Sample only - a great idea for a book,
This review is from: Celebrities' Favourite Football Teams (Kindle Edition)
I very much commend the author's efforts here on putting together this book for charity. Some celebrities - Alex Ferguson, Jim Bowen and Dickie Bird - really enter into the spirit of such an endeavour, detailing their early footballing interests thoroughly. I found the general mix a little disappointing with too many unknown 'celebrities' offering little and a few known celebrities whom I guess were either too busy or not particularly interested in football to offer much, or rambled on about US 'football'. I personally would rather the book only contained 20-30 thoroughly-written articles from celebrities, than so many brief articles from near-unknowns. I also would like to think that if I ever became a celebrity of some sort, I would never get so high and mighty as to be unable to help with such a charitable endeavour. If Sir Alex can find the time, then a few of the others ought to be ashamed.
That said, I found this an interesting, easy read and have added this to my Amazon wishlist for the future.
