5.0 out of 5 stars Paul Merton, a true historian, 28 Dec. 2005
By 
Scott Barker (Rochdale, Lancashire United Kingdom) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Paul Merton's History of the Twentieth Century (Paperback)
I first read this book a number of years ago and found it highly entertaining. Paul Merton show's his true credentials as a proper historian by systematically investigating the works of other so called historians and pointing out where they got it so wrong. We all owe Mr Merton thanks for publicising events during the 20th century that David Sarkey would have turned his nose up at. Paul really knows what he is taking about, after all he was there!!!
Seriously funny book, good work fella.

5.0 out of 5 stars True accounts never before documented., 6 Dec. 2006
This review is from: Paul Merton's History of the Twentieth Century (Paperback)
It's not often I can read a book from cover to cover but did with this, mainly as it's not too long. Laugh out loud funny from the man that is the only reason to watch 'Have I Got News For You'.

It will have you in stiches from beginning to end, if you like your comedy to be a little on the obsurd side. But it must all be true as you can see he was actually there by looking closely at the archive photos.
