Be Careful What You Wish For
About this deal
Be Careful What You Wish For (2012) is his account of how he made his fortune and chased a dream and it is an interesting tale regardless of how you feel about the man himself (nowadays still ruffling feathers as the voice of TalkSPORT).

During his ten years in football covering the entire decade of the noughties he became one of the game's most recognisable faces.
A maze of ownership finally showed the legal ownership being 60% Paul Kemsley and 40% a venture capital company owned by HBOS. Rumours persist of personal financial difficulties as Jordan faced "cashflow" problems relating to wage payments at the club in November and December 2009. Jordan finds himself overcome by increasingly violent sexual fantasies about many of the women in his life, Grace included. As such, he seeks rational explanations for phenomena that many people in his time still explain in terms of religion and occult superstition. Simon Jordan's warts and all story of his experience of owning and running a major football club is a witty and intensely personal account that brutally exposes the often insane bubble that professional football exists in.It held my interest from the very start as he gives the scoop on the people he's worked with and reveals alot about the inner workings of Football as a business.
I enjoy listening to Simon’s forthright and no nonsense approach on the radio and this book is an extension of that .
