It is difficult to follow the book. It is not one story (start, raise and end of a firm), but many different short reports of events from different firms in different places at different times. Most of the stories start in the pub, followed by a heroic row, then somebody gets nicked or injured and then everyone is happy. That's okay for ten pages, but it is a little boring to read the same stories over and over again. I miss a little bit the overall picture. Nobody writes abourt times in court or in prison, to show the consequences of his actions. Most of the authors have served.
On the other hand it is interesting to see how people needs to get some kick int their lives through senseless violence. These guys want to have a row in the first place and take football as an excuse. Violence is more important than your team! But the reality is: I knew that before, and therefore it is not worth reading it, except you were part of the show.
