Most Blues will love this book, if you're getting it as a prezzie for one, they'll probably love it.
This book also offers much to readers who just enjoy a good laugh. Once in a Blue Moon contains many stories that will have you laughing out loud and in some parts will also have you moved by the emotional ups and downs life can bring. I will not ruin the book for you by recounting some of the funny stories, my advice would be to buy a copy and find out for yourselves.
In addition to the football, this book also provides the reader with an insight into Manchester life from the 1970s to present day. As a newcomer to Greater Manchester I found it really interesting to discover what this great city was like during this period - clearly Manchester has changed a lot. Anyone who has lived through this period of change will also enjoy reminiscing with the author as he goes through the years.
In short I enjoyed this book and I would certainly recommend it to anyone who fancies a good read. Clearly this book jumps out to Manchester City fans but as a supporter of a different club originally from a different city I can say I enjoyed it too.
The story of his near-death experience as a child to a happily married family man nearing his half century - who watches his beloved City on only slightly fewer occasions now - is told with warmth and feeling. A really enjoyable read.
And thanks to the £500m (and counting) invested in City, will Steve's next book be an account of his team taking over the world?
