DetailsTitle: Celtic Minded: 510 Days In Paradise
Author: Jock Brown
Published: 27 May 1999
More than a diary, this is a sports book which analyses key elements in the world of football and its culture, the media and the need for change.
Jock Brown reveals the problems he faced, how he coped with them and the incredible behind-the-scenes politics that he found while working at Celtic Park.
ReviewWim Jansen - a surly and uncommunicative dictator; Murdo MacLeod - a self-seeking wrecker of other colleagues' careers; Davie Hay - selective in his memory of events. Just some of Jock's overall views of his time at Celtic.
Having put up with Press assaults regularly, Jock Brown finally got his say when he published the book in May 1999. Up to that point Brown had been fairly quiet since resigning from Celtic and had really only given one interview.
Several large chunks of the book were published in Scotland on Sunday, who bought the serialisation rights to the book, in April 1999.
This book sets out to put his case and his views. Whatever you thought of Brown the man and Brown the Celtic employee this book needs to be read with an open mind. Yes it is a one-sided view but it is one side that very rarely gets presented all the bad press seemingly appearing against Jock Brown.
The book is quite an eye-opener. What does come through is the overwhelming arrogance of the man in his own defense but it also becomes clear that he was put into some very tricky positions which would have required Houdini-like ability to have escaped from without some kind of damage occurring.
