While playing soccer for Reading in 2000, Andy McLaren failed a random drug test and was immediately banned from the sport. After working hard to overcome his addictions to alcohol and cocaine, he resurrected his career with Kilmarnock later that same year and gained his first national cap when Scotland played Poland in 2001. But what caused him to drink and use drugs in the first place? In this intimate memoir, McLaren reveals how he discovered through psychoanalysis that he had been a victim of child abuse, and how this had led him down the destructive path of drug and alcohol abuse. From his contemplations of suicide to the shocking revelations from his past, this is a powerful, honest tale of a man whose career never hit the heights of his true potential and athletic talent. One of the most revealing books written by any athlete, McLaren’s remarkable life story, laced with hope and humor, will be an inspiration to men and women in every walk of life.
