5.0 out of 5 stars Playing It Safe, 26 Nov 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Playing It Safe [see new edition]: The Crazy World of Britain's Health and Safety Regulations (Hardcover)
I purchased a copy of this book after hearing the author by chance being interviewed on Radio 4's Today programme, along with a senior offical from the Health and Safety Executive (who by the way had a great sense of humour and loved the book). It is indeed highly entertaining and quite an eye opener. Too many of these stories are frequently repeated in the media to be just "urban myths". I.e grave stones being toppled and Pears trees due to be chopped down in a London borough to name but a few I've heard in the last week or so. The author has quite clearly explained in the beginning of the book that he is not knocking Health and Safety, but that of our booming compensation culture. Any who disputes this exists must be crazy!! My only criticism of this book, is the several friends that have visited me lately and spent all evening with their nose buried in it. I shall be buying several copies as Christmas presents and highly recommend it.
