Newcastle United, Aal Aboot Geordie, Aal Aboot Newcastle. Just like buses, you wait for a decent book on Newcastle United/The North East, then three come along at once. All three are published by My World and come in a pocket sized format as well as a pocket sized price. Each book gives a concise insight into; Newcastle United, our fabulously unique Geordie dialect, then finally, the great City of Newcastle. It is easy to write a book by just rehashing what s been done before but these three, small but perfectly formed, mini classics manage to unearth information on all three subjects that I d never heard before. They also manage to pack an awful lot into such small packages, a bit like Peter Beardsley at his very best. --The Mag (themag.co.uk) Nov 4 2012
