Bob Wilson's intriguing and candid autobiography makes for fascinating reading. He spent 39 years at Arsenal, as player then as the first goalkeeping coach in the first division.

Following his retirement as a footballer, a career in TV beckoned, making Bob Wilson a household name. His days as a sports commentator and presenter at the BBC and subsequent switch to ITV are reflected upon, as well as his account of the Grobbelaar trial and his relationships with some of the most popular names in sport and TV, including Des Lynam, Jimmy Hill and David Seaman. He also has affectionate memories of Jill Dando and Helen Rollason, and tells the moving story of his daughter's illness and legacy.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Astonishing...goalkeeper, coach, broadcaster and brilliant chronicler of his family history, Wilson is one of those inspirational figures. * Daily Telegraph *
A fascinating and deeply affecting story. * Independent *
This is the autobiography of a brave goalkeeper and an even braver man... its power is more concentrated due to the welcome absence of a ghostwriter. * Time Out *
Absorbing and uplifting. * Evening Standard *
Easily the best footballer's autobiography around this season. It is unusual among its peers in that the former Arsenal goalkeeper wrote it himself. * Daily Telegraph *
A compelling story...Wilson is an articulate spokesman for the enduring honour of the game. * The Scotsman *
There are two chapters so riveting that they must surely put him in the starting blocks for the upcoming William Hill Sports Book of the Year citation * Daily Mail *
