James Peter 'Jimmy' Greaves is one of the greatest footballers to have graced the English game, a goalscorer of legendary prowess. Greavsie: The Autobiography is his gripping and characteristically humorous journey from childhood in the East End to his emergence as one of the great stars of sixties football. This book is both Jimmy's story and the story of football in the golden era of the fifties and sixties before money changed the game. It is populated by the great players whom Jimmy played with and against and animated by wonderful anecdotes about the game. It is an account of how football was then and how it has changed. In The Heart of the Game, Jimmy Greaves looks back over his long association with football and attempts to make sense of our undying passion for the beautiful game.
