Author Bob Harris was Bobby Robson's friend, confidante and ghostwriter throughout his managerial career, travelling the world with him and provided with an insider's view to his incredible life and times.

One of the best known reporters of his generation, Harris accumulated hundreds of hours of recordings with Robson in the process of ghostwriting six books published under Robson's name as well as reporting on hundreds of games for club and country.

Now, a decade after Robson's death, Harris has sat down to write about their friendship, utilising this incredible body of material and his own memories of the great man.

Part memoir, part biography, this is an extraordinary and fondly recalled portrait of one of football's most loved and iconic individuals.
