1.0 out of 5 stars Worst Book Ever Written, 7 July 2006
This review is from: The Italian Job (Hardcover)
I must admit I dashed out to buy this book as soon as it came out. I shouldn't have bothered.
The book claims to be a journey to the heart of two footballing nations. Sadly the research appears to have been limited to interviews with those who support the authors' opinions.
There are too many sweeping generalisations and more than a few insulting comments.
The only saving grace is that Vialli is donating the proceeds to charity, however if you're feeling charitable, better donate the money direct and save a few trees into the bargain by not buying this book.
