Bought this book for myself, now just ordered another copy for my spurs supporting nephew.
What I really like about this book is how more-ish it is for unusual facts and figures, regarding all things spurs and that it's not just a book that you read once and then forget about to collect dust. I find that I keep on refering to it and picking out new facts and feats about Tottenham's glorious history to annoy my Arsenal supporting work colleagues.
Perfect present material as you're not burdening someone into reading a whole book in one go, but giving them a series of witty passages and trivia about (to quote Ossie) "totteringham".
This book is a real treasure for any Spurs supporter. It is crammed with some wonderful facts about this fantastic club. Amongst, other tales it explains why there is real rivalry between Spurs and the Gooners, (and no it's not because they moved to North London from Woolwich. It's a little more sinister and disturbing than that!!!)
There are some great quotes, from players past. Short tales about a certain player asking Billy Nick for a pay rise. Also, Paul Miller's reaction to beating Liverpool for the first time since 1912,the year the Titanic sunk are real gems that are part of the Spurs folklore.
I picked this book up and didn't put it down until I'd finished reading it in it's entirety, such was the draw of fact's, stories and trivia.
Even IF YOU KNOW THEIR HISTORY, buy this book. You won't be disappointed!!
I bought this as a gift for a lifelong Spurs fan and he was delighted with it. Not the type of book to start at page 1 and read through to the end - he enjoys dipping in and out and always finds new and interesting bits of information. Ideal gift for someone who thinks they know all there is to know about Spurs - they will be surprised by what they find here. Perfect stocking-filler.
Bought this for a friend who supports Spurs and he really seemed to appreciate it. Don't know much about the content but it's probably very useful for showing off in the pub with loads of random facts etc!
