Product Description

Review

I think this book perfectly captures Cornwall as if it flashed before your eyes. Delightful facts, obscure references, irreverent humour and useful knowledge all rolled into a bite sized package. What more do you want from a book? I will certainly be giving it to everyone I know, even the Cornish. --Tim Smit CEO Eden Project

Format: Paperback
Brimming with facts and figures on just about anything and everything Cornish, this delightful book is guaranteed to inform and amuse. Published in a rainbow of colour, the enthralling text is accompanied by some beautiful and captivating photography. The Little Book of Cornwall is an enchanting read and should belong on all our bookshelves. The dilemma lies in which section to house it - General Knowledge? Travel? History? Humour? You decide. And, if you can't, display it on your coffee table and let others share in your enjoyment and good taste!

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Martin Hofbauer on 13 Aug 2008
Format: Paperback
In times where people lack focusing and claim to have so many different things to do, this book reflects what people urge. Facts, entertainment, vibrancy, merging tradition and modern spirit; information packed in refreshing language, embedded in colourful pictures. For me as a German who travels once or twice to Cornwall in a lifetime but being a modern person aquainted to english life I need Zeitgeist reading. Well Done and thank you!!

The dry humour of the author brings a frequent smile as you read this book, and the information about Cornwall is so varied and interesting that it's hard to put this book down. The text varies in colour and size, and is such an easy read that it is ideal for having around when you can grab a few seconds during a busy life. The photos are gorgeous too and to put all of it together must have been a massive task. I haven't had my copy long, but I have friends who have read bits and then bought their own copy. This book and a bottle of wine is going to comprise quite a few Christmas presents this year.

I loved this book it gives you lots of bits of information on Cornwall that you always ask when in the glorious county. I love way it has usefull and useless facts about all sorts and written in such a fun manner. This is a good book as a reading or reference book.

I hope that the author does an up to date version as this is nearly 2 years old.

Lots of interesting facts about cornwall, in bite size chunks, but strangely addictive!! A thoroughly interesting read and room for plenty of " did you know...." Moments
