    George Graham: The Wonder Years (if you can find it) written by One Nil Down contributors with contributions from Brian Glanville and Henry Winter

    The End- History of the North Bank by Tom Watt

    Rock Bottom- Paul Merson

    The Glorious Game- Kevin Whitcher and Alex Fynn

    The Professor (don't shoot me, everyone)- Myles Palmer

    Behind the Network- Bob Wilson- best book related to Arsenal. Ever. IMVHO.

    Have also read Mr Wright (Ian, obviously) but it's very tabloidy, George Graham's The Glory and the Grief which is very whingey and also tabloidy and Safe Hands (guess who?) which is plain dull.

    Read Bob Wilson's, he really brings it home what Arsenal means to a player- also the chapter on Anna is heartbreaking- I felt so sad for the Wilsons.

    I just bought Fever Pitch the other day. I wish Hornby would write something about the more recent Arsenal teams though.

    If you enjoy ANR than The Professor is a good read.

    I've heard Jesper Reese's book on Wenger is damn good, too.

    Try "Rebels for the Cause" an alternative look at Arsenal's history

    The club also has an official yearbook, available through the club and some online stores.

    As an avid reader of 'serious' litterature, I found Addicted to be rather boring. Fever Pitch is marvelous and a must-read for all Arsenal fans, it is a great introduction to the club and the minds of the most devoted football fans.

    I've read Fever Pitch and Pires' auto-biography, but 'en francais'...Called Profession Footballeur.

    Wenger - Making of a Legend by Jasper Rees is absolutely glorious.

    The Glorious Game unfortunately, isn't really IMO.
