Rio Ferdinand is widely acknowledged as one of the most talented defenders in the world. His transfer from West Ham to Leeds set a British record, a feat he repeated with his subsequent move to Manchester United. Ferdinand's success on the pitch has been meteoric -- including high drama in the Champions League, a World Cup (where, in 2002, he was the outstanding English player) and a dramatic Premiership victory. He is set to be a key member of the England team that will challenge for the World Cup in 2006. If success on the pitch has kept Ferdinand on the back pages, his off-pitch story has made him a regular on the front pages. Here for the very first time, Ferdinand reveals all about his infamous missed drugs test, the controversies surrounding both his transfers, his supposed reluctance to re-sign for United in 2005, the alleged tapping-up meeting with Chelsea's Peter Kenyon and various tabliod headlines involving partying and women. Beyond the football, Ferdinand's personal story will also fascinate. Here he discusses his upbringing in Peckham, his work with young offenders and his music label which provides unique opportunities for underprivileged youths.

About the Author:

Born in Peckham, Ferdinand signed for West Ham as a schoolboy, turning professional at the age of 17. He debuted in May 1996 and played 158 games for the Hammers before transferring to Leeds United in November 2000, with whom he reached the Champions League semi-final in 2001. Following his star performance in the 2002 World Cup, he joined Manchester United. He made his England debut in March 1998 and has won 43 caps, scoring one vital goal in the 2002 World Cup.

Review:

'...there is a fascination in the way he reveals the details of the modern celebrity footballer's lifestyle' * John Dillon Daily Express * '...explosive... a fascinating life both on and off the pitch' * Sun * '...a sex, drugs and rock and roll account of his career' * Shoot * '...a very good read. The portrait he paints of life on the cusp of stardom is brilliant' * Paul Kimmage, Sunday Times *
