'Touch & technique are the recurring themes in Bergkamp's brilliant autobiography... Every coach, manager, player or academy recruit should spend £20 on it and learn from one of the game's greats. The answers to the ills in the English game are all there' Daily Mail

'Dennis 'The Iceman' Bergkamp. 400 appearances, three league titles and two doubles, and a key member of the 'Invincibles'. What more really needs to be said to make you want to pick up a copy? Stillness and Speed offers an enthralling insight to Dennis' footballing journey from his time served under the Dutch Master Johan Cryuff to the Premier league, and the path that led him to become an Arsenal and International legend. As an Arsenal fan and having witnessed many of the footballing feats Dennis was capable of, this book personally brought back fantastic memories and I couldn't put it down. It is well written and captivating throughout; there isn't much more you could ask for in a player's autobiography. A thoroughly enjoyable read and viewpoint from Dennis' perspective about his path that ultimately led to Arsène Wenger's doorstep. I'd encourage anyone to give it a read, and then challenge you to put it down again before the final page is turned' Twentyfour7Football

'Bergkamp allows his story to be told in the words of David Winner, the author of a much-admired analysis of Dutch football. Winner interviews Bergkamp - who retired in 2006 and is now a senior coach with Ajax at length, but intersperses his narrative with his own observations and with material from conversations with friends and colleagues such as Wenger, Vieira and Thierry Henry' The Guardian

'The Dutchman's long-awaited book is unique, jumping between a traditional biographical approach, to interviews with former team-mates and coaches, to A&As between him and author David Winner. A theoretical tome, it's one for the cerebral fan, not a scandal junkie' FourFourTwo Magazine

'A characteristically intelligent, soulful memoir' The Times

'An unusually fun, honest and readable biography' Giles Richards, Observer

'David Winner, a peerless chronicler of Dutch football, helps Bergkamp construct an eccentric but ultimately beguiling story in Stillness And Speed' --Sunday Herald
Product Description
In Stillness and Speed, one of football's most enigmatic stars finally opens up about his life and career, revealing the things that motivate and inspire him. Viewed by many as one of the most influential figures in Premier League history, and scorer of the goal that Arsenal fans voted the best in the club's history, Dennis Bergkamp is a true giant of the game.
As a youngster, Bergkamp learned from the Dutch master Johan Cruyff. By the time the pupil was ready to graduate from Ajax and move abroad, he was ready to spread the word, but in Italy he found few willing listeners. It was only when he moved to Arsenal and linked up with Arsene Wenger that he met someone else who shared his vision for football's possibilities. Bergkamp became central to everything the club did: now he had become the teacher, their creative genius, and the one who inspired some of the wayward old guard to new heights, helping them to seven major trophies.
Few footballers' books make you think anew, but in Stillness and Speed Bergkamp presents a new vision for the game and how it might be played. He was a player like no other; his story is told like no other. It is a book that will inspire football fans everywhere, whatever their allegiance.
Pretty boring book to be honest
