I can vouch for that! :wink:

An excellent read which I can highly recommend to all Cardiacs' fans although...Belch claims he was too busy to join this forum (in the book).

Better late than never in joining up on here, eh Belch? :)


With good reason too. Free publicity is always worth it :)

Postage to Europe is no problem - just send me a message on eBay and I can modify the price accordingly, or something.

I know, I finally made it onto here, although I'm not very good at remembering to log on regularly yet.

I quite liked Jim's goatee...

Belch nearly made me cry with the very last part of the epilogue : (

Seems like I also made Moke cry on the train this morning as he read the very same epilogue - I'm doing wonders for men wanting to get in touch with their sensitive side...

Have to say, I'm around 100 pages in and thoroughly enjoying this, a job well done.
Though it does make me realise quite what fun and frolics I missed by getting into Cardiacs a couple of years ago.... bugger

My mum and dad are Sheffield United season ticket holders so I'll be looking out the other book as well.

Mine arrived this week after a long journey to San Francisco! I am reading it proudly on the streetcar and the BART where everyone can see. :D

My copy appeared on my desk on Friday (you're very quick with shipping!), today (well, yesterday now) disappeared in a flash. I sat out in the morning with a cup of tea and your book and when I got round to looking at a clock it was 5 hours later, so I kept reading and have just finished it. (What can I say, I'm a slow reader, Mrs z0mb13e can read 3 books in the time it takes me to read one)

I'm somewhat at a loss for words right now, as I fight back the tears.

So I will just say thank you for now.

Thank you...
