5.0 out of 5 stars finch hatton, an icon, 4 Aug 2009
superbly detailed book that describes a real life character warts and all from a time when Britain produced men and women that broke the mould and shaped the world as we know it for better and worse. The description in intimate detail of a time treasured and ejoyed by the privileged but deserving few serves only to demonstrate how far we have fallen as a society in our aspirations and dreams. In a society that condemns the different and despises success or enjoyment for its own sake, this book is a refreshing oasis in the poisonous desert that modern day totalitarian levellers would have us live. Read the book and understand how life should be lived.
