Description

Paul Ferris, author of the critically acclaimed The Boy on the Shed, continues his story in this powerful tale of resilience, determination and profound bravery.

Former Newcastle United winger Paul Ferris was 51. He had successfully forged a post-football career as a physio, barrister and a CEO, and was just about to publish his award-winning memoir. But then he was diagnosed with prostate cancer.

In this brutally honest yet frequently funny book, Paul tells the story of what happened next. From harrowing surgery, humiliating procedures and excruciating consultations, he candidly opens up about his fight against cancer and, having survived, the life-changing consequences as he strives to become the man he used to be once again.

Courageous, life-affirming and beautifully written, The Magic in the Tin is a memoir that is both deeply moving and rich in humour, written by a true sportsman in every sense of the word.
