After reading and enjoying the second book in this series, I, Robot: How to Be a Footballer 2, I decided that it was time to read its forerunner.

Read by Peter Crouch, the audiobook is incredibly easy to listen to with numerous laugh out loud moments. If you are looking for a serious autobiography, then this is not the book for you as, although we do get a great insight into the life of Peter Crouch, this is more of a collection of stories and observations than a straightforward life story.

I like how Peter Crouch does not take himself too seriously and is prepared to tell embarrassing stories that others may have wanted to keep hidden. It was also refreshing to see how someone who is comfortable financially is still appalled by the money others spend on things. The tales of a ridiculously expensive jumper and a rather overpriced haircut were particularly amusing!

If you are looking for an easy to read book that will make you laugh – even if football is not one of your interests – then I completely recommend How to be a Footballer. The audiobook, in particular, made this several hours well spent!
