Description

No Nonsense 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

    I found this book very open and honest. Joey Barton is quite clearly a smart man who has anger issues. However, as he gets older and more mature he realises his mistakes and learns from them. I believe he will be fantastic manager 1 day. Worth a read for any football fan.

    The book has confirmed my original opinion of Mr.Barton. He has always struck me as a hard working guy although Being ostracised by the sporting media & public. The book gives an honest insight into his journey through life & his chosen profession. His assessment of situations & people are spot on & very enlightening. The ban given to him by the FA is absolutely disgusting,and has no bearing on his betting demeanour. If it had been anyone else it would have been 6 to 10 games. The FA have obviously judged him on his prior misgivings during his previous years. Talk about equal & human rights,they have certainly not been applied in his case,they should be totally ashamed of themselves. A large amount of their income comes from various betting companies,they are total hypocrites & a disgrace to the game.

    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.

    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.
