I've had this book for a couple of weeks now and I have to say it's been a delight. Originally buying it to put alongside the other rarely used London guidebooks on the shelf this has been one that I'm actively coming back to time and time again.

Whether you've got a spare five minutes and you fancy learning a bit of London history, or you've been so busy all week that you've got nothing organised and just want to get out and try something new then this book has what you need.

It's well written, the designs complement it perfectly and there's a lot to learn that you won't see in a regular guidebook. Well done to the author for what must have been quite an arduous exploration of the city, check out the back stories on the books website for quite how much effort has gone into this book!

This is a great source for ideas for anyone spending time in London - lots of unusual ideas for places to visit both in the city and further afield. All you need to accompany this book is a good bus guide!

There are lots of guide books to London, but this one is the best I've come across for people who actually live here (or know the city pretty well), because even if you've been in London ages there are lots of things in Tired of London Tired of Life that will probably be new to you. For example, it turns out I work just around the corner from the Grant Museum of Zoology. I work in wildlife conservation, and I never knew it was there! My workmates and I now have a trip planned for one lunchtime next week. Also, even though I am a feminist and have been living in the E1 area for about 4 years, I never knew there was a Women's Library at the Metropolitan University near Aldgate. I do now, thanks to this book, and I'm going today.

London is a fantastic city with many hidden treasures and experiences within. This book suggests some of those and I suspect more versions will follow. The book includes outer London venues also, which is. Bonus. I bought this as a gift and will be buying more copies for the same reason. It is good value for money.

Wander into most bookshops (or browse Amazon) and you'll find a large number of different 'guides to London' promising secret, quirky, forgotten or otherwise offbeat places to visit and things to do.

Tired of London, Tired of Life has rather more mainstream suggestions than many of them, which makes it a great as an introductory guide for people have not yet thoroughly explored London but not so good for people who have already spent some time ferreting out from books or the internet interesting places to visit. There is a strong showing for places where you can eat, drink and shop, with plenty of sites of historic interest sprinkled throughout.

The good quality production and generous use of white space and graphics makes the book very convenient and enjoyable to leaf through. My only small gripe is that each item is allocated to a specific date and not all the dates make that much sense, such as putting going on a tour guide walk around London down for late December rather than the summer months.

Most recommendations are pubs with a short description of their history. I wouldn't plan a day out to London with the only itinery being to have a drink at a certain pub...
