The autobiography of football's 'Mr Cool', the former Leeds and Chelsea striker, who now plays for Middlesbrough. In his book, Hasselbaink is forthright about his time at Leeds, and how he felt betrayed by the club and its fans despite the fact that he was their leading scorer for two seasons. Hasselbaink talks candidly about his fellow professionals in the game: the likes of David O'Leary, Claudio Ranieri, Gianfranco Zola, Roman Abramovich and Steve McClaren, plus his troubled times with the Dutch national team. He is also open about his taste for casino gambling and the clubbing scene and his private life, including his parents' divorce and his daughter in Amsterdam.
