Foreword by Ben Shephardâ€˜Everyone loves Kammy . . . Full of humour and endless blundersâ€™ â€“ The Times’What a man, what a life, what a story, and what a great read’ â€“ Paddy McGuinnessPresenter, commentator, (sometimes masked) singer, footballer, manager and campaigner, Kammy has done it all. His irrepressible enthusiasm â€“ and a couple of legendary gaffes on Sky Sports â€“ have seen him become broadcasting royalty.
Now Kammy reveals all in this funny and moving autobiography. What happens when you double cross JosÃ© Mourinho? What itâ€™s like to play with Vinnie Jones? Who comes off better: Kammy or a rampaging gorilla? How did Kammy end up releasing his own top-ten record? What’s the real story behind his infamous line, ‘I don’t know, Jeff!’?But despite the crazy tales, it hasn’t all been plain sailing. Kammy had a tough upbringing, faced racism during his playing career and has, in recent years, dealt with a rare brain condition â€“ apraxia â€“ that has affected his speech and seen him say goodbye to Sky Sports. Relating his battle against the condition, Kammy shows how heâ€™s met every challenge with courage, determination and his infectious smile.
Packed with hilarious stories and featuring a cast of famous names, from Elton John to Channing Tatum, this is a book about friendship, courage and why it’s always important to have a good laugh.
‘A talented (and daft) lad from the Boro who has entertained the nation for decades, on and off the pitch. So get the tissues ready â€“ this book will make you laugh and cry in equal measure’ â€“ Steph McGovern
