Review

Reviews of Manchester United Ruined My Life:
"This is a wonderful book ... it is also extremely funny"

(The Times)

His prose ... is never less than sharp, smart and easy on the eye ... His writing is so attractive ... [I] would be thrilled to read more (Jim White, Guardian)

It is his childhood and absent friends that touch the rawest, universal nerve (Simon Garfield, Mail on Sunday)

Shindler's art lies in conversational writing, and an ability to change gear deftly from humour to devotion and back through fanaticism to the black comedy of Manchester City (Howard Davies, The Times)

Shindler is both touching and convincing in his evocation of his formative years ... it's skilful, entertaining and heading for the top of the league (Richard Pendlebury, Daily Mail)

Evocative, funny-sad and warm-hearted (Michael Henderson, The Times)

Sits in the same class as Fever Pitch ... Shindler's down-to-the-bone honesty also reminds us self-indulgence can be great entertainment (The Times)

This could still be the most important football book since Fever Pitch capturing, as it does, the delicious irony that caused City fans to fall into a soon to be legendary chorus of "Are you watching Macclesfield?" (Mick Middles, Manchester Evening News)

'Manchester City Ruined My Life... is funny, touching and telling.' (Sunday Express)

'****' (The Daily Telegraph)

Book Description

A beautifully written and poignant football memoir from the author of the bestselling Manchester United Ruined My Life.
