I asked my son to get this book for me as a Christmas present. As somebody who has refereed for 5 years myself I felt this book could only be a useful tool. However what should have been a guide for me and for others turned into a nightmare almost from the off. At first I found the many errors amusing but shortly afterwards they became downright annoying. I appear to have the 3rd edition of this book and really must wonder did anybody, from author to publisher, actually ever read it before publication. It is littered with spelling mistakes, grammatical errors and incorrect punctuation. There are capital letters and full stops in the middle of sentences all the way through.
In conclusion I bought this book hoping to gain a little knowledge and perhaps support the author into the bargain. All I got in exchange was a lazily written book that only serves to irritate the reader. Avoid.
For my grandson, who is a professional referee. Some of the situations described in this book have already happened to him and he has been able to act accordingly because of this book. Very fast delivery.
