I suspect that you're not going to get too much out of this book without having lived in Sydney for at least six months -- much of it, I think, depends on having visited and seen the suburbs, streets and sights, because the author uses the present city to explain its past.
My only complaint about the book is its "non-linear" structure. The book is a great and fun introduction to the city's history (emphasizing its murky past) but I did find myself wishing for more structure and detail. If Sydney really interests you, then you might want to also order a more 'dry' history of the city to complement this book.
The book feels like it will be almost a manual for Sydney, to go back and check facts, mostly to solve arguments I suppose, because you get those conversations where people want to out-dark each other by knowing the dirtiest stories. Yeah this book will come in handy for sure

I'm from Sydney, and I learned things about the city of my birth that I had no idea of. It's an amazing tale told in an incredibly personal way. It is one of JB's best books.Published 3 months ago by A. Perks
