    Guys - I read his book over a 2 day period. Have a read lads. It's a fantastic read.
    Some really, really funny stuff in there about Cliffy Lyons, and some wonderful insight
    into the Super League war !

    You can buy it from the staff shop at MSE, and they send it to you really quickly.

    Great Christmas present ! Fathers day gift for me ! I spoke so much about it to the missus,
    that she actually had a dream about the man ! (And NOT the dirty type - LoL).

    This is the 1st biography I have read (I'm too self centered to care about OTHER peoples lives - hhehe), but seriously guys - have a read if you have the time or inclination.

    I agree Ryan. Great read and should be on the shelf of any Manly supporter (that is literate!!!)

    Because it was Beaver i found it a good read, but in terms of auto/biographies i've read lately i'd rank them thusly:

    1) A.Johns
    2) A.Gilcrhist
    3) R.Ponting
    4) S.Warne
    5) S. Menzies
    6) M.Ridge

    Just finished the Roberts one the other day, and started on the Beaver last night

    I agree Matt, the Johns one was a damn good read. I also liked Ridgeys one a lot.

    Read Bill Harrigans a few years back, found it a surprisingly good read

    haha Ridgey's one was like he was telling a yarn to his mate. Everything was like "and hoppa said this" then "Hill said this"

    i'm probably expecting too much out of a footballer though
