Format: Paperback
If you liked Colemanballs from Private Eye you will ADORE this. It is a huge compendium of sporting faux pas from players, pundits and fans alike, and every page, without fail, carried at least half a dozen comments that reduced me to tears. Although it's obviously meant to be read intermittently, I killed in in two big bites. Sports include football, rubgy, golf, tennis, horse racing, boxing, and some more obscure ones, each of which contributes its own gems.

One of the best Xmas gifts I can think of.

If you want to nod off with a smile on your face or just want a lift during a quiet moment get this book. It is divided into different sports so you can chose your favourite pastime. Or you can just dip in wherever your fancy takes you. Almost every quote is a gem and I guarantee that you will burst out laughing at least once per page.

Hard back copy with a different cover, (better), and bought as a birthday present. I had a quick read, seems full of funny quips and comments. I am sure it will be gratefully received.

This is one of the few books that has made me laugh out loud. There are the famous quotes from presenters like David Coleman and Murray Walker, plus many new ones from around the world.

This book is an hilarious read. A great compilation of things said by commentators on the spur of the moment in all genres of sport. It's difficult to put down, you have to be disciplined to make it last. It is certainly worth making it last as long as possible, the laughter brings tears to your eyes. One of the best books I've purchased all year.

Endless series of rib-tickling quotes that we share early evening over an aperitif. The best of the humorous quotations books we know.
