The King: The Autobiography, by Denis Law (2003)

In the 1960s, Denis Law was the King of Old Trafford.

When it came to scoring goals, Law was the master, a mercurial genius. Loved by the fans because he always gave his all on the pitch, this fierce Scotsman fought for everything and was afraid of nothing.

Having played for Huddersfield and Torino, Law joined Manchester United for a new British record transfer fee of £115,000 in August 1962. He scored two goals in his debut game and many more were to follow -160 of them in only 222 games over his first five seasons. This book tells the extraordinary story of an Aberdeen boy made good – from humble beginnings, Denis Law reached the very pinnacle of soccer fame. Containing entertaining anecdotes about the likes of George Best, Matt Busby and Jimmy Greaves, Denis also lets us know in no uncertain terms his views on the modern game.
