Just reading Robbie Pauls autobiography (not saying he is a legend or great, but was wondering if Shaun Edwards has ever released a biography? Who else out of the masterclass fraternity have not yet released one?

if Geoff Fletcher would release one on his many years at Huyton/Runcorn i reckon it would be a cracking read, i've heard a few stories when ex players have gathered( sadly generally at funerals)that were hilarious

Offiah has released two.

I thought so but wasn't sure. Stanley Gene's is still one of the better books I've read.

There are some great ones to be fair but some real "pot boilers".  Some of the better ones relate to players who perhaps wouldn't be regarded as legends or superstars - often their stories are very interesting.
