I had no idea about all of this in London. I've been there many times but now I'm going to look at it in new terms. When I walk around the different neighborhoods that have been "gentrified" over the years I'm going to think about all of the things that went on there before me. How cool is that! Oh, and the book arrived very quickly and was just as it had been described in the ad. Thanks seller! Appreciate it.

This book is well-written, and it is a page-turner, which, I require all history books to be if I'm going to read them. I haven't finished reading it yet because I have a lot of required reading that I have to do. But it's certainly not because I don't respect the writing. In fact, I wasn't supposed to begin reading it until the first of the year (2013) because it's part of a research project, but I just couldn't help myself after I read the first page.
