1.0 out of 5 stars Uninspiring & repetitive, 27 Mar 2008
Sadly this book isn't what at all what I expected, and overall it's very disappointing. It seems to be more of an advert for a certain mental conditioning company, which is mentioned on just about every other page and at one stage is called by different names. There are several interview extracts with famous sportsmen and women, sadly not too many from the very elite top end (Michael Jordan, Roger Federer, Pete Sampras, Michael Schumacher etc) and far too much repetition of facts, names and stories. It's also poorly written in places and badly structured throughout, but the worst thing was it taught me nothing I didn't already know.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must read, 15 Jun 2006
Every Liverpool fan should own a copy of this book, as should most people who have a genuine interest in football. It's very well written in a very relaxed style, which makes it easy to read.

As Tomkins disects Benitez's second season at Anfield he argues each point clearly and backs it up with stats, so although it's obvious that Tomkins is a Red you simply can't argue with how he presents his case.

From looking at the arrivals over the summer and winter (the return of God!) to the on-going search for investment, Tomkins' has left no stone unturned to in showing us the major dealings at Anfield since the season started against TNS last July.

I just wish I could remember most of what he's written when I'm arguing with my mates about the merits of Crouch, Sissoko, Reina et al. Enjoy.
