From the cover: Jimmy Greaves, author, has scored again with a gripping sequel to his best-selling autobiography, This Ones On Me. In this book Greavsie gives a fascinating insight into the trials and tribulations, the triumphs and disasters following his recovery from the curse of alcoholism.
Told with his inimitable humour and no-holds-barred frankness, Jimmy peppers Its A Funny Old Life with a parade of amusing anecdotes and telling observations. Greavsie writes with remarkable openness about his new life in television, and about having to confront problems that could easily have driven him back to the booze. He reveals the difficulties that still beset him, introduces the family he kept together despite his drink nightmare, takes shots at the people he accuses of ruining British football, and he gives an A to Z assessment of television that is both irreverent and hilarious. Included also is a factfile that records the highlights of Jimmys amazing footballing career.
So far, writes Greavsie, the second half of my life has been even more hectic than the first. Find out why by reading Its A Funny Old Life.
