Well worth the money. There are two aspects to the book.
The first is the history of how the shirts have changed through the years (rapidly in recent years!) and this includes the sponsors and the fact the actual team shirts may be very different in material, etc from the replicas fans buy. The full-page colour pictures of the kit are good.
Secondly, what really made the book for me, was the related history of the club at key times - the UEFA cup final of 1984, the FA Cup finals, the signing of Klinsman, and so on. These brought back a flood of memories for me and reminded just why I support this great club. Some of these events are more painful than pleasurable (1987 FA Cup vs Coventry, 2002 League Cup vs Blackburn), but there is plenty to compensate. Most of the shirts belonged to individual Spurs legends and it was nice to recall what part they played for the club.
I'm going to get the related book Shirts, Shorts and Spurs by the Spurs kit man as a result of this.
I think the book is available as a download even if it sold out and I would advise all Spurs fans and football fans to invest in it.
I disagree with another review that the photographs aren't the best quality - I think it is beautifully and differently photographed, you can almost touch the shirts and do get a sense of how different they are from the replica ones sold. The author deserves a lot of credit for undertaking this project and publishing independently in an age of ePublishing. A great service to all Spurs fans and an essential purchase - get it while you can!
