A Good Read,
This review is from: Uppies and Downies: The Extraordinary Football Games of Britain (Played in Britain) (Paperback)
There are occasions when authors and journalists take a well loved local tradition and tweak it out of all recognition, but as the wife and mother of Uppies, I am very happy to see that Mr Hornby has captured the joy and spirit of the Border Games so brilliantly. This book is an easy,interesting and informative read. It should not be just restricted to blokes! If you play or know someone who plays in one the country's extraordinary football games, it would be negligent not to buy this book.
