Details

Our George reveals for the first time the real story of George Best - as told by those who knew him best and loved him most. It's the inside story of the ordinary Belfast family whose love for, and contact with, their famous son and brother never wavered through the years. From George leaving home at the age of 15, to his first great goals, to the desperate battle to beat the illness that also blighted the life of their beloved wife and mother, the Best family shared the highs and lows more than anyone else. Speaking for the first time, the intensely private Best family reveals how George really felt about the people and the events that shaped his life. Barbara Best is frank in confronting George's own failings and those of some of the people who were close to him, as well as offering a unique perspective on the many pressures to which he was subject. But Our George is also a wonderful celebration of a truly extraordinary life, illustrated through the wealth of previously unseen family photographs, memorabilia and loving correspondence between George and his family. Our George is must-have for every fan of the man.
