Thinking Out Loud – A courageous and moving memoir – Just 99p 0 comments

In 2015, former England football star Rio Ferdinand suddenly and tragically lost his wife and soulmate Rebecca, aged 34, to cancer. It was a profound shock and Rio found himself struggling to cope not just with the pain of his grief, but also with his new role as both mum and dad to their three young children.
Rio’s BBC1 documentary, Being Mum and Dad, touched everyone who watched it and won huge praise for the honesty and bravery he showed in talking about his emotions and experiences. His book now shares the story of meeting, marrying and losing Rebecca, his own and the family’s grief – as well as the advice and support that get him through each day as they strive to piece themselves back together.
Thinking Out Loud is written in the hope that he can inspire others struggling with loss and grief to find the help they need through this most difficult of times.

Running My Life – The Autobiography – Winning On and Off the Track – Just 99p 0 comments

One second in time may separate the great athlete from the merely good. Seb Coe has made every second count. From an early age he has been driven to be the best at everything he does. Since the moment Coe stood alongside a ‘scrubby’ municipal running track in Sheffield, he knew that sport could change his life. It did.
Breaking an incredible twelve world records and three of them in just forty-one days, Seb became the only athlete to take gold at 1500 metres in two successive Olympic Games (Moscow 1980 and Los Angeles 1984).
Running My Life is in turns exhilarating, inspiring, amusing, and extremely moving. Everyone knows where Sebastian Coe ended up. Few people realise how he got there. This is his personal journey. Buy it today for only 99p.

Big Sam – My Autobiography – One of the most recognisable figures in British football – Just 99p 0 comments

With nearly 20 years as a player – plus almost 25 years as a coach and manager – under his belt, Sam Allardyce is one of the most recognisable figures in British football.
‘Big Sam’ has been a robust defensive general throughout the seventies and eighties, and an imposing touchline presence as a gaffer since 1994. Before he took the England manager’s job in July 2016, he was the second longest-serving manager in the Premier League, behind Arsene Wenger.
Over the last 42 years, Allardyce has seen it all. The game he so loves is radically different to that in which he made his debut back in 1973, and in telling his wonderfully colourful story for the very first time, Allardyce talks intriguingly about the changing face of players and managers. His autobiography positively crackles with characteristic insight, honesty and hard-hitting opinions.
