Top of the Tips (Viz) by Viz
3.0 out of 5 stars Amusing up to a point, 19 Mar 2014
I enjoyed reading this but by about half way I found some of the tips being repeated with only the names of the contributor changed. And some of them were merely contrived jokes and complaints about organisations and individuals which raised a smile but rarely a laugh.
Remington HC365 Stylist Hair Clipper Set by Remington
4.0 out of 5 stars I'm happy with it!, 19 Mar 2014

Freud on Course: The Racing Lives of Clement Freud by Clement Freud
5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant., 19 Mar 2014

The bottom line is that he was a very funny man with a bone dry sardonic wit. Many of his anecdotes are laugh out loud hilarious and I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book.
