"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
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.)

This is the most badly edited book I have ever had the misfortune of reading. I think they must have published the first draft by accident.
This book was not what I thought it was going to be, not a great read!Published on 7 Oct. 2010 by Grant Storrar
