Breakfast with Bails

Post by Gingernuts on Tue Nov 17, 2015 11:36 am

Thought this one deserved it's own thread.

Paddy Steinfort, ex-Adelaide staffer is about to publish a book entitled 'Breakfast with Bails'.

In the final months and weeks of Dean Bailey's life Paddy visited him regularly for breakfast and to document his thoughts on footy, coaching, and philosophies on life.

I've been following Steinfort's blog for a few months now and the snippets he has released have been riveting.

Last week he released the first chapter for free and fair to say I am hooked. If you want to download it and have a read you'll find it here.

When is the book out, mate?

If that chapter doesn't get you wanting more, nothing will. Thanks for sharing,I look forward to reading the book.

Looks to be a cracking read doesn't it?

I'm pretty sure it's set to be out before Christmas, but I'm not 100% on that. I hope it is as it would make a good present for several of my relatives.

Available to pre-order (good price, but shipping adds a fair bit of a sting too it!).

I received my copy in the mail last week and promptly consumed it within a couple of days.

I don't know if anyone else here has read it yet, but it is quite possibly one of the most incredible 'footy' related books I have read.

It is equal parts raw, confronting, emotional and profound. It provides incredible insight and access to an incredible man in an incredible situation, and is a story that will stay with me for quite sometime. If you read one book this year it must be this one.
