All My Own Words : The Sportswriter Who Was Author of His Own Downfall Hardback


  • Information


All My Own Words is the remarkable story of a kid with a paper round who dreamed of a career in Fleet Street, the historic fulcrum of the British press.

In just a few short years, he achieved that ambition and held two of the most prestigious posts in sports writing, only to be sacked for plagiarism when collating material for a tennis annual.

Neil Harman didn't have the proper qualifications when he got his first job on a local paper in Southend, but he passed his O-level retakes and set off on a journey packed with incident and controversy.

Harman rose to become the leading football voice on the Daily Mail and later the man they called 'Mr Tennis' on The Times.

All My Own Words charts the extraordinary twists and turns of a special sports-writing voyage, as Harman recounts colourful tales and brings us exclusive insight into characters such as Sir Alex Ferguson, Brian Clough, Graham Taylor, David Beckham, Laurie Cunningham, Sir Andy Murray, Tim Henman, John McEnroe, Pete Sampras, Rafael Nadal, Steffi Graf and Martina Navratilova.
