Robbie Fowler's autobiography:
Fowler: My Autobiography Amazon.co.uk Sales Rank: 979
An unvarnished account of a gutsy, gritty player with no illusion of star power. He does it all.
Here is a review:
This book is a lot more than your typical football autobiography. This is Robbie's attempt to tell his remarkable story from Toxteth to Anfield and beyond, as well as putting to bed the rumours about drug addiction that have plagued his career since the early days, exposing the truth behind how he was very deceitfully forced out of the club he gave everything to and ultimately standing up to those who said he was finished as a footballer.
Robbie is the first to admit he is no saint and he honestly describes the events that have landed him in hot water, but it would be extremely hard for supporters of any team not to sympathise with this player whose career has been ravaged by injury since late 1997 and whose "personal life" has been created by the media who have always sought to destroy him.
A great read for anyone who is a Robbie fan, a football fan, or even a fan of a fascinating story well told.
