Review in ‘the Voice’

“I found this book difficult to enjoy properly on three counts; the terrible type face chosen, far too many footnotes (on average more than one per page) and Jeff’s rather pretentious and ponderous writing style. Speedway is a rather basic sport and comes across better when described in words of fewer syllables…This review may sound rather anti Showered in Shale, but this book is a “must have” for all speedway fans, if only to argue Jeff’s opinions of the tracks”.
