Finally a book that pulls no punches. If you want a book with 'real information', this is not your man, but then it never pretends to be. If, on the other hand, you want a book with real opinion, from somewhere obviously deep in the scrum, buy this wonderful book. You don't have to agree with Dromgoole's views - you almost get the feeling he would prefer it if you didn't - but there is no doubting the man's style. I found this riveting - part manifesto, part professional suicide note, part love letters, part fan letters, part almanack, you name it, Dromgoole feels it, and then some. I've seen a lot of new theatre in my time, but I get the feeling that even if I hadn't, this would be pure entertainment from start to finish. An A-Z of contemporary accountants written with this much hutzpah would be as thrilling. I wouldn't use this as a barometer of theatrical consensus, but having read the book, I wouldn't trust commonly held views any more, and I'm a better person for it. I eagerly await the next volume.
