THE CROSS SPORTS BOOK AWARDS AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF THE YEAR
The Sunday Times bestseller is 'brilliant, gripping, beautifully written, real,' says Jonathan Northcroft.
So, you think you know Joey Barton. Think again.
No Nonsense is the raw yet redemptive story of a man shaped by rejection and the consequences of his mistakes. He has represented England, and been a pivotal player for Manchester City, Newcastle United, Queens Park Rangers, Marseille, Burnley and Glasgow Rangers, but his career has featured recurring controversy. The low point of being sent to prison for assault in 2008 proved to be the catalyst for the re-evaluation of his life.
Barton reveals the formative influences of a tough upbringing in Liverpool, gives a survivor’s insight into a game which, to use his phrase, 'eats people alive' and speaks frankly about the gambling addiction that has left him facing a hefty ban. In addition to dealing with his past, he also expands on his plans for the future, and explains how he has redirected his energies since the births of his children.
Candid, challenging, entertaining and intelligent, No Nonsense, is the game-changing autobiography that redefines the most fascinating figure in British football.
