A shocking, unbelievable read about Simpson's experiences.
Review of Touching the Void - Joe Simpson by Elna642

Advantages: Emotional yet still accurate and factual
Disadvantages: Lots of technical language that some may not understand

At school a little while ago we looked at an extract from this book, and I decided I may as well read the rest of the book too. If you donít already know, Joe Simpson suffered a serious leg injury while climbing a previously unreached summit in the Peruv ... Read review

T'ai Chi Classics- That is what you get & CMC form instructions
Review of Tai Chi Classics - Waysun Liao by opentopersuasion

Advantages: Covers a broad area on the subject. Has exercises that you won't find in most tai chi books.
Disadvantages: As this is tai chi, it's best to work with a good instructor to compliment this book.

...book covers many aspects of tai chi, from history to condensing breathing, the Cheng Man Ching 37 form (with hand drawn illustrations) to translations of the Tai Chi Classics to finish off. It is therefore a fairly complex book and it's likely you wi ... Read review

Funny Football.
Review of Football Wit - Aubrey Malone by ravingreviewer

Advantages: Good read.
Disadvantages: Some people may not understand it.

Football Fun is a fairly small but comedic book, that details many one liners or quotes by many famous people - some of whom are directly involved in football such as managers or players, or other people who are just innocently commentating on what many c ... Read review

I am Danny Murphy.................whoops!
Review of I am the Secret Footballer - Anonymous by thedevilinme

Advantages: Good summer read
Disadvantages: Not revalatory enough

So who is the Secret Footballer? Well there are enough clues in the book to confirm he is not black so that cuts it down to 75% of the remaining players and not foreign and so down to the last 40%. He is articulate and intelligent enough to write an engag ... Read review

Excellent review. I'll agree that money is one of the big problems in football, but is it cos the players are greedy? If someone offered you millions to do the job you do now, would you turn it down? Most players get where they are because (a) they can play and (b) they want to. I think the best response for any manager to take with a player not playing by the rules or the ethics of the game (yeah, naÔve ain't I?) would be to leave him on the bench for the rest of the season Ė then see how much he still wants to stay. by hiker

Advantages: Topical

With convicted rapist Ched Evans in the news right now there is no better time to read this book. What people havenít thought about with footballers accused of rape is whether they were set up by criminals to be blackmailed and, maybe, his refusal to pay ... Read review

Didn't Leave Me In A Spin
Review of Twirlymen: The Unlikely History of Cricket's Greatest Spin Bowlers - Amol Rajan by Soho_Black

Advantages: Impeccable in the level of detail
Disadvantages: Does fail to entertain

Although they may lack the bang and bluster of the fast bowlers, the three leading wicket takers of all time in Test cricket are all spinners. They may look calmer in their run ups and action, but the effect they put on the ball can be incredible. Rathe ... Read review

What happens in the dressing room says in the dressing room, so says Sir Alex, his long awaited autobiography not answering many questions about his illustrious career. Fergies approach is more of a memoir of Manchester United here and simply responds to ... Read review
