The Sunday Times no.1 bestselling memoir from Harry Redknapp
‘From kicking a ball as a kid under the street lamps of Poplar and standing on Highbury's North Bank with my dad, to my first game at West Ham, I was born head over heels in love with football. It saved me, and 50 years on that hasn't changed one bit - I'd be lost without it…’
Harry is the manager who has seen it all - from a dismal 70s Portakabin at Oxford City and training pitches with trees in the middle to the unbeatable highs of the Premiership, lifting the FA Cup and taking on Real Madrid in the Champions League. With his much loved, no-nonsense delivery, Harry brings us a story filled with passion and humour that takes you right inside every drama of his career.
Harry finally tells the full story of all the controversial ups and downs - the pain and heartache of his court case, the England job, his love for Bobby Moore, his adventures at Portsmouth with Milan Mandaric, the Southampton debacle, Tottenham and Daniel Levy, and not forgetting his years at West Ham or the challenges at his current club QPR.
It’s the epic journey of one of the great managers and, along the way, the story of the British game itself over the last five decades. In an era now dominated by foreign coaches Harry is the last of an old-fashioned breed of English football man - one who has managed to move with the times and always come out fighting.

Gutted it’s not ‘arry
You would of thought with his natural ability to tell a great story Harry himself would of narrated this book. Getting someone to do a quite clear impersonation of him just adds insult to injury.
As someone who will only purchase biographies if read by the person who’s story it is I feel let down by the great man.
It’s your Life Harry why did you let this happen?
Indeed I’m convinced if this was updated on audiobook to include the great mans voice it would quite literally 'fly on the ears’ I’d happy pay double the amount.
Wanted this to listen to this in the car, but that guy would have me sticking forks in my ears. Why didn't Harry narrate this himself? Would have made a great audio book listening to his emotion in his voice. Total respect for Harry and that's from a life long gooner. I'll buy the book and read on the next holiday.
Blame the "narrator"
Was really looking forward to this but the narrator is awful, really awful. Wanted this to listen to on holiday but can't bear the thought of listening to this divvy for 13 hours of my life! Why Harry! WHY!!!
