This is essential reading for any local historian. Much local history is poorly written but if the lessons of this book are absorbed it will make significant improvements in the discipline. From chosing a topic to producing a final draft, it provides an abundance of illustrations and good practice examples. David Dymond is an excellent teacher for he doesn't just tell you how to write good history but exemplifies the art throughout the book.

The most useful and informative book I have purchased all year, a great buy for would-be historians. The book will give you great insight and ideas on how to tackle assignments and what to look out for.

Really helpful - one of the best I have read on writing and researching local history. David Dymond explains his subject very clearly.
