Synopsis: Played 25, won 10, lost 10 and drawn four. Three goals, three benders, one suspension, and one sacking. This is the inside story of what happened when the world's most famous footballer joined the tenth best team in Scotland. In the winter of 1979, Hibs were enduring a season from hell and were freefalling towards relegation. They needed a miracle man to save them—what they got was a lonely, depressed man caught in a downwards alcoholic spiral. In just under a year in Edinburgh, George Best was never off the front and back pages of the national newspapers. A scrupulous, moving, extraordinary account, John Neil Munro weaves together an absorbing and unique portrait of a lost icon, with insights from his widow, his team-mates, his drinking buddies, and many of the fans who saw his great performances; this is the definitive story of what happened when George Best came to Edinburgh.

About the Author: John Neil Munro lives in Laxdale, Isle of Lewis. He studied Modern and Economic history at Glasgow University, then completed a postgraduate journalism course in Cardiff. Other publications include Some People are Crazy: The John Martyn Story and The Sensational Alex Harvey, both published by Polygon.
