I found this book fascinating. There's a wealth of historical detail, amusing historical anecdotes, and a witty way with words. I think the book is a great achievement and I will definitely be reading more books by Travis Elborough. Another reviewer remarked how this would make a good TV series. I agree. A mix of the contemporary with archive footage would really help to illustrate the interesting material that Travis Elborough has unearthed. As the other reviews would appear to suggest, this book isn't for everyone, however if you enjoy history and quirky anecdotes that will enrich and inform your understanding of contemporary British life and culture then I heartily recommend this book.
