"Perfect for a boy's stocking "- Evening Standard

"A perfect little stocking-filler" - The Times

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By James Maby on November 2, 2009
Format: Hardcover
This is a brilliant little Book.
Ingeniously and imaginatively compiled, beautifully produced and art directed. And well-written with spare, intelligent prose free from the usual breathless hyperbole of the `editor's choice' genre - the items chosen and the stories that go with them speak for themselves. And some great little nuggets of interest: I didn't know what happened to Rommel or that Churchill used to order a glass of whiskey for breakfast or that there was a painting of the real Mr.Darcy from Pride and Prejudice. I also didn't know that if I'd had a spare $36 million last year, I could have bought a space shuttle. I'm not usually a fan of so-called `toilet books' but if the safety of the nation depended on its citizens being more regular, I would make this book compulsory.
