5.0 out of 5 stars If you want to get ahead...get this book!, 8 Dec. 2004
Speaking as someone who knows more about brussel sprouts than football, I've got to say that that this book really is superb. The book joins the dots on many cultural and sartorial references that are part of the 1960's to present day in Great Britain. The book provides a voice that has been waiting to be heard for some time - books that fuse together the subjects it covers are as rare as hens (wisdom) teeth. This book now proudly shares the same bookshelf as Melly's 'Revolt Into style', Jonathon Green's 'Days in the Life' and Barry Miles's 'In the Sixties'. What really makes the book so riveting are all of the great insights from the people who are interviewed in it. These people are characters and players in their own field, whether it be football or not. The book is very well researched and excellently written - you must buy it. Careful though - once you've read this book you might decide you need to upgrade your own wardrobe by visiting your friendly tailor!
