Purchased this from Amazon.
A great read from cover to cover. Perhaps it helps that I 'buy into' Mike - his ideas, views, politics and a smattering of rail enthusiasm.
I wanted more from the journey though, several chunks of the journey were missing - I wanted to know what Mike made of Newquay for example. I guess this is ultimately an editorial decision - there needs to be a trade off when covering the whole country in one book. Perhaps this could have been volumes one and two, though this may not be attractive for the sales figures / publishers.
Could there be some more content online?
I've tried to search for the photos he kept taking, they'd be fascinating to see but no joy yet!
Keep a decent road atlas by your side when reading this, particularly for the areas you are less familiar with.
Well worth your time, a great book full of Mike's personality, totally enjoyable and feelgood. As others have said, Britain isn't broken, you just to get off your arse and make the effort - you'll soon meet decent folk. Just wish I had the guts and stamina to do it for myself!
