Daniel Taylor has wrote a real gem of a book that has unearthed many anecdotes I had never heard before. Most books about the team of that period are Clough centric whereas this spreads the focus to the whole team which is for the better.
In my lifetime I have seen maybe four great teams in England: Liverpool in the late 70s, Arsenal in the 2000s, Man Utd of late 1990s and that Forest team. Taking everything into consideration Forest's achievements were the most remarkable of them all.
I didn't realise that their achievements were either overlooked or underrated on a wider scale as I have always took their brilliance as an accepted fact. How this team has not been honoured in the National Football Museum's Hall of Fame is bewildering. Let's hope this book gives them a nudge to rectify this glaring omission to the ranks of the great and the good.
While the book covers broadly the same ground as the excellent film, that's not to say you should pick one or the other. I saw the film first and thoroughly enjoyed it; and while I could recognise some of the dialogue in the book from the film, there's certainly enough original content in the book to make it well worth the purchase.
If you're a Forest fan you'd be daft not to get this. Even if you're not, give it a try and enjoy the trip back to a time when football was a very different animal from the polished, corporate beast it is today. A time when a team could rise from near the bottom of the second tier to be Champions of Europe in no time at all. Enjoy it - it'll never happen again.
