I read loads of football biographies and this must be one of the worst I was looking forward to reading about the rise of Jamie Vardy and don t know any than I did before I could have found all this out from the newspapers nothing new Disappointed, Very disappointing read up to the point which I gave up Learnt nothing I didn t already know about our star striker.As others have reviewed, very repetitive and poorly edited.I will have to look elsewhere if I want to find out about the real Jamie Vardy
