    1. Quite haunting really, to read here how Glenn Hoddle, then England Manager, excluded Paul Gascoigne from the 1998 World Cup finals. Gazza goes into a destructive frenzy, rage and Hoddle says: "The thing is, Gazza, your head is not right". Yet Hoddle and Gazza were birds of the same feather as far as football is concerned; both of them (from slightly different eras) were superb on the pitch with their pin-point passing and devastating free kicks. Alas both of them hardly fulfilled their potential [...]


    2. Simply the best bio I've ever read, funny, honest, sad, revealing & highly entertaining.If you know gazza, you'll know that he is full of stories from the football world.One of my all time favourite booksHighly recommended


    3. He’s the footballer we love to hate to love – Paul Gascoigne, one of the original ‘bad boys‘ of football, a man who’s faced many of the same struggles as George Best. His bestselling autobiography covers everything you’d expect, from his early career to his downfall at the hands of drink and drugs.In fact, My Story leaves off before the modern day, which can only be a blessing – since its publication, the ex-footballer has been dismissed from his managerial post at Kettering Town a [...]


    4. This book was really hard to rate. Yes, it looks honest, and you can't help but appreciate the candour. However, you also can't help but loathe certain personality traits that Gazza exudes in his writings. I liked that the book reads like he's actually talking to you. I read it all in his voice. In the first half, you may shake your head and despair for the chirpy, child-like prankster, and it may seem like he hasn't yet outgrown high school, but it's hard to get through that part of the book wi [...]


    5. At a time when English football fans can only look on with envy at the types of players the rest of the world seem to be able to produce, I decided to pick up a copy of Gazza: My Story and wonder what just might have been.The result was far more frustrating than enjoyable as I found myself shaking my head like a disappointed father more times than laughing at the ridiculous situations Gazza got himself into during a playing career which was wrecked by injury and self destruction.Paul Gascoigne w [...]


    6. Great book Gazza. I have read many biographies and I really enjoyed this one. Gazza should have been protected. What a fantastic player. Sadly mixed up though. Gazza was one of a kind.🐯👍


    7. Absolutely fantastic autobiography this. I finished this in less than 2 days and just could not put it down. funny, happy, sad, depressing, calm, it has everything. Highly highly recommended if your a fan of Gazza


    8. Brutally honest! But one can't help but feel, especially as you near the end that Paul Gascoigne (PG)tries, sometimes, too hard to convince he's not a bad person and that he's really sorry for all the wrongs he's done. Great insight into his troubled life, and the book leaves you feeling a strange array of emotions for Gazza. From pure admiration to hatred - Gazza - runs through it all, and oft time leaves you feeling genuinely sympathetic for him or has you in complete awe. I was glad to learn [...]


    9. i loved this. so honestly written and hilarious at times and sad at times also. for me the greatest attacking footballer from England in the last 30 years. name me another? the book talks about his problems with drink and depression but also hilariously talks about all the brilliant pranks he pulled (although i would never eat a mince pie from him if he offered me one ;) very endearing and if its true what he wrote about giving all those cars and houses away to his nearest and dearest to the poi [...]


    10. Gazza is a tough read while detailing his football career, Paul Gascoigne describes in great detail the battles he fought (with himself) dealing with alcoholism, drugs, paranoi, OCD, probably even ADHD (although) it's not defined as such. Paul's writer, Hunter Davies, allows Paul to spend too much time on these subjects, the negative aspects, that it is hard to believe Gascoigne when he says he is happy. However, I think it is an important read, as there are several people in the world fighting [...]


    11. I enjoyed this book as a Gazza fan and football fan of the 90s. It brought back some lovely memories of the World Cup 90 and Euro 96 and there are some interesting insights to what really happens to a footballer and what the public are told! Although it felt quite rushed over certain eras and I'm not sure he has been totally open and honest about his troubles along the way, I'm sure he was papering over the cracks. Its also sad that it finished 9 years ago with him clean, sober and optimistic fo [...]


    12. Reading this has made me glad I have no exceptional skills! It is written as though he is just talking and seems quite honest though he does attempt to address some of the "lies" the press have written about him and it just made me wonder more than ever what's true and what's not. Feel really sorry for the guy, alcohol is a terrible addiction, but I think this book made clear he has had mental health issues throughout his life and his current condition seemed inevitable. The book is gripping and [...]


    13. Full and frank account of Gazza's life, which leaves you feeling bitterly disappointed, for what this man could have done had it not been for the demon dribk. The book is well written and keeps things relevant and interesting, some times these biographies harp on about nonsense for no reason. To say its a must for any football fan goes without saying, but I believe non football fans would enjoy this.


    14. Possible the worse autobiography I have read. Actually it is. Gazza in denial about booze and always the victim. Reading this book, if you see further than his side of the story will reveal that he would still be the mess he is today. Shame as he had a unique talent but the immaturity shone through in this book making it a book I just wanted out of the way in the end.


    15. Honest and funny account of his life. I found the book hilarious and although others are saying they were frustrated with Gazzas antics, I don't think you should have a view other than the fact every genius has a touch of madness and without it they would never have been the genius we were undoubtedly reading about in the first place.


    16. Read this about 5 years ago. Its a shame where his life has gone but that's what happens when you marry the wrong woman and get taken to the cleaners. Its a great read about a gifted but flawed genius and a legend of english football.


    17. I read George Best and now Gazza, it is so depressing seeing such talent as Gazza and George Best ruin their live and success with alcohol is not a motivational book rather something to help you watch out what might happen during success


    18. Written before recent problems, it's now somewhat tragic reading Gazza telling us how he's going to be ok. Great stories about his glory days for Spurs and England. Tinged with sadness throughout though.


    19. reading this book shed new light on a man we all think we know so well, gazza shows here that we don't no him at all and his story was very honest and showed him not only the footballer but the man behind the shirt as well


    20. One the best autobiography. The honesty with he describes the most embarrassing things is exceptional. Most books I read only good things this has all the bad things and truth. Worth a read to every football fan.







    21. 3 to 3.5 stars.This is a book that gets better with every page you read. A fairly decent read about one of the most controversial & talked-about English footballers in recent times. Recommended.
