To mark the 50th anniversary of his debut for Manchester United, Duncan Hamilton examines Best's crowded life and premature death. But most importantly, Hamilton presents Best at his glorious peak - the precocious goals, the labyrinthine runs, the poise and balletic balance and the body swerves. This is George Best: footballing immortal.

Would recommend to any football fan.
Any additional comments?
Having enjoyed Duncan Hamilton’s brilliant biography of Brian Clough “Provided you don’t kiss me! (PLEASE SOMEONE RECORD THIS FOR AUDIBLE!!!) I thought I would give this a go.
Being a child of the 1980’s all I remember of George best is that ill fated appearance on Wogan and Best being a byword for wasted talent and drunkenness so I was looking forward to learning more about this “genius” This well written and engaging book was extremely enjoyable. The narration is good and I felt like a picture was being panted throughout. With the help of You Tube I have trawled through clips of the goals and events described in the book and found these only to add to the experience.
All in all a very informative and interesting book.

There is only ONE George Best !
The first chapter of this mans amazing story had me in tears. Over the years I have followed George Best's rise and fall and have to say this book portrays an incedible journey of GB's life with so many amazing insights, facts and details that were a complete revelation to me. An extreemly well read book and it dosent much matter if you care for football or not. This story is not about football, its about a gifted mans journey through life, worts and all !!
