4.0 out of 5 stars A very good read, 13 Jan 2013
This review is from: The Manchester Compendium: A Street-by-Street History of England's Greatest Industrial City (Paperback)
It seems I was a little late in coming to this book. I lap up anything connected with the city of Manchester as I grew up close to the city centre in the 50s and 60s. This book kept me interested all through the recent Christmas holidays and as someone else said in a review it was only the lack of a few maps or diagrams that it didn't get 5 stars.

I think it's hilarious that all those 1 star reviews were written at approx. the same time to discredit the author and this book. I personally never even looked at the reviews at the time I decided I wanted it as a present. As if anyone would take what these people said seriously , most of those reviews looked as if they were regurgitating what others has said just because of some implied slight over ,of all things, football. Oh please , credit the great reading public with a little intelligence in future ,all you 1 star reviewers!

I found all the information very easy to read and loved the street by street aspect. I just had one of my Godfrey maps with me whilst reading which helped put everything in place. I was totally absorbed and would recommend the book.
