Paul Gascoigne – Gazza


Gazza’s tears in the 1990 World Cup semi-final launched the boom of interest in football that continues to this day. Suddenly, Paul Gascoigne found himself the centre of attention in a way that only George Best and David Beckham have ever experienced.

So much has been written about Gazza over the years, but he has said little – until now. For the first time, he talks in depth about the key events in his life: the injuries that threatened his career, what really happened when he was dropped from Glenn Hoddle’s World Cup squad, his battles with alcoholism and other health problems, as well as his private life away from the spotlight. He also recalls the outrageous antics that have made the headlines, and discusses his hopes for his life after football.

Gazza is loved by fans of the game throughout the country, and his autobiography is quite simply the most remarkable footballing story you’ll ever read.

The book is comprehensive and well-written. The narrator does a very good job too. My complaint is with the audio quality of this book – it’s almost the worst I’ve experienced in all my several years as a listener. The voice is sometimes muffled, then there a “zip” sound and it’s as if the narrator has stepped out of a closet briefly, then “zip” and she’s in an echoey bathroom. The sound is never as good as other audiobooks. Hopefully this won’t prevent your enjoyment of the book, but it IS distracting.
