    1. I don't think there is and AFL fan in Australia who has not seen or heard media reports about the 'bad behaviour' of Wayne Carey since his now infamous affair with his team-mate's wife in 2002. I definitely had my preconceived ideas about what I would find when I read this 'tell-all' book, and I have to say I was taken by surprise about some of the things that I learnt about Wayne Carey along the way.The first few chapters hit you hard with an overview of early home-life in the Carey household. [...]


    2. I had to read this book for work and, with that in mind, I approached it with reluctance. It is not the type of book I would read through choice. Having said that, I found it compelling. It's not well written, it is a sad and pathetic story in many ways (Wayne Carey's childhood is shocking) that, as it continues, just gets worse. Despite being given opportunities, love, money, and the chance to shine ( which he did - he dazzled), Carey sabotages all the chances he is given every step of the way. [...]


    3. This book should be sub-titles "lessons from a slow learner' because at one stage of his life, that surely is what Mr Carey was.The first couple of chapters detail a childhood that can only be described as brutal, harsh and nasty. A childhood, which as Wayne himself admits, led at times to make decisions that were not wise later on in life.The next few chapters, describe life as a rising AFL player, and a accomplished one. To read what he was doing to himself while off the field, makes one wonde [...]


    4. Interesting insight into a wide variety of subjects, including elite level sport, domestic violence, drugs, mental illness and much more. Although Carey seems genuinely remorseful of some of his past actions, the remorse itself seems to also become a bit of a get out of jail card. I wish him well though as he genuinely seems to be trying.


    5. Enjoyed this story. I had no idea of the challenges Wayne faced as a child and how this must have impacted who he became. I read it straight through in just a couple of sittings. Is he telling us everything? I doubt it, but don't let that put you off. If you have ever marveled at the man either on or off the field, you might find this as compelling to read as I did.


    6. Excellent read. Really gives an insight into what was going on in this man's life from a very young age. I have now changed my opinion of him. Well done Wayne for the brutal honesty you shared with us.


    7. Great read up until he left North, plops from the day he left onwards Privileged white guy screwing over his best friend, getting on drugs and beating his girlfriend and then writing as a victim give it a spell mate



    8. this book really gave me a good understanding on just how tough his childhood was and how his dad treated his family.



    9. 4 stars.An interesting book that I am happy to have read. The writing had room for improvement but that didn't take away from the fascinating story.
