Maybe too long but worthwhile anyway. Thorough and serious examination, gets inside the reichsführer's bizarre mind. Good appendixes and pictures

Welcome to My Nightmare: The Alice Cooper Story
by Dave Thompson
Edition: Paperback
Price: 11.87

2.0 out of 5 stars disappointment, 19 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not really worth of reading if you knew Alice before. Suitable maybe for the young. Would have needed more about the music and lyrics or Alice the private person. And much less about the "shock" value.

Firstly did I read this hard cover, which weighed about 2 kilos. Because the book was marvellous I needed this in paperback version. The next time I read this my hands gets considerably less sore.


50 People Who Fouled Up Football
50 People Who Fouled Up Football
by Michael Henderson

2.0 out of 5 stars See the results, 6 Jan 2011
Henderson has very strange opinions. He mixes matters of taste with pure facts. I don't mind, for example, if he hates the David Beckham Phenomenon. Beckham's super star / sex symbol status etc. But Henderson has a bad memory or he is unsuitable as football writer. If you write about football you should take a look at results.

But, in various cases, he tells us, for a fact, that Beckham was over-rated as a player and a England captain. According Henderson, the biggest mistake England manager Sven-Goran Eriksson ever did was to have Beckham as a player and specially a captain in World cup 2006.

Hmm. Let's see: According the FIFA Statistics, Group Stage B went like this:

10.6.2006 England - Paraguay 1-0 (Paraguay's own goal, thanks to Beckham's magnificent free-kick)
15.6.2006 England - Trinidad and Tobago 2-0 (Beckham - FIFA's Man of the Match)
20.6.2006 Sweden - England 2-2 (Beckham played 90 mins, no yellow cards)

Knock-out phase / round of 16 :

25.06.2006 England - Ecuador 1-0 (60' Beckham)

round of 8 :

1.7.2006 Portugal - England 0-0 / a.e.t. 0-0 / 3-1 after penalties

If you look carefully the facts above, does it really look like David Beckham was a failure? Or that Eriksson did a mistake when he decided to have Beckham in his selection?
