Barry John has often been referred to as the George Best of rugby. Considered by many to be the greatest player of his generation. Barry John courted the pop-star image- tall, dark and handsome, and he had the world at his feet, just like Best. An idol to millions of sports lovers throughout the world, he was mobbed and feted wherever he went. Known as 'The King', Barry John caused one of the sporting shocks of the century when he dramatically quit the game he loved at the height of his dazzling career - aged just 27 - prompting further enduring comparisons with Best which still exist today. He has never fully explained the reasons for his abrupt departure. But in Barry John- The George Best of Rugby he talks in great detail for the first time about why he had to step out of the limelight- he reveals that the day an 18 year old girl curtsied to him he felt he had simply become too far detached from ordinary people.
