Bought it for my dad who is a devout Sheffield United fan. He loves history and statistics and the book served him well. He mentioned he read the readable bit in about 2 hours, learning a few new facts he seemed to really enjoy, but the bulk of the book is in fact tables and statistics. This is too the books credit though, it does appear to be a fantastic collection of stats going right back into the clubs history. A rather niche product, but fills that niche fantastically.
