Description

Nobody knows George Best quite like his ex-wife Angie. The couple were the Victoria and David Beckham of their time and the much-publicised relationship was conducted in the full glare of the media spotlight. Being with George was an emotional roller-coaster ride during which Angie occasionally soared the heights but, much more often, endured soul-destroying lows. Life with George Best was always "interesting". This candid autobiography provides an insight into George's decline. With honesty, Angie details the battles with the booze, the non-stop womanising and the deterioration of one of Britain's greatest footballers. Angie tried to remain in contact with George, offering support and advice to help him conquer his alcohol addiction. Despite everything George put her through, Angie admits: "I remain good friends with George. He is the only man I ever loved". "George and me" is a tale of one woman's battle to find the strength to leave and then rebuild her own life.show more

About Angie Best

Angie Best left her home in Essex at the age of 18 and quickly carved out a career for herself in both modelling and fitness training. It was while working with actress and singer Cher in the late seventies that Angie first met footballing icon George Best. The two were married for six long, hard, difficult years, during which Angie endured her husband's drinking, womanising and verbal abuse. Still a fitness trainer to the stars. Angie lives a relatively quiet life in California, where she keeps a check on the international modelling career of her (and George's) son Calum. Nicola Pittam is a former Sun journalist now based in Los Angeies.show more
