I'm a big fan of the show, and was hoping that this could be a way to relive all my favourite moments. I think the book starts off well but tails off somewhere during the second half. A little bit like Will Buckley's form when he's on the show so I can't say that I was particularly surprised. I also thought some of the Q&As were lacking, some filled two pages, the other two paragraphs! Nevertheless I think it's a good gift for fans of the show but I was left wanting more.

if you like saturday mornings on 5 live, you'll like this book.
"fighting talk" is such a funny, entertaining (and informative!) programme
and the book is a follow up, full of facts and anecdotes from both presenters.
it's not a book for a start to finish read, it's a "dip in and out" one. i'm sure
colin murray (current presenter and co-author) would appreciate my place of
rest for the book at the moment... my bathroom! perfect to read, funny facts and
figures while you have time on your hands!!
summing up.... if you like sport, sporting info./stories/facts for that pub quiz,
you'll love it. well written and put together.Fighting Talk: Flimsy Facts, Sweeping Statements and Inspired Sporting Hunches

Have to admit I'd never heard of this radio show before I stumbled across this book, but I was intrigued by a quick glance through it.

It is a bit of a curate's egg. It ranges from the exquisitely funny (and really quite surreal) to the extremely mundane and unimaginative. Much of the text does suggest that it would be funnier listening to the material on the show (It's the way I tell 'em as a fairly unwise man used to say).

The humour is a bit laddish but it has the saving grace of lots of self-deprecation and it makes a great emergency car book (For dipping into when you arrive somewhare just a few minutes early.)
