I really enjoyed this book (a bargain price for Kindle too) and am so glad I bought it on a whim. Extremely funny and a throughly absorbing read. I have already bought the follow up and can only recommend this author highly!

5.0 out of 5 stars Go out and buy it!, 30 Nov. 2007
A cracking read! I got this for my birthday from a friend and I am dead pleased I received it. It was an amusing tour de force from beginning to end and has now been snatched up by my colleagues who saw it on my desk. I hope I get to see it again!

I would recommend this to anyone who has a sense of humour and likes a good giggle laughing at the establishment. Double thumbs up!

4.0 out of 5 stars The Neon Handshake - Hell is for Heroes, 31 Jan. 2003
This review is from: The Neon Handshake (Audio CD)
With their much-anticipated debut album, Hell is for Heroes' have successfully combined killer riffs, distinctive vocals and strong melodies. And thankfully there's not the slightest whiff of Symposium in the air.
In fact its Placebo influences that are rife from the outset, most noticeably in the guitar riffs of 'Five Kids Go' and 'Three of Clubs', where mid-90s rock meets 21st Century 'mojo'.
Of the crop, its 'Out of Sight' which is probably the most 'nu-metal' song on the album, although its strong drumming and killer bass line means that it is still a damn fine tune. Undeniably the best track though, is previous single 'I Can Climb Mountains'; an anthem in the making with the infectious refrain 'I can build bridges from what you burn'. Naturally, the best way to listen to the song is loud and repeatedly. Pushing hard though, is the raw, dirty and frankly, sexy current single, 'You Drove Me to It'. Imagine the Foo Fighters and Placebo having grainy French film sex in a toilet whilst Christina Aguilera looks on, stroking a whip.
The only real problem with the album is that with repeated listens, singer Justin Schlosberg's vocals do become rather samey, most noticeably on 'Night Vision', Which is frankly, a crap song lacking structure and asks the question as to why it was chosen as a single, especially in light of the quality of the rest of the songs on 'The Neon Handshake'. Undeniably catchy, spirited and as more-ish as salt and vinegar Squares, it's a definite recipe to make you want to bounce round your bedroom in front of the mirror with no shame.
HifH prove they are one step ahead of their contemporaries, such as InMe and Hundred Reasons - in the fellowship of 'Nu-Rock', if you will - by providing instantly recognisable tracks that don't so much demand your attention as stamp on your foot, pull your hair and spit in your eye to get it.
If you don't already play guitar I can guarantee you will have an urge to start after listening to 'The Neon Handshake'. In fact, I can predict that teenagers bought this album for their birthday will be requesting a Gibson and Marshall stack for Christmas.

Hell is For Heroes
The Neon Handshake
Combining killer riffs and distinctive vocals with strong melodies is always an amazing combination and this is what HIFH much anticipated debut album, The Neon Handshake, has achieved and not a whiff of Symposium in the air. Thankfully.
From the outset early Placebo influences are rife in the guitar riffs, most noticeably in 'Five Kids Go' and 'Three of Clubs', where mid-90s rock meets 21st Century 'mojo'.
'Out of Sight' is probably the most 'nu-metal' song on the album, although having said that it is still a damn fine tune using strong drumming and a killer bass line.
Undeniably the best track on the album, 'I Can Climb Mountains' is infectious and an anthem in the making with lyrics such as 'I can build bridges from what you burn'. This song is best played loud and on repeat.
Current single, 'You Drove Me to It' is raw, dirty and sexy...
The only problem with this album is that the vocals could get a bit samey after a few listens. This is most prominent on 'Night Vision', which is basically a crap song with no real structure and makes me wonder why it was chosen as a single considering the choice of superior songs on The Neon Handshake.
Undeniably catchy, spirited, and as moreish as salt and vinegar Squares; a definite recipe to make you want to bounce round your bedroom in front of the mirror with no shame.
HIFH prove they are one up from their contempories, such as InMe and Hundred Reasons, in the fellowship of 'Nu-Rock', if you will. Providing instantly recognisable tracks that don't so much as demand your attention as stamp on your foot, pull your hair and spit in your eye.
If you don't already play guitar I can guarantee you will have an urge to start after listening to the Neon Handshake. In fact, I can predict that teenagers bought this album for their birthday will be requesting a Gibson and Marshall Stack for Christmas.
