2.0 out of 5 stars Dull description of an exciting player, 4 Mar 2005
I'm a big fan of Andy Roddick but was disappointed by this book. Alot of the book is filled with paragraph after paragraph of brief match summaries which could have been read from a newspaper with no special insights added. Any comments from Andy R seem to be taken from general press conferences/interviews and there is no inside information about Andy. Some events are repeated for no reason like his change of coach which is described several times. Some odd/inaccurate phrases are used like "volleying from the baseline", I won't try that! A late chapter consisting of some experts giving their opinion is quite interesting but not enough to save the book. It needed some more inside information from either Andy or someone close to him or involved in the game, this is an outsiders basic account of one season, I learnt very little.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, 22 Feb 2005
The 1970 World Cup is one of my first football memories and this was an excellent chance to re-live probably the best ever competition. The author describes the build up and the tournament in a wonderfully enjoyable way and it was a real pleasure to read.
