Have used NYC Subway many times on visits but still learned a few useful tips. A good, clear guide for visitors.


Red Machine: Liverpool FC in the '80s: The Players' Stories
Red Machine: Liverpool FC in the '80s: The Players' Stories
by Simon Hughes
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £12.79

5.0 out of 5 stars enthralling, 8 Jan 2014
I can only reiterate what other reviewers have said. Fascinating, utterly compelling and as someone who was there at the time (throughout early 80's) a great trip down memory lane.
Just one warning, don't pick this up if you have to be somewhere - you WILL be late !

2.0 out of 5 stars Frustrating, 14 Dec 2012

Having read Mr Kiernan's previous book about crossing Britain in a milk float, I was looking forward to The Idle Traveller.

What a let down! After initial promise where Mr Kiernan writes about his experiences of travelling and his decision to explore nearer to home, the book descends into what appears to be reviews of other peoples' (often historic) writing.

I tried to wade through the morass of tedium but gave up through lack of interest.

Mr Kiernan's own thoughts are insightful and interesting. His repetitive references to other authors are frankly boring.
