John Quincy Adams Harlow As presidential biographies go, I found this book by Harlow Giles Unger to be well written and quite a page turner Having just read several other much longer biographies of his predecessors, I did notice a few spots where the author glossed over things or inadequately explained stuff, but what the book lacked in long winded scholarship it than made up for in heart. Giles Goat Boy The Anchor Literary Library John Barth Giles Goat Boy is prefaced by pages of introduction, including a disclaimer of sorts by The Editors, who seek to warn readers that the book they re about to begin is decidedly bawdy, disturbing, irreverent, flabbergasting and probably without literary merit.

    One Reply to “John Giles A Football Man”

    1. Being of the red persuasion of Manchester, and old enough to have watched Giles play at Old Trafford in the early sixties, I was particularly interested in reading about his United years. 1956-63 particularly his take on his departure across the Pennines. Chapters 2-9 make up a large part of his autobiography covering this period.Naturally, Johnny Giles' football career is known for his time at Leeds United, and as this covers the period from their second division season through the Revie years [...]

    2. Ah, memories. Must be quite a good book. I hated Johnny Giles when he played for Leeds. I rather liked the fellow who was telling me this story.

    3. All people and events in this book are before my time, and if I'm honest, not all that interesting to me. While I did enjoy learning about Giles' career, it was all a bit pedestrian and political. Almost every time he talked about a falling out with someone, he was quick to let the reader know he invariably enjoyed a drink with so and so, and they're now pensioner bffs. I did enjoy seeing Liam Brady with big hair, that was amusing.

    4. John Giles was a key member of the iconic "dirty, cheating" Leeds United sides of the 60's & 70's. That was all I knew about him before I read this book. He is currently a football correspondent for Irish television. He has obviously mellowed with age, but his opinions still have bite. Even though I'll always dislike Giles the player, I was pleasantly surprised to find that I like Giles the Author very much.

    5. Excellent autiobiography of irelands greatest ever footballer from his humble beginnings in inner city Dublin, to his early career at Man Utd and eventually his time playing for the brilliant Leeds united team of the 60's and 70's. It's very well written with some interesting insights into the players of the time and how much football has changed the years since John has stopped playing. It's a must read for all football fans and particularly Ireland and Leeds fans.

    6. Very well written football autobiography. However, it focuses too much on Giles' club career and not on his international one for my liking. This man was the first ever player-manager of Ireland, but many international games are totally overlooked. That said, it's really insightful with regards to his club career and football in general in the 70s.

    7. A great deal better than most football books, but that is hardly surprising given that the ghost writer is Declan Lynch, an excellent writer who actually has a real and deep interest in football. Giles is honest and interesting and Lynch puts that across well without getting his fingerprints too much on the book. A good and happy partnership.

    8. Nice book for someone who remembers the great footballers of the 70's. Some quite funny anecdotes and some withering comments on the current stars.
