Do not waste your money or your time reading this embarrassing excuse of a book. The drunk from my local pub offers more coherent arguments than Durham, who continues to spiel contradictory opinion after contradictory opinion. Why he is given so many platforms to express his nonsensical ramblings is a mystery to all knowledgeable football fans. Avoid at all costs.

Why would you pay good money for a dire book where the writer is just trying to wind you up?

He's losing his touch on the radio and it's clear from this that writing is not going to be an option.

DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK.

Rubbish Rubbish Rubbish. Page after page of drivel and bile written by a 'man' who's sole aim it is, to wind up and provoke people. If you buy this book then I suggest you cut down on your supply of toilet roll, because there's only one good thing this book is useful for.

I've never written a review for amazon, nor have I read this book (well the first chapter free on this website) and I've decided that you shouldn't either. The book represents the sad ramblings of a pathetic troll with a terrible style of writing (assuming he actually wrote it himself, though one would doubt whether he has even the mental capacity for that).

This book is almost as dumb as me. Mr. Pellegrini told me I was dropped but it went right over my head.

Just a pathetic attempt at collecting cash in the Xmas book market. His opinions are unqualified and mostly unresearched. For example his diatribe on 'Revies Leeds' is laughable, the man was 5 years old when Revie left Leeds!
If you have to read it wait until next week & buy it from your local charity shop for 5p, in the meantime if you want an alternative view just ask the local pub drunk, he will know more!

Was given this book as a present from someone who doesn't like me.

An awful book from start t'finish. It is plainly obvious that Ade is a man of limited knowledge, vocabulary, brain cells, and devoid of personality.

The only redeeming factor is that this book is the only known cure for insomnia, with Durham's signature inane ramblings certain to send the reader into an induced coma.

My cat read one chapter and was subsequently violently sick. A coincidence? I think not.

The timing of this book is superb however, with energy prices rising this book makes an ideal combustible for an open fire.

I bought this because I am awful, a truly terrible person and I have been looking for someone who is worse than I am for over 10 years. I met Saddam Hussein and I was momentarily excited that he may be worse than me, but it transpires that I was still a much more terrible person.

So imagine my excitement when i discovered this book by this renowned dimwitted fool. I thought the end of my search was in sight...

And indeed it is! Adrian Durham is a complete shambles of a human being a collage of dreariness and re-hashed opinions stirred together with bile. He is much, much worse than I am and I thank the world for creating somebody an a lower platform of humanity than myself. His book should not be purchased under any circumstances. It really is bad. I am tempted to call the publishers and boo at them for 48 hours but I can't be bothered.

Do not buy this book. It is really really poor and if my review (now as the second worst person in the world) does anything I hope it dissuades you from buying this and gets Durham fired from all his current jobs and ultimately desperately alone and homeless.

Sickening.
