quotes from Sol. Interesting chapters on Notts County and his return to Arsenal. Once you've read it once that's it.
