5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book for the background to the Underground
Although was a 'used copy' it was not damaged or below par in any way. Excellent book for the background to the Underground.

2.0 out of 5 stars A reasonable overview of the Tube
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?

3.0 out of 5 stars but could really have done with a good proof read throughout, 31 Dec. 2014
This review is from: A History of the London Underground (Little Books) (Hardcover)
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.
