4.0 out of 5 stars
It's in the detail, 20 Jun 2012
As a book it's able to cover stories that the television series can't. It includes fascinating and sometimes surprising details about the history of each street. It doesn't quite bring the history to life in the way that the programmes in this series have so far, but it is an absolutely fascinating, brilliantly researched social history and well worth the read. Recommended.
