    Hand-picked favourites
    From relegation battles to World Cups and glorious trophy wins to the 'robot' goal celebration, Peter Crouch is one of the country's favourite - and most recognisable - footballers. The former England international also has a warm sense of self-depreciating humour and that's reflected in this eye-opening and gossipy autobiography.

    Crouchy looks back over a career that has taken in stints at (take a deep breath) Queens Park Rangers, Portsmouth, Aston Villa, Norwich, Southampton, Liverpool, Portsmouth, Tottenham Hotspur and Stoke City and lifts the lid on what really goes on behind the dressing-room doors of English football.

    He fondly remembers the team-mate who arrived at training in a bright red suit with matching top-hat, cane and glasses, without any actual glass in them; the players who refuse to touch a football before a game; and what what Cristiano Ronaldo says to himself when he looks in the mirror.

    He also talks about the rigours of post-match interviews; the perils of making a fool out of yourself on social media; and fall-outs with Rafa Benitez! He also recalls what it was like working for Harry Redknapp and the time Sven-Goran Eriksson's assistant Tord Grip brought out his accordion...

    Peter Crouch

    Product Code: CBHTY
    What happens on the pitch is only half the story. Being a footballer is not just kicking a ball about with twenty-one other people on a big grass rectangle. Sometimes being a footballer is about accidentally becoming best mates with Mickey Rourke, or understanding why spitting is considered football's most heinous crime. In How to be a Footballer, Peter Crouch took us into a world of bad tattoos and even worse haircuts, a world where you're on the pitch one minute, spending too much money on a personalised number plate the next. In I, Robot, he lifts the lid even further on the beautiful game. We will learn about Gareth Bale's magic beans, the Golden Rhombus of Saturday night entertainment, and why Crouchy's dad walks his dog wearing an England tracksuit from 2005. Whether you're an armchair expert, or out in the stands every Saturday, crazy for five-a-side or haven't put on a pair of boots since school, this is the real inside story of how to be a footballer.
