Great idea – 171 players and their stories! History often looks different from the inside – LEO BARRY

Book overview

One hundred and seventy one of the game’s greatest players and coaches, characters, cult heroes, clubmen and battlers … each telling his life story, the stories of their teams, teammates and times.

Funny, harsh, heartbreaking, inspiring … the highs, lows, controversies, famous victories and narrow losses, grand finals and hard-fought games on forgotten, muddy ovals… this is the history of football as seen, not by spin doctors or journalists, but entirely in the words of those who were out there playing.

From the 1940s to now – a warts-and-all book, giving an inside look into the blood and guts and inner workings of footy through stories big and small, and the determination and courage it takes to be involved.
