Publishers Description: After 34 years in the game at a thousand kilometres an hour, Mark 'Bomber' Thompson stepped away from AFL footy following the Essendon drugs scandal. In this candid and uncompromising autobiography, he sets the record straight on his often controversial career. We ride the bumps of the playing field, the coaches' box the boardroom and the press conferences as Thompson handles things his own way. He talks about his mentors, his proteges and his contemporaries with insight and candour, and reveals what he considers to be the trademarks of a successful coach. This is as good a book about football as you'll get, by a purist who understands and loves the game, and who refuses to put up with politics. Mark Thompson's legacy is some of the greatest footy to be played in the modern era.
