A honest autobiography that should be read by anyone that just dismisses Di Canio as a mad man, giving his side to the story and being completely open about many if the issues in his life on abs off of the pitch

This really does give a lot of insight into what make the man tick. It's perceptively ghosted by Gabriele Marcotti. I only hope that they produce a vol. 2, covering, inter alia, PdC's time at Swindon Town FC.

Like his playing career, his life story is part brilliant, part mad and full of inconsistencies. His political views are at times disturbing.

A good read for those who watched the great man play with a tiramisu recipe thrown in at the end for good measure!

I've only read it in Italian. It's a fascinating look into the mind of one of the most interesting profiles in European football for the last couple of decades.

Random at times, no more so than when the last chapter ends with a tiramisu recipe and a chat about Mussolini. Good insight though into a very principled man
