The book was picked up for me at a car boot sale, almost six months ago. I put off reading this one all that time. Not sure I really wanted to read it at all. After finally completing this book, I am surprised how good it is. 'My Side' I'm sure are all D.B.'s own words, probably spoken into a tape machine for collaborator Tom Watt to bring together. Published in 2003, this autobiography tells Beckham's 'side' of the story regarding his exit from Old Trafford, after 12 years at the club. It begins at the beginning with his family life and journey through junior football to the professional game. Also including his England career under Hoddle, Keegan and Eriksson. Disclosure of behind the scenes M.U.F.C. incidents that are left out of both Scholes and Keane's books will be interesting to United fans.
A book that gets rid of much of the press hype that surrounds Posh and Becks and one of the better biogs from the modern game.

Petra Eggs Are he and his wife the chavs they always seem to be in the media?

Pete daPixie Filthy rich chavs if they are. No, the book portrays two of the ordinary type who have struck the dosh...successful at what they do. He describes their world as bubble beckham and I suppose the media distort things even more.
