Description

A back-street boy from a broken home, a hod-carrier who became captain of Wales, a loving husband who has experienced much lonliness and many more tears, the countryman who became a huge film star, Vinne Jones has never been a one-dimensional character. At last the chance has come for him to tell his story and hit back at his critics. A player like no other, Vinnie's autobiography is like the man himself: open, honest and without fear.show more
