The best parts of this book are the specific stories of transfers that did or didn't happen, as well as hearing about the different characters of certain United players and an insight into Sir Alex's thoughts about them and their relationships. The book seems to jump from player to player in no specific order, which keeps things fresh, as you don't know where it is headed or what the next topic will be. All of the expected are mentioned i.e. Beckham, Cantona, Keane, Ronaldo etc. but it's fascinating to hear the stories of some of the forgotten or less talked about players like Anderson, Barthez, Saha, Bebe, to name a few. Though it also shares stories of Sir Alex's personal life, before and after football management. As well as his thoughts on the David Moyes appointment and how it went wrong. All in all it is a must read/listen for every United fan and beyond.

Forgettable to be honest

Looking at the reviews I feel this is a bit overrated. It's not bad per say, but I barely remember any of it now after listening to it a couple of months ago. I will say that Kevin is a great talker and is easy to listen to. It's all pretty basic stuff though. I am glad other people are getting a lot out of it.

Awesome relatable book

Really enjoyed this. It's very interesting to hear from somebody with a true rags to riches story. It just goes to show you can do anything if you put your mind to it. There are some great little nuggets in here that I will remember.

I wish there was another one

JR's first book was the first audio book I had listened to. I then mixed it up a little and came back to his second book a little later. I have to say that I have enjoyed these the most so far. JR's stories are incredible. He has lived a very interesting life and knows so many characters. I honestly can't see how many other people's stories can live up to this. Some of the situations that JR has found himself in are so unique and whacky, all thanks to the crazy wrestling world he found himself in. He has been dealt some very difficult cards, but has persevered through it all, and came out the other side an absolute legend. It's inspiring how tough this guy really is. I'd find it hard to believe that there are any better wrestling books than this. So if you're a fan, do yourself a favour and listen to this. Thank you JR for sharing.

It's a good listen but

As a lifelong wrestling fan, I enjoyed listening to this book. I really like Justin as a ring announcer so it's a shame to hear about how he had to dial it back while he was in the WWE. It gives great insight into some of the people behind the scenes and how they really are. However Justin comes across very whiny to me here and acts like he never put a foot wrong. I have no doubt that it was difficult to work in the WWE and for certain people, but you have to take things on the chin, learn from it and move on. Justin's book is a must if you're a wrestling fan, but it is very negative, towards the WWE in particular.

Great insight into a legend's career

This was an interesting listen and it gives insight into how JR got into the business, as well as some fine nuggets about many icons of the industry i.e. Roddy Piper, Vince McMahon, even some great stories of Muhammad Ali, and the list goes on. Perfect for any wrestling fan. Will definitely pick up the second book.
