Bestie : A Portrait of a Legend, Paperback Book

Bestie : A Portrait of a Legend Paperback

3 out of 5 (1 rating)


George Best's years with Manchester United made him a footballing legend nothing can tarnish.

Indifferent seasons with lesser clubs, publicly disastrous liaisons, and an ongoing battle with alcoholism did nothing to erase the memories of this charismatic man.

This insightful biography tells the story of his troubled relationship with his family in Belfast, his near-adoption by Matt Busby, his tensions with Bobby Charlton, his wives and lovers, and the serious personal failures, both on and off the pitch that brought him notoriety.

Affectionate and revealing, it is a sympathetic account of the life of a flawed genius, one who brought joy to football fans everywhere.

Dont get me wrong this is a good read but this was my third read about the great man and I preferred the other two. If this is your only book on best then its there to be enjoyed.
