5.0 out of 5 stars If only I had $70,000 and a spare six months...!, 5 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've had a love of the NFL for the last 10 years or so and am always on the look out for books on the game. When I saw this I had to order it and wasn't disappointed. I started and finished it in a weekend and am massively envious of the trip that Adam has undertaken! Whilst also about the challenge of visiting all 32 NFL stadiums in a 17 week season, the real stories come from the tailgates themselves and the characters and fans that Adam met along the way. The generous nature of the NFL fans really shone through and I challenge anyone who reads the book to not want to instantly book a flight to the States for September to start their very own tailgating journey. Thoroughly recommended, and a very enjoyable read. I would also add that you don't need to be an NFL junky to enjoy the book, and would recommend it to anyone who has a passing interest in the game as a great way to get a deeper understanding of the true culture behind the NFL fans, and American Football in general.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best yet?, 30 Oct 2002
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: One By One (Audio CD)
The Foo Fighters fourth album, one by one, is undisputedly their best yet. It mixes the aggresion shown on The Colour and the Shape witht the more melodic melodies that appear on their first album and Nothing Left to Lose. The result is outstanding and is their most convincing release yet. The albums opener and closer are both wonderful songs which have something that was lacking from the previos three albums. they make the album feel complete and when Grohl sings "i'll come back" as the last song, you know he means it.
Despite several harsh reviews in the mainstream press it appears that Grohl's stint with the Queens of the Stone Age in the summer has done him good and with this album one gets the impression that he wants to put all the events of recent years behind him, using the songs as a way to close certain issues that have happened.
No longer will people wondering if the Foo Fighters are going to split up as this album propels them into the mainstream as they are confirmed as one of the biggest bands in the world currently.
