Kammy Summary

Kammy: The Inspirational Autobiography by the Legendary Broadcaster by Chris Kamara

'What a man, what a life, what a story, and what a great read' - Paddy McGuinness

With his trademark banter and unflinching honesty, Kammy sees Chris 'Kammy' Kamara tell the unbelievable stories of his life, revealing how he went from hard-tackling footballer to broadcasting national treasure.

Presenter, commentator, (sometimes masked) singer, footballer, manager and campaigner, Kammy's action-packed career has made him a bona fide British hero. But it hasn't always been plain sailing.

Kammy had a tough upbringing, faced racism on the terraces during his playing career and has, in recent years, dealt with a rare brain condition - apraxia - that has affected his speech and seen him say goodbye to Sky Sports. Despite this, Kammy's star has only risen as he's met every challenge with courage, determination and his infectious smile.

With entertaining stories of his playing career from Pompey to Leeds and beyond; his management at Bradford City and Stoke; his crazy travels around the world; of Soccer Saturday banter; presenting Ninja Warrior; and the incredible friendships he's made along the way, Kammy is an unforgettable ride from one of Britain's best-loved broadcasters.

'A talented (and daft) lad from the Boro who has entertained the nation for decades, on and off the pitch. So get the tissues ready - this book will make you laugh and cry in equal measure' - Steph McGovern

Kammy Reviews

I thought I knew Kammy well. I obviously don't because I didn't think he could read or write -- Bradley Walsh
They broke the mould when they made Kammy. He's one of the great characters in the game -- Sam Allardyce
I have always expected the unexpected with Kammy, but I never expected this! A touching, well-written and of course funny insight into Boro's best! -- Jeff Stelling
Kammy is one of my heroes. What you see is what you get. A talented (and daft) lad from the Boro who has entertained the nation for decades, on and off the pitch. So get the tissues ready - this book will make you laugh and cry in equal measure -- Steph McGovern
I was lucky enough to get to know Kammy recently whilst working with him - a warm, funny, caring person that made me wish I'd known him all his life. This book makes this wish come true - what a great read, from the first chapter to the last! -- Jill Scott
What a man, what a life, what a story, and what a great read -- Paddy McGuinness
I don't know why the f*** I read this, I know most of it. Kammy's cross at Bournemouth when we both played for Leeds made us brothers for life, and thank God he bailed me out when I got arrested in Spain. Great stories - I love this man -- Vinny Jones
