Review by Tony McDonald, Backtrack Editor, July-August 2006

“A very worthy effort by this very candid author…supplemented by 409 interesting – if rather small – offbeat black and white photographs. Liberally laced with Scott’s dry humour and pithy observations, ‘Showered in Shale’ is a thoroughly absorbing travelogue that presents a whole new angle on the sport – from a fans perspective. Never afraid to ask a loaded question and attempt to get to the bottom of everything, Scott seeks out promoters, staff, supporters and a host of characters up and down Britain. The result is an entertaining read…it’s unique and refreshingly honest”
