History for the regular person,
This review is from: First Class: A History of Britain in 36 Postage Stamps (Hardcover)
If you're like me, history books are something to avoid other than as a cure for sleeplessness or as adornments for the coffee table. Books that deliver interesting, accurate and engaging historic perspectives are comparatively rare - Anthony Beavor does it with every book of his and I have read and enjoyed them all. Chris has managed the same trick - interesting, quirky and full of nuggets of historic insight. Highly recommended.
