Format: Hardcover
Still Dreaming is an entertaining read but like its subject, this summer's World Cup finals, it is fairly undistinguished. With a successful England career behind him BBC football pundit Gary Lineker seemed to have been the ideal person to add a little insight into the events in South Africa. I had expected him to reward the reader with nuggets of inside information (and gossip) that we would not have normally heard but unfortunately there is nothing reported on in this book which wasn't already public knowledge. This means that rather than telling us something new Lineker simply recounts the events of each day, rather like a diary. Granted he does give us his opinions - mainly about what was going wrong with England - but these aren't particularly incisive; they are largely the opinions which nearly every England watcher will have already formed, the possible exception being Fabio Capello.

Had the World Cup finals in South Africa had a more favourable outcome I am sure that this book would have flown off the shelves. As it is though I cannot help but think that Gary Lineker is onto a loser with this; I cannot imagine many England supporters choosing to read a book which recounts events that most of them will have been trying their hardest to forget.

Pretty Terrible Book 27 Sept. 2011
By T. Luo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book felt like a review of the 2010 World Cup written based on the Wiki entries and a collection of newspaper headlines. I thought since Gary is an ex striker and is involved with the modern game on a weekly basis he may offer us some insights on his travels to South Africa or from the English camp but its just a collection of score lines of each game that happened during the world cup and a paragraph or two of his opinions on the match. Not worth the money, maybe in 10-15 years I will read it again to relive the tournament.

Spend the equivalent money on a 2010 World Cup review dvd or magazine, they will offer you a lot more than this book.
