Havenít got far into the book, not sure Iím a fan of the black paper, reading it is fine but I keep leaving little finger prints all over the edges of the pages. Petty maybe, but I like to keep all my books as perfect as I can, even to the point of taking the dust jacket off while Iím reading them.

I haven't looked into the things he has been saying as I ain't one for following anglers on social media, but when I met the bloke (must be around 7 years ago now), he seemed pretty down to earth. Due to jacking in the facebook nonsense and going back to forums (for nostalgia than anything), I'm looking into reading angling books instead of getting my eyes glued to a screen. The book is def on my "to read" list.

Up there with the best fishing books i have ever read, cannot put it down, literally on the last chapter.

I've laughed, cried, been gobsmacked, stared in awe, and related many times whilst reading it.


white text on black is not a problem, its quite nice in fact.


Only grumble was that when ordering two books (1 for me, 1 for my bro for xmas) my missus was charged two lots of postage!

Just finished the book and can only re-endorse everything Keith has posted above. Itís a great read and gives a really good insight into the effort and commitment these guys put into fishing.

No bull**** and very well written, he really takes you on a journey and the white writing on black pages makes no difference after a few pages.

Would definitely recommend this book.

Probably due to having proof read quite a few books over the past decade, I rarely, if ever, read carp books any more - I think the last one I read fully was Mickey's 'Merry Olde Dance'. But this is one I've been waiting for years for and, to be honest, I was not disappointed.

Got it for Christmas and had finished it before New Year's Eve, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

We all know how well Adam writes, and this comes over in huge amounts. His use of the English language is effortless and makes such a change from lazy text speak and phonetic spelling. He weaves a tale with humour and precision and it matters not a jot that you meander through the years without any particular chronology. The non-fishing stories are, for me, some of the best in the book and will have you howling with laughter, shaking your head in disbelief and, in one chapter, fighting back the tears - it takes a really good writer to bring out all of those emotions, and Adam is just that - a really good writer.

The design is really good, and for those of you who are concerned about white text on black pages, worry not. Within a couple of pages you won't even notice because you'll be so engrossed in the book. The inserts from the diaries work really well and in some cases are used as just another paragraph in the story, which works perfectly.

All in all, I can't praise this book enough. Yes, it's a big book, and at £35 is probably at the top end of pricing for a carp book, but there have been a few other 'big' carp books out in the past few years that would have been overvalued at half that price, so believe me, you really do get value for money here.

Trust me because I know, the carp book market is on its knees at the moment, and may not get up again, but this book is head and shoulders above anything else you'll read in the near future - go and get it!
