The last is the most entertaining and this book is packed full of wit (or maybe just honesty).
So buy it, and buy it now.
Written in the early years of the last century, some of it has inevitably dated, and other barbs are these days less than totally clear. But there is still lots to enjoy. Some conceits and injustices are timeless. For instance, the topical concept of 'Riot' - 'A popular entertainment given to the military by innocent bystanders.' Or that for 'Painting' - 'the art of protecting flat surfaces from the weather and exposing them to the critic.'
This is a cheap and cheerful edition, and while it's not an object of beauty, it makes for an excellent toilet book.
