Inside stories, lurid tales, embarrassing incidents: soccer legend George Best has gathered together his favourite stories of his and his friends' anecdotes and observations from their experiences in and out of the game over the last forty years.About the Author:
Blessed with an extraordinary gift, George Best brought a beauty and grace to football. Christened the Fifth Beatle at his peak, Best was the first pop star footballer and had teenage girls flocking to Old Trafford decades before the likes of Giggs and Beckham. Unable to cope with the success and fame that his talent brought him, Best fell into alcoholism and his life has been littered with tales of women, sex and drink. Despite well-documented problems with his health and private life over the past few years, George Best has shown that he still retains the energy and character that have made him an icon to his many fans.
