This is Bobby Brown's remarkable life in and out of football, highlighting his debut as Scottish manager in the famous Wembley win over world champions England in 1967. The book charts his progress from schoolboy playing for Queen's Park to Scottish international goalkeeper in wartime and after. Bobby's Fleet Air Arm service is recounted, as is his honours-laden Rangers career, including the first 'Treble' in 1949, as part of their fabled 'Iron Curtain' defence.

As a PE teacher he was a part-timer in a full-time team and reveals the pressures that created. His first managerial job at St Johnstone preceded being national manager whose 'highs and lows' are recalled, along with insights into many of the Scottish game's leading figures. In 1971 Bobby left football to be a successful restaurateur and businessman.

His non-football interests are covered including the outdoors, the church and family life - along with his delight at his induction to the Scottish Football Hall of Fame.
