Interesting little book, nowhere near as detailed as some others about the Underground, yet still a nice read. Though needed to proof read a bit more thoroughly, one example relating to the length of the Central Line states 59.4 km on one page, whilst the next page states 54.9 km, amongst a few similar errors. Still a nice read though and would recommend.

Interesting and informative, but could really have done with a good proof read throughout. Errors & grammatical slips get a bit annoying, as occasionally does the author's writing style - but if you can overlook these, then you have a good overview of the Underground on your hands.

Although was a 'used copy' it was not damaged or below par in any way. Excellent book for the background to the Underground.

Very comprehensive and informative, containing a variety of different facets of the London Underground history and network, and detailing many of the problems encountered with its construction.

Not an easy read at times as the organisation of chapters is somewhat haphazard and superficial. Christian Woolmar`s book about the Underground is a far better read.
Yet again, Amazon needs better typists and proof-readers as this book is so full of punctuation errors it can make reading difficult, sentences frequently making no sense whatsoever. Does the typist know about doubling consonants before adding a suffix?
