Review by George on 14th January, 2011
"Worth every penny paid!"

I ordered this book as a Birthday present from the family, but the Wife grabbed it when it arrived 5 days early, and she hid it. I looked everywhere as I couldn't wait to read it, but she is a sneaky old tart and I couldn't find it, so had to wait. The anticipation grew and finally, it was the day. I was not dissapointed! The book is everything it was said to be. It has a lot of explanantions of why Murray chose the personalities of the characters and what they were based on. It is very well presented and it is very easy to get immersed into the Dogs world. This edition gets pride of place on the book shelf, and I can guarantee that I will be reading it multiple times. I also guarantee that if someone wants to borrow it, they will be told to go and get their own copy. Well done Murray Ball!!!
