4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book, 4 Jan 2010
This review is from: Just One of Seven: The Autobiography of Denis Smith (Hardcover)
I agree with all the other reviewers have said. I am a York City fan but was just as hooked on his playing days.

However although I don't know how professional the publisher is the number of proof-reading errors is quite astounding. A larger publisher would simply not allow some of the errors to make it into print. They are there on nearly every page - spelling, grammar etc. Admittedly there is a lot of text to check - thanks Denis and the photos are generous. But a good work like this was crying out for proper proof-reading. Fanzines could get away with this but not an autobiography.

Otherwise a great book.

Got to agree the huge( and I mean HUGE!) number of errors spoil the book-whoever allowed them ought to be kicked in the penalty area.
