Synopsis

Ian Wright, Arsenal legend, England striker and TV pundit extraordinaire, is one of the most interesting and relevant figures in modern football.

His journey from a South London council estate to national treasure is everybody's dream.

From Sunday morning football directly to Crystal Palace; from 'boring, boring Arsenal' to inside the Wenger Revolution; from Saturday afternoons on the pitch to Saturday evenings on primetime television; from a week in prison to inspiring youth offenders Ian Wright has a lot to talk about.

Wright reveals all about his extraordinary life and career. and discusses with a rare frankness how retirement affects footballers, why George Graham deserves a statue, and, most importantly, what he thinks of Spurs.

Not a standard footballer's autobiography, Ian Wright's memoir is a thoughtful and gripping insight into a Highbury Hero and one of the most popular sports stars of recent years.

'Wrighty's characteristic honesty means his book is far more engrossing than most bland football memoirs.' -Sunday Times
