Routinely regarded as madmen, lifesavers and villains (often within the course of the same match), goalkeepers have always been looked upon as a breed apart - what other profession could unite the likes of Banks, Jennings and Yashin with Grobbelaar, Higuita, David Icke and the Pope? From Fatty Foulke to Albert Camus, Julio Iglesias to Vladimir Nabakov, there's something about a keeper that's often eccentric, serene, intellectual, vulnerable and very, very lonely.

In this “energetic” (Publishers Weekly) memoir, Victor Woods vividly recounts a trouble-filled and misunderstood coming-of-age in the suburbs of Chicago, the rollercoaster ride that led him to captain a multi-million dollar counterfeit scheme, and his life-changing stint in federal prison. In 1990, Victor Woods was charged by the US federal government with organizing a credit card scam worth more than forty million dollars. He refused to implicate his family and friends for a reduced sentence. His lawyer at the time remarked that he was “a breed apart.” In his authentic, matter-of-fact style, Woods shares the details of his evolution from a rebellious teen to a white-collar criminal and what inspired him to turn his life around while locked away as a federal inmate. Woods’s misdeeds and missteps remind us that sometimes we can be our own worst enemy. His remarkable turnaround shows us that no matter our past we can always make good on a second chance.
