Excellent. Gives great history of the company.

This was my second Christian Wolmar book, after 'Down the Tubes' and it did not disappoint, well researched and nicely written. I personally really like Christian's style of writing. Gives background to a company - Stagecoach - that I have seen many times (although to be honest not used that much). Gave great insight into Brian Souter leaving me with a certain sense of admiration, even after knowing some of the so called 'dirty' tricks used in the bus wars.
Like 'Down the Tubes' my only gripe is that this book was written a few years back, and whilst there is an update as to recent developments at the end. It reads a bit disjointed ... what I'd love is for Christian to expand massively upon the updates.
Have just purchased and have to read another 2 of his books (On the wrong line & Great Railway revolution). Can't wait!!
