"As I sit here going through the prototypes and plans for the Foruli collectors editions of How Not To Run A Club I can see how beautiful they are and the obvious respect that has gone into creating what I can only call works of art. They really evoke and bring to life the original and authentic graphic identity of the Hacienda around the text, so now the book not only tells the story but becomes a much more complete testament to The Hac. Its design and identity was always funded with no thought of expense, as the club prioritised Art well above Money. Foruli have managed to immortalize my original book with these special editions and I have to say I'm delighted with the result. I just hope someone treats me as reverently when I am gone!"
Peter Hook, Manchester, June 2010

"There are many sharply drawn vignettes in Hook's entertaining memoir . . . Hook is revealed as a born anecdotalist . . . engaging and hilarious" Sunday Times
"Saturated with gleeful hedonism, Hook's memoir includes frank admissions of eye-popping commercial ineptitude, which gives the book a restless energy" Financial Times
