George Best Books
What a life George Best had lived - the booze, the women, the gambling, and of course, the football. He will always be remembered as a sporting legend and one of Manchester United's greatest footballers. He was a key player in United's European Cup winning side in 1968, scoring a vital goal in the 4-1 win over Benfica and being awarded the European Player of the Year award the same season. He still holds the record for scoring six goals in one game in the FA Cup away at Northampton - to put it simply, the Belfast Boy was simply the Best. George died on November 25th 2005.
George Best - Hard Tackles and Dirty Baths

Hard Tackles & Dirty Baths - The Inside Story of Football's Golden Era
By George Best Publishers Ebury 2005
Released just days before George Best was admitted to hospital, this was to be his final book. Harking back to a golden era of football, from the 60s to the early 70s, before money and marketing took over football, George tells of his own experiences and those of his friends. The book follows the drama and intrigue of each successive season (1963 to 1973) in league, cup and abroad, these were the years of United's rebuilding after Munich, George and Sir Matt's eventual triumph. Superb reading from a superb footballer!!!
Always Alex - My Story

Always Alex - My Story
By Alex Best Publishers Blake 2005
The autobiography of George Best's second wife tells the story of the latter stages of his life. It's a one-sided account of their troubled marriage which ended when his alcoholism and infidelity became too much for her. Like the earlier book from his first wife, Angie Best, George felt that this book was nothing more than just a way of making money out of his name (a name which both ex-wife's had also kept). Nonetheless, there is still a story to tell even if it does provide an insight into the side of George Best's life fans would rather forget.

George Best - Scoring At Half-Time
By George Best Publishers Ebury Press 2004
The paperback version of his 2003 autobiography. Michael Parkinson: 'What was the nearest to kick-off that you made love to a woman?' George Best: 'Er- I think it was half-time actually.' George Best was the first celebrity footballer and to many the greatest British player ever. In Scoring at Half-Time he gathers together his favourite memories, stories and anecdotes from his experiences in and out of the game over the last forty years.

Blessed - The Autobiography
By George Best Publishers Ebury Press 2001
George Best candidly reflects on the story of his rise and fall. He revels in a brilliant career with United, being a media darling, with a Miss World or two on his arm. But he also calmly recounts the lows: a litany of professional and domestic woe, including his fight with alcohol, that public humiliation on Wogan and being arrested once or twice. Superb!
