Publisher's Summary

So, you think you know Joey Barton. Think again.
No Nonsense is a game-changing autobiography which will redefine the most fascinating figure in British football. It is the raw yet redemptive story of a man shaped by rejection and the consequences of his mistakes. He has represented England and been a pivotal player for Manchester City, Newcastle United, Queens Park Rangers, Marseille, Burnley and Glasgow Rangers, but his career has featured recurring controversy. The low point of being sent to prison for assault in 2008 proved to be the catalyst for the reevaluation of his life.
No Nonsense reflects Barton's character - it is candid, challenging, entertaining and intelligent. He does not spare himself in revealing the formative influences of a tough upbringing in Liverpool and gives a survivor's insight into a game which, to use his phrase, 'eats people alive'. The audiobook is emotionally driven and explains how he has redirected his energies since the birth of his children. In addition to dealing with his past, he expands on his plans for the future. In this updated edition he speaks frankly about the gambling addiction that has left him facing a hefty ban. The millions who follow his commentaries on social media and those who witnessed him on BBC's Question Time will be given another reason to pause, and look beyond the caricature.

Excellent

I enjoyed this book much more than I thought I would. I was never a fan of Joey at all, as I allowed myself to be influenced by all forms of media. After reading some comments on his Twitter account and seeing how much abuse he receives. It led me to question myself 'Why would you remain on social media'? and 'What type of person is he'? So to gain a little insight I read this book. It is a detailed, frank and honest account. Joey is a deep intelligent person who now with wisdom looks within himself. People/humans make mistakes. It really does show how some of us can be very unforgiving. I myself have learnt something, and stand corrected.

The best football autobiography

Couldn't stop listening to this. Stunningly honest, brutal, inspiring and insightful. A story of a fighter who chose his path, but constantly fought against being pushed down the wrong one.

Opinion changer

Certainly change my opinion, positively, to Joey Barton. I’ve already started to think differently about myself and others.
