Book Description

24 July 2007
What the media said about the original weblog; Jane Perrone; The Guardian ". a one-man manifesto for the rehabilitation of the traffic warden in the public consciousness." Tim Worstall; The Independent "Bill Sticker gives us his mordant view of life from the kerbside. Idiot drivers, irate myopics... Like most of those who blog about their jobs he is not overly impressed with the current style of British management." The Click; Times Online "This Parking Enforcement Officer's story of life on the job is grim, funny and gripping." About this book; This is 'Walking the Streets - the book, not the blog'; better written, more informative, more sarcastic, funnier, and with plenty of never before published entries and handy hints.

1.0 out of 5 stars dont waste your money 10 May 2010
As the previous viewer hinted at, the author doesn't get nearly enough interaction between the wardens and the public.
Ok then this could have been like bringing out the dead, the slow descent in to madness caused by the job. However the book delivers none of this.
I got the impression very quickly that the author likes the sound of his own voice, its sort of like reading the comments section of the dailymail website. You'll have to make your own mind up about th sort of person who wants to become a traffic warden, but I think this writer fits in to the megalomaniac category. And it makes for a boring read

3.0 out of 5 stars Okay, but not the best book of its kind 14 Oct 2008

Not a bad read, but not in my view one of the better blog/diary books around. For my liking, there weren't enough stories of day-to-day interaction between the parking enforcer and the public (although perhaps there aren't that many scenarios which could be set out in a book, i.e. driver gets ticket; driver abuses person issuing ticket etc.). Worth buying though.
