Open Season (Jason Akermanis with Gary Smart)

Open Season
Jason Akermanis with Gary Smart

Blurb: Say what you like about Jason Akermanis - legend, troublemaker, showman, show-off - there's no denying that he's made an impression in his 16 years as an AFL star player. Now, after more than 325 games, three premierships and a Brownlow Medal, the curtain has come down on his extraordinary career.

No longer restrained by contractual obligations and free to speak at last, Aker reveals a no-holds-barred look at a stellar sporting career, including behind-the-scenes details of his falling out with Leigh Matthews, his move from the Brisbane Lions to the Western Bulldogs and his explosive final season, which was cut short amid very public controversy. Interwoven through the highs and lows of an outstanding professional life is his personal story of finding and reconciling with his biological father - a married man with a family of his own who lived next door to Aker's childhood home.

Told with trademark honesty and passion, this tell-all memoir is a must-have for all footy fans.
