In the world of Australian football, no-one has been more notorious than Wayne Carey. Once hailed as The King, and widely acclaimed as one of the greatest footballers of his generation, Carey fell from the highest pinnacle of the game to the lowest of lows.
In his extraordinary memoir, Wayne Carey goes where no Australian sportsman has gone before - telling the whole, uncensored truth about a career whose implosion was as spectacular as Carey's legendary on-field exploits.
From his brutal upbringing in Wagga Wagga to his early teen years where he discovered his love of, and talent for, football, Wayne's candid story of his early life reveals much about the man who has dominated headlines for more than a decade - first for his brilliance on the field, but more often for his troubled personal life.
His life became a train wreck, as he lurched from one disastrous incident to the next - from his serial infidelity to massive alcohol binges and a growing cocaine addiction - each played out on the front page of every newspaper in the country. This is the story of how a man can reach rock bottom, but begin to haul himself up again. The truth sets you free - but it can hurt. This is without doubt the most powerful sporting memoir ever published in Australia.
