John Barnes spent the first dozen years of his life in Jamaica before moving to the UK with his family in 1975. Six years later he was a professional footballer, distinguishing himself for Watford, Liverpool and England, and in the process becoming this country's most prominent Black player.

Barnes is now an articulate and captivating social commentator and in The Uncomfortable Truth About Racism he tackles head-on the many complex issues surrounding prejudice with his trademark intelligence and authority.

By vividly evoking his own experiences, and holding a mirror to this country's past, present and future, Barnes provides a powerful and moving testimony.

The Uncomfortable Truth About Racism is a personal and thought-provoking book that will help to inform and advance the conversation around society's ongoing battle with the awful strain of discrimination.
