What a concentrated package of delight this is - everything I'd hoped for and more. A collection of essays which chart the esoteric territory of DF's 50s & 60s jazz, sci-fi, movie, literary and other cultural influences and then bring us up to date with his reflections on life on the road from a rather more seasoned perspective. Erudite, acute, and laugh out loud funny at times, this is a real gem from start to finish. He started out thinking he might become a journalist, and it's not hard to see why. But thank the Lord he followed the music.

There, I managed to write all that without saying "sardonic" once.

I rarely write reviews but having owned a Jaybird Sportsband and then the Justop, my experience is that they both last about a year with very heavy gym use/sweating and are also identical in pretty much every other respect, including sound quality. So weighing up £20 for the Justop v £85+ for the Jaybird is a pretty easy exercise, if that's the sort of use you're going to make of it and you accept that neither will last.

If, like me, you're not a full time glasses wearer but often need readers at vital moments, that means you will often lose them as well. These are perfect for me as they are good quality, reasonably stylish, reasonably hard wearing - and cheap. I have four on the go - one at work, one by the bed, one at my desk etc. I've only broken one pair over the last year, so they're not rubbish. If I lose one or it breaks I just get another. It would be good if they did 1/4 sizes too.
