In a world where stories of police work are usually grim and gruesome, it's refreshing to find someone writing about the sometimes hilarious moments of walking a beat. As a cop myself, I can relate to the stories collected by Harry, a 29 year vetran of Strathclyde police. Glasgow humour is at its' best here with anecdotes that never cease to entertain. A gem of writing!

I've picked up a couple of these books now and think they are a great read. For me, I take them with me if I'm commuting or looking to pass the time without getting engaged in a longer read.

The books are built up of short stories ranging from half a page to two/three pages long. I find this gives a good mix of being able to dip in and out as well as being able to sit and read for a good length of time.

The humor is good and I think would be enjoyed by all and not just Scots. Any instances of slang are nothing too tricky to understand.

Very funny simple Glesca humour. A lot of the stories I have heard before so left me wondering just how authentic the rest of them were but a good read nonetheless.

Half of what's in this book is in the other books I've read by the author. I have another one yet to read hope it's better.

A compendium of rehashed and very old jokes mixed with somewhat dull anecdotes . Pity - I was hoping for something better.
