Review from Guardian on The Hour by Michael Hutchinson

"...It all adds up to another episode in the venerable tradition of British sporting failure. It is perhaps a familiar theme, but Hutchinson proves as good a writer as he is rider (praise indeed) - congenial, funny and insightful. Yes, he did fall short of sporting immortality, but his book is a very fine way indeed to spend an hour, any hour..."

Matt Seaton from Guardian
