Fabrice Muamba: I'm Still Standing is one of the books of the year. A life-affirming tale of courage and triumph that will surprise, fascinate and ultimately inspire you.

THEY say that when you die, your life flashes before your eyes.
Fabrice Muamba has been there. He knows.
Muamba was the Bolton Wanderers player who collapsed during a televised FA Cup match against Tottenham Hotspur.
After receiving emergency treatment on the pitch from medical personnel – including a consultant cardiologist who was at the game as a fan – he was rushed to a coronary care unit at the London Chest Hospital.
Muamba’s heart stopped beating for 78 minutes. But amazingly he survived.
He made a remarkable recovery that has engrossed and enthralled both the footballing and wider world.
Although it is Muamba's cardiac arrest and his wonderful resurgence that has brought him into the public eye, the truth is that he had already lived a remarkable life prior to his collapse.
Born in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo, Muamba was brought up surrounded by the terror of a civil war and without a father who was forced to flee to the UK in 1994 because of his links to unpopular President Mobutu Sese Seko.
Muamba was not reunited with his father until 1999 when he moved to London aged 11.
This schoolboy, who could not speak a word of English, then displayed the kind of strength and faith that would become his hallmark, achieving 10 GCSEs before swiftly rising to the top of the English game, firstly with Arsenal and Birmingham City before his final spell at Bolton.

Been after this book for ages and couldn't resist at this price.

What a horrible moment when he collapsed. Lots of respect for him and the people who acted in a quick manner to save his life. In particular the Dr spectating who jumped on the pitch to help.

A book from the heart, no lies and made up drama or nonsense intended. A excellent read it really is, just look at the praising reviews.

I remember setting my FB pic to Pray for Muamba. So glad he made a full recovery.

The guy just had a heart attack. He is rather lucky to be alive but not sure why he ended up warning this "respect".

No he didn't have a heart attack, he had a cardiac arrest. They are not the same thing.

This guy went to my school. He was barely average. its crazy where he is now, just shows if you get the right attention at the right time you can make it in Footy. Come to think of it, a lot of great guys I know who played football very well but just didn't get noticed so they moved on.

He was a barely average footballer, yet he went on to play in The Premiership?

Either he must have had a remarkable improvement in his game, or I wouldn't advise you to take up a job in football scouting. footballers mate,
