'Searingly honest' THE SUN
'A thoroughly entertaining rampage' Matt Dickinson, THE TIMES BOOKS OF THE YEAR
No. 1 bestselling memoir of Roy Keane, former captain of Manchester United and Ireland - co-written with Man Booker Prize-winner Roddy Doyle.
In a stunning collaboration with Booker Prize-winning author Roddy Doyle, Roy Keane gives a brutally honest account of his last days as a player, the highs and lows of his managerial career, and his life as an outspoken ITV pundit.
'Roy Keane's book is a masterpiece . . . It may well be the finest, most incisive deconstruction of football management that the game has ever produced' Mail on Sunday
'A genuine pleasure . . . His thoughts on his players are humane, interesting, candid and never less than believable' The Times
'The best things are the small things: regretting joining Ipswich when he discovered the training kit was blue; refusing to sign Robbie Savage because his answerphone message was rubbish; being appalled that his side had listened to an Abba song before playing football' Evening Standard
'The book is brilliantly constructed, rattling along at breakneck speed . . . full of self-deprecation . . . a ruthless self-examination' Daily Telegraph

One of the most influential people in the game, I have learned a lot of Roy Keane through his honest opinions and I try to emulate his unique characteristics in my game. He is one of the most underrated players to have beer played the game!
Keano always entertains
Felt like everything Roy does....honest and passionate. Not going to win the Booker prize. He is his own biggest critic but you wonder if sometimes this is counter productive. I love him!!
