Quite possibly the greatest British footballer of all-time, George Best’s career and personal life were absolutely packed with incredible highs and devastating lows. Best’s early years were spent winning the European Cup, being crowned European footballer of the year and finishing as Manchester United’s top goalscorer for five years running, and this great success on the pitch was mirrored by his lifestyle off it, achieving celebrity status, appearing on Top of the Pops and dating Miss World. However, the extravagant lifestyle that was almost as famous as his skill with a football would ultimately lead to his downfall, with his later years plagued by alcoholism, divorce and money troubles. All the key moments of a legendary footballing life are presented through newspaper clippings here in this fantastic bespoke piece of George Best memorabilia.

Personalise your George Best book with a special message on the title page. Choose between cover options and emboss a name in gold to make this the perfect present for any fan of the “beautiful boy” and the “beautiful game”.

How to Personalise Your George Best Book

This edition is available in a green leatherette cover with the option to emboss with the recipient’s name, or in black luxury leather, which is already embossed in gold. Also add a unique message to feature on the book’s inside title page.

Check your personalisation: accents and other symbols cannot be used unless otherwise stated.

The story of George Best from beginning to end enough said.

Bartmag79 Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 29 Aug 2018

I bought this book for my dads 60th birthday and it was great. I was half expecting little A5 book with a few articles in it but when it arrived it was a huge book full of interesting articles about not only George Best but other stories that happened on the same day. It was made even better when I found out my dad was actually in the book!

I bought this book for my father-in-law's 80th birthday and I'm so pleased with it. I've not yet given him it but I know he will absolutely love it. The prints are so clear considering they're duplicated and the cover is so lovely. I can't wait for his birthday so we can give it to him.

Special gift.

Love this book and the way that facts ate woven into a story with a personal touch. The presentation box makes the book look like an extra special gift. For a child Interested in the stars and planets, this book is great. A bit pricey compared to non personalised books, but worth it to have it contsin a picture and my grandson's name within the text/book. The look on his face was priceless and the added interest due to the personalisation made it a sensational gift.

Heckiew Trustpilot product review 3 star rating 23 Sep 2020

Not quite what I expected!

Content of book has lots of good interesting content although print is quite small but I was very disappointed that the book is about Glasgow Rangers and is bound in maroon (Heart of Mid Lothian colour) Also the book was personalised. This consisted of a printed sticker which wasn’t even stuck down properly. I expected a bit more for the price I paid.

    Thank you for your review.

    We are sorry to hear this.

    As you have ordered the A4 size book, this is presented in a brown leatherette cover as standard. We do provide all information on the covers within the production page. We do apologise if this was missed.

    As the newspaper that we use is the Daily Mirror, this is an A3 tabloid size. For this paper to fit within an A4 book, the content does have to be shrunk down which does unfortunately make the text smaller than originally printed.

    We do apologise for any inconvenienced caused.

    If you need to contact the customer service team, please do on 0330 058 0403 or [email protected]

    Kind Regards,
    The In The Book Team

A beautiful book that made a great present ..

A beautiful book that made a great present for my newborn baby Nephew. A great keepsake. My nephews name was throughout the book and we were also able to put a personal message in the front of the book. Very pleased with my purchase.

Colin Shytot Yarde Trustpilot product review 4 star rating 22 Sep 2020

Should be an Interesting Read

The item was exactly what I thought it would be, the downside was that that newspaper has a strong unpleasant odour, I appreciate that it’s 60 years old but it still smells!
