    reading Mike Tysons autobiography.
    It backs up my theory that no one should be allowed to write a book about their lives until at least their retirement.
    The bloke is nothing if not honest.
    bit sad really.

    Ricky Ponting's autobiography...as said before, they are so much more interesting when people have retired.

    The football autobiography I'm waiting for is Bozza's (if he can remember it all).

    Currently reading A song of Ice and Fire, finished Game of Thrones and Clash of Kings now reading book 1 of a Storm of swords. some of the best writing I have ever read. need to start watching the TV series as well to catch up.
    Sounds good, i'll have to read them soon!

    The Stand is awesome!
    I also really enjoyed the Regulators and Desperation. They go together.
    Also Blaze (Bachman); thought about the story for a long time after i read that.

    you're in for a real treat. I'm 250 odd pages into part 2 and it really is just the best fantasy I've ever read. it takes the manual and dips it in oil and sets it a fire with dragons breath. I haven't been so upset and so elated by a novel ever in my life.

    This isn't an attempted stab at Manure fans or anything of the like..

    I'm currently about 3/4 of the way through SAF's book. Man, I'm finding it so poorly written.

    He'll write one sentence that brings up say Djemba Djemba, then he'll have 2-3 paragraphs on complete waffle that don't relate to anything, then he'll write almost the exact same sentence about Djemba Djemba as if he'd never derailed from that thought, but also as if the second sentence gives some form of insight that he hadn't already brought up.

    It feels like SAF is holding back a lot of the views and thoughts he really wants to say about people and situations, and it just ends up that he basically says nothing at all.

    For every interesting insight I get from reading this book, there's about 2 pages of pure garbage.

    Coming off the back of reading Dennis Bergkamp's and Zlatan's books, which I consider to be two of the better football books I've ever read, this SAF book is an actual chore to get through.

    So, do we know any journo types who might consider doing Griff's memoirs as his playing career winds down?

    I loved Roy Keane's first autobiography, and by the sounds of it he hasn't calmed down at all for this second one. Keen to get ahold of it!
