Any Eurovision fan will treasure this 200 page trip down memory lane. John Kennedy O'Connor's labour of love is packed with voting tables, photos, statistics and a year-by-year commentary. It's everything we fans could have wished for. As a reference book it's invaluable for settling puzzlers like just how many times Norway has come last or which singers weren't natives of the country they sang for. I'm forever dipping into my copy. Ignore the couple of reviewers here who marked this down. Clearly the book they'd prefer would be unsellable to a mainstream audience and let's face it, unless this book sells in quantities there'll be no further installments. And that is my only issue with this great book; as soon as it's published it's quickly out of date. The most recent copy stops at the 2009 contest where the fiddler from Norway triumphed. Here's hoping for a much anticipated update soon.
