Otherwise, it’s a really interesting look into a number of other peoples post-football careers and pretty touching at times too. His dribbling and overall flair was praised by Pelé, who stated that, "He has the skills of a Brazilian," during Cole's spell at Chelsea.

In this book he examines some of the ways other ex players have also successfully forged a new life after their careers ended.He left Chelsea on a free transfer in July 2010 to join Liverpool, who a year later loaned him to Lille. He started in the League Cup Final at the Millennium Stadium on 27 February, making way for Johnson after 81 minutes of an eventual 3–2 win after extra time against Liverpool. At the end of the 2013–14 season, and the end of Cole's 18-month contract, his departure from West Ham was confirmed.

It’s difficult to have sympathy for someone who was paid tens of thousands of pounds a week and lived a life filled with mansions and flash cars for not having the insight to prepare for the future. On 5 June 2012, however, he confirmed that Cole would not remain at Lille after stating that new Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers wanted the player to rejoin the Liverpool squad. In August 2008, Cole scored a late equalising goal in a 2–2 draw at Wembley against the Czech Republic after coming on as a substitute. The game finished 2–2 with Cole providing the assists for both of West Ham's goals which were scored by James Collins. It is disappointing to find that Peter only narrates the prologue, it would’ve been nice the hear him tell all the stories.It’s still good, but gets confusing when he’s reciting a conversation (in the first person) with another ex-pro, whilst referring to himself as Peter Crouch. Cole's displays in England's friendlies leading up to the 2006 World Cup enhanced his reputation ahead of the summer's finals in Germany. His league debut, against Arsenal at Anfield on 15 August 2010, lasted just 45 minutes as he was sent off for a challenge on Laurent Koscielny.

As a youngster, Cole played for the England's under-17 team, where he scored the winning goal against Norway in a final of the Nordic Tournament.A quick, strong and creative player, Cole was known in particular for his dribbling skills, and was capable of both scoring and creating goals due to his vision, passing and striking ability. However How to be an Ex Footballer as well as having its expected fill of funny anecdotes also has a darker side.
