And also agree that it was difficult to determine which bits were Crouchy and which bits were those he had written about.

This deeply personal and supportive series offers listeners an honest and relatable insight into how some the UK's best-known celebrities have coped with mental health difficulties, ranging from OCD to insomnia, addiction to grief, and depression to anxiety. Now Caine delves into the real stories behind the gangs we think we know so well, revealing the hidden realities behind the myths. In Love Is Not Enough, Mark’s first Audible Original, you’ll follow five real people over the course of six months as they navigate f--ked up romantic situations, ranging from dating app addiction to marital affairs to absurd fantasies. In a Jerry Springer-esque final thought, Crouch thus asks of his readers a simple request: to choose a former footballer and give them a day: ‘mark it in your diary and celebrate them as they once were, and as they are now,’ he urges, ‘don’t’ let them be forgotten.

Peter Crouch’s 3rd book is another examination of the lives of football players presented in Crouch’s inimitable style.

He scored over 100 Premier League goals, has 42 England caps and holds the record for the most headed goals in Premier League history. I talks about the struggles and demons facing footballers once they are too old to play professionally. How do you cope with life after one of the best jobs possible and the twin highs of competition and earning almost unfathomable amounts of money? There are former players who have ditched the glitz and glamour of the global sports business for the nitty-gritty of life as a fireman, van driver or even an undertaker, while other pros have replaced one high-flying role for another as hedge fund managers and Hollywood heroes.Savvy players may head into retirement with a healthy nest egg and with the figures that are banded around the pro game today it seems there should be few excuses for former footballers to have financial difficulties, although the book suggests this too isn’t always the case. Personally I prefer The Secret Footballers collection but Crouch being able to put names to stories and his own laidback style is a great touch. And according to the residents of the Japanese island of Okinawa - the world's longest-living people - finding it is the key to a longer and more fulfilled life. Random House presents the audiobook edition of Ikigai by Héctor García and Francesc Miralles, read by Noako Mori.

A surprisingly good read considering that I am not a great football fan but I have to say I enjoyed this book enormously. Some are obvious; coaching, managing, punditry but some are more diverse such as Timo Apsrilla developing his own brand of condoms or Gavin Peacock turning his back on the game to become a church minister in Canada. It is disappointing to find that Peter only narrates the prologue, it would’ve been nice the hear him tell all the stories. Many footballers don't cope well at all, with almost 40% going bankrupt within five years of retirement.There's a reason We Are Legion was named Audible's Best Science Fiction Book of 2016: Its irresistibly irreverent wit! We'll be coached and cajoled by Harry Redknapp, upset Rafa Benitez and be soothed by the sound of an accordion played by Sven-Goran Eriksson's assistant Tord Grip. For Arthur Dent, who has only just had his house demolished that morning, this seems already to be more than he can cope with.
