No Nonsense is a game-changing autobiography which will redefine the most fascinating figure in British football. It is the raw yet redemptive story of a man shaped by rejection and the consequences of his mistakes. He has represented England and been a pivotal player for Manchester City, Newcastle United, Queens Park Rangers, Marseille, Burnley and Glasgow Rangers, but his career has featured recurring controversy. The low point of being sent to prison for assault in 2008 proved to be the catalyst for the reevaluation of his life.
No Nonsense reflects Barton's character - it is candid, challenging, entertaining and intelligent. He does not spare himself in revealing the formative influences of a tough upbringing in Liverpool and gives a survivor's insight into a game which, to use his phrase, 'eats people alive'. The audiobook is emotionally driven and explains how he has redirected his energies since the birth of his children. In addition to dealing with his past, he expands on his plans for the future. In this updated edition he speaks frankly about the gambling addiction that has left him facing a hefty ban. The millions who follow his commentaries on social media and those who witnessed him on BBC's Question Time will be given another reason to pause, and look beyond the caricature.

The story of a narcissist
A deluded man who blames himself for bad decisions BUT always has reasons why others led or forced him into those decisions .. Barton wasn’t the player he thinks he is ... not even close! His best moments have always come at a level below the premiership, as a Newcastle United fan I appreciated his efforts to win us promotion and stabilise us back in the top division ... however, his real legacy was the years leading up The relegation.. a poor signing on far too much money made by a shocking manager.... everything Sir Bobby Robson wasn’t was epitomised by Allerdyce and Barton along with the clutch of poor signings he made

Needless to say I had the last laugh
I must point out that I am not a fan of Joey Barton but thought it might be an interesting listening but the longer I listen the more I kept on thinking this was like listening to Alan Partridges fictional autobiography 'Bouncing Back'.
Telling story of how he beat team mates/general public with no real remorse, just blaming his upbringing and social groups but all with the backdrop of 'needless to say...I had the last laugh'. I wouldn't recommend.
