217 pages including b/w illustrations. 'It is refreshing to be reminded just what sport is all about. In the relaxed, insightful and entertaining style made famous by Bill Bryson (and, before him, Banjo Paterson), George Huitker recounts a lifetime of sporting experiences and anecdotes - delivering messages so often forgotten in these days of decreasing sports participation and increasing sports contracts. We can easily forget that sport is a part of life, and life a part of sport.' - Robert de Castella 'For George Huitker, footy is certainly not just footy. Coaching his kids allows George to express himself as a writer and a teacher, and as a son who became increasingly aware of his father's influence. George displays the kind of Australian passion and intensity for sport that must go a long way in explaining the incredible success this nation has enjoyed for many decades. His prose and poetry are sensitive, humorous and informative. A delightful account of not just footy.' Dick Telford 'Football is life and, as George Huitker says, not just footy. Huitker - as a fan, a son of a fan, a player and a coach - narrates a classic every - man football story. The highs, the lows, the joys, the frustrations, the rewards and the ingratitude are all there in ways and doses we can recognise all too well.' - Les Murray 'In these days of inflated soccer industry egos and unimagined salaries, the people who matter are left behind. Huitker reminds us, sometimes hilariously, sometimes humiliatingly, but always with humility, of what it's really all about. His writing is part of the social cement which keeps us together. It puts things in context. It made me feel better. Buy it, read it, and you'll feel better too.' - Danny Moulis
