Okay, so some of his jokes fall flat but it's an engaging, wonderful read and should be mandatory in schools because that's the only way people are going to learn. I just wish there were books like this for every subject because I'd wind up quite the swot.

What's most bizarre about this release is how much time and energy is spent on the marketing of the fact that it's one of the worst Dr Who's ever.

I recommend his literate, sometimes tongue-in-cheek work to pretty much anyone with a working pair of ears.
