Description

THE CROSS SPORTS BOOK AWARDS AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF THE YEAR
The Sunday Times bestseller is 'brilliant, gripping, beautifully written, real,' says Jonathan Northcroft.


So, you think you know Joey Barton. Think again. No Nonsense is a game-changing autobiography which will redefine the most fascinating figure in British football. It is the raw yet redemptive story of a man shaped by rejection and the consequences of his mistakes. He has represented England, and been a pivotal player for Manchester City, Newcastle United, Queens Park Rangers, Marseille, Burnley and Glasgow Rangers, but his career has featured recurring controversy. The low point of being sent to prison for assault in 2008 proved to be the catalyst for the re-evaluation of his life.   

No Nonsense reflects Barton’s character – it is candid, challenging, entertaining and intelligent. He does not spare himself, in revealing the formative influences of a tough upbringing in Liverpool, and gives a survivor’s insight into a game which, to use his phrase, 'eats people alive'. The book is emotionally driven, and explains how he has redirected his energies since the birth of his children. In addition to dealing with his past, he expands on his plans for the future. In this updated edition he speaks frankly about the gambling addiction that has left him facing a hefty ban. The millions who follow his commentaries on social media, and those who witnessed him on BBC’s Question Time, will be given another reason to pause, and look beyond the caricature.

'Compelling' Donald McRae, Guardian

'Brilliant' Matt Lawton, Daily Mail

Ha ha

Had to buy this book to see what Joey says about them (Rangers) mon the hoops

Ok......

Bought this as I thought it'd be really entertaining. It really wasn't. He does come across far better than the image I had from the media though, so for that I am glad I read it. The chapters are long winded and you feel he's far more interested in writing about the psychology of his decisions and experiences than actually just writing an entertaining book.

Rubbish

Joeys stories seem to be mostly made up and fanciful. He's never been a loved player at any club yet struts about like he's set the heather aflame. Complete waste of money.
