Here are a selection of early reviews of Reminiscing with Legends...
Sports writer Graham Spiers: “I’ve scarcely read a football book so crammed with interview, anecdote and testimony as this. What an absolute treasure trove for Hearts fans.”

Hearts fan Gordon Watson on Goodreads: "What an excellent read. Compiled from a collection of interviews with all those involved in Hearts' historic 1998 Scottish Cup win, this book flows from chapter to chapter without ever getting dull or repetitive, which, considering most of those interviewed were retelling the same tale is remarkable. The final chapter remembers the late Stefano Salvatori and is wonderfully put together. very moving tribute to a much missed man. A must for all fans of the famous Heart of Midlothian FC."
