I was expecting this book to be a quick bit of Christmas fun as a gift for someone, but it turned out to be so much more. The amount of players featured, and the length of the accompanying text (much more fulsome than anticipated) are just right, and the writing, whilst sometimes rambling a little, is well thought-out and engaging to read. Further, it is far more informative and interesting than one might imagine, with fascinating player backgrounds, and insightful quotes. For example, Dennis Wise doesn't seem quite such a devil once you're aware of his tough upbringing on a Shepherds Bush council estate. This was such a good read that I wrapped up the first copy as a gift, and promptly bought a duplicate for myself. Good fun!
