'Touch & technique are the recurring themes in Bergkamp's brilliant autobiography... Every coach, manager, player or academy recruit should spend £20 on it and learn from one of the game's greats. The answers to the ills in the English game are all there' --Daily Mail
'Bergkamp allows his story to be told in the words of David Winner, the author of a much-admired analysis of Dutch football. Winner interviews Bergkamp - who retired in 2006 and is now a senior coach with Ajax at length, but intersperses his narrative with his own observations and with material from conversations with friends and colleagues such as Wenger, Vieira and Thierry Henry' --The Guardian
'The Dutchman's long-awaited book is unique, jumping between a traditional biographical approach, to interviews with former team-mates and coaches, to A&As between him and author David Winner. A theoretical tome, it's one for the cerebral fan, not a scandal junkie' --FourFourTwo Magazine
