I thoroughly enjoyed Ron Brind's book on C.S. Lewis and his life in Oxford.

The locations, pictures and personal anecdotes really make this an informative book, and Ron's conversational tone throughout makes it very readable.

It is just like having Ron sitting next to you sharing his stories and memories.

My son and I recently spent the better part of a day in Oxford taking Mr. Brind's tour. It was personal and kind and quite informational giving us a glimpse inside the city of Oxford but especially a peek at the lives of "Jack and Warnie" Lewis, his neighbors through his growing up years.We came away from the tour feeling we had experienced the very human side of a great man. The book is written in such a way that you really could take the tour on your own and get a feel for the life of C.S. Lewis. The pictures and directions are quite helpful. But if I were you, I'd read the book first to get the lay of the land and still take Mr. Brind's tour as he is a treat himself.

I've had the privilege of reading Ron's book and taking his tour of C.S. Lewis sites. Before I went to Oxford I wondered how I was going to locate Lewis' home, church and other significant places. I was delighted to find that Ron has done all the homework for me based on his lifetime of living and working in Oxford and personal experiences as a childhood friend of Douglas Gresham. Everything you need to locate the things you want to see most is in this book.

One great thing is that Ron adds many personal insights and observations as well as his passion to get C.S. Lewis' home open for visitors on a regular basis. The book is more than just a guide, it, reflects his personal crusade to restore C.S. Lewis sites as they were during Lewis' time and to open up relevant sites to visitors on a regular basis.

While this book is clearly not intended to be a scholarly work, I hope that a future edition will include an index as well as references for the sources used. That will make it significantly more useful and enduring a contribution to the whole of works related to Lewis'..

Even if you never have a chance to visit Oxford you will benefit from both the information and the inspiration Ron Bring brings to the life and work of C.S. in "A Guide to the C. S. Lewis Tour in Oxford"

I had the pleasure of meeting Ron Brind when taking the C.S. Lewis Tour in the winter of 2005. I wish I had had his book then! To have read this fabulous book before my trip would have added to the enjoyment. Ron is knowledgeable about his subject and considerate about how he presents his material. I feel I could rent a car and take the trip myself without any apprehension about getting lost. Add to this the personal touches of his childhood memories about C.S. Lewis and you have a unique guide book to accompany you on your journey. Honestly, when you have done with reading `A Guide to the C.S. Lewis Tour in Oxford' you might have trouble remembering if the bits you recall were something you read or if you had actually been there! Read the book and treat yourself to the tour; you will be touched by the passion Ron Brind brings to the memory of C.S. Lewis, as well as his ambitious desire to preserve the material legacy Lewis left behind.

This book is great reading for anyone who is a fan of C.S. Lewis. The locations, pictures and personal anecdotes really make this an informative book, and Ron's conversational tone throughout makes it very readable.

And if you plan to travel to Oxford, this book is designed to take you step by step on a tour of the world and life of C. S. Lewis. (Although if you do get to Oxford, I highly recommend taking Ron's live tour, a great bargain).

Top marks for an excellent book!

Format: Paperback
Myself and my partner, Kerry, visited Oxford to soak up the surroundings and to research our production of the play, "Shadowlands" by William Nicholson, based on the story of CS Lewis and Joy Davidman. On arriving, we did not know where to start until we found a copy of Ronald K Brind's wonderful book. It really was like finding treasure as it is totally unlike any other book written about Lewis, of which we have read many. All of them are fascinating, but this one is truly personal. Mr Brind manages to convey a true sense of what the lives of these extraordinary people were truly like drawing on his first hand experience and providing us with such unique nuggets of information that can only be communicated by someone who was actually there.

In addition to this, Mr Brind's passion for ensuring that Lewis' legacy is more evident in his home city, nationally and internationally shines through every word.

The tour itself is quite indescribably inspiring and moving. We self navigated the route over the course of a couple of days and cannot really put into words what an amazing experience it was. The words and photographs provided are extremely clear and made the tour easy to follow, including so many places of interest that, by the time we had finished, we felt that we had really got to know "Jack" and Joy.
