About this deal

Some of the stories don't have happy endings and Crouch suggests that better education and awareness for young pros are a must. Despite the money increasingly in football, retiring young comes with very real psychological, emotional, physical and sometimes financial burdens, oftentimes which footballers just aren’t ready for, so while an image of a former tough-tackling midfielder living the life of riley in the Cotswolds may come to mind, in reality the shift into retirement and what that looks like can be much less appealing. It is disappointing to find that Peter only narrates the prologue, it would’ve been nice the hear him tell all the stories. How do you cope with life after one of the best jobs possible and the twin highs of competition and earning almost unfathomable amounts of money? In this controversial and exciting listen, Pollan explores caffeine’s power as the most-used drug in the world - and the only one we give to children (in soda pop) as a treat.

Being with your partner may feel like rainbows and unicorns, but that doesn't mean you have a healthy, functioning relationship.I listened to the penguin audio version of this book and wasn’t as impressed with the presentation of that. The taverna is the only place that Kostas and Defne can meet in secret, hidden beneath the blackened beams from which hang garlands of garlic and chilli peppers, creeping honeysuckle, and in the centre, growing through a cavity in the roof, a fig tree. Then inevitably, when age catches up with them or injury strikes, these man-children are thrown out into the real world, utterly defenceless apart from their multi-million-pound bank accounts. Learn nine essential ways to detox your mindset, feel lighter and more energised, to live a happier and more fulfilling life. He then shines a light on their diverse and interesting secondary career choices, from those that we know and recognise from our own consumption of football coverage, to those with more surprising endeavours which we are less familiar; interviewing many to get their take on their motivations.

He has clearly interviewed a number of former footballing pals and it comes across as an insightful read. In this book he examines some of the ways other ex players have also successfully forged a new life after their careers ended. Shame he didn’t narrate the audiobook, and the narrator didn’t differentiate very clearly between Crouch talking and his interviewees talking which made it hard to follow at times.For David Goggins, childhood was a nightmare--poverty, prejudice, and physical abuse colored his days and haunted his nights. From the pleasure and pain of management to the lessons we can learn from Jamie Carragher and Joe Cole on not going to seed.

Waking up 117 years later, Bob discovers his mind has been uploaded into a sentient space probe with the ability to replicate itself. Whether for financial reasons or a need to fill the void, many former footballers find themselves pursuing new careers when they’ve hung up their boots and Crouch explores the obvious and not-so-obvious post-football pathways. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. There she is given the chance to undo her regrets and try out each of the other lives she might have lived. Just as there are books being written to be turned into screenplays, there are definitely books that are written to be listened to as opposed to read.

Titled The Troubled, Crouch explores the darker side of retirement and reflects on those whose paths in and beyond football have been more problematic. Yes, football is glamorous, yes, it’s swimming in money and, yes, playing football for a living is a dream many of us wished we’d got a chance to live, but it also comes with a short shelf life, a pool of sharks and scammers and one of the most abrupt shifts imaginable, from superstar footballer to has-been ex-footballer.

Access to the Plus Catalogue—thousands of Audible Originals, audiobooks and podcasts, including exclusive series. Is this a difficult third book where the best idea comes in the epilogue: think of a retired footballer and make it their day. Bob Johansson has just sold his software company for a small fortune and is looking forward to a life of leisure. In The Coldest Case: A Black Book Audio Drama, homicide detective Billy Harney sends his new partner, Kate, deep undercover in a notorious Chicago drug ring. It’s a lot for anyone to get their head around, but for mostly young men who have only experienced life in a pampered, dreamlike bubble, it’s easy to see how navigating the real world can be a genuine challenge and why some prefer to leave their footballing pasts well and truly behind.There's a reason We Are Legion was named Audible's Best Science Fiction Book of 2016: Its irresistibly irreverent wit! There are former players who have ditched the glitz and glamour of the global sports business for the nitty-gritty of life as a fireman, van driver or even an undertaker, while other pros have replaced one high-flying role for another as hedge fund managers and Hollywood heroes. And also agree that it was difficult to determine which bits were Crouchy and which bits were those he had written about. Eliminate negativity and change your life with best-selling author, happiness expert and life coach Domonique Bertolucci.
