Brilliant

Just finished this book & it was excellent, one of the best Audiobooks I have listened to in a long time, gritty & self-effacing, I liked the fact that not every punch broke a nose or shattered a jaw & Gary didn't try to make himself out to be a hero just a genuine hard Man with a good story to tell...
