5.0 out of 5 stars All human life is here, 9 Jan 2007
No matter how familiar with (or tired of) London you are, this fascinating book contains nuggets of information that will entertain and intrigue you. The 'London Beer Flood of 1814' was just one entry that will ensure I never look at Tottenham Court Road in the same way again. For introducing me to Clarice la Claterballock, I give the author thanks.

If you enjoy Schott's Miscellanies or the TV quiz 'QI' you will recognise a similar delight in obscure trivia and startling facts. It's a wonderful book to dip into, but the clear layout and excellent index also make this a very useful work of reference.

Buy this book and fall in love with London all over again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous!, 30 Nov 2011
This book contains some fascinating facts about London's past, its geography, transport, references in film and literature, famous people... it has all the bases covered! I think it will appeal to Londoners and non-Londoners, as this book has so many odd facts. When I nest go to London, I will have a look at this book, and make a point of trying to imagine London when it was a collection of villages, or how is was before the Great Fires or how it was during the blitz. A lot is packed into this shortish work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Did you know ?, 30 Nov 2011
This review is from: The Book Of Lists London (Paperback)
When you read this book you will become a vast storehouse of trivial information about London. Such as, Where would you find Nepolians nose? Famous murerers, chancers and many more things. A must for any London cabbie on the knowledge.
