5.0 out of 5 stars An eye for the extraordinary in the ordinary, 21 Feb. 2008
This review is from: Queuing for Beginners: The Story of Daily Life From Breakfast to Bedtime (Hardcover)
Joe Moran's book is a masterpiece of brilliant observation. "Queuing for Beginners" is a history of everyday life in Britian since the 1940s and looks at the imperceptible changes - mainly as a result of technology or political policy - that have taken place in such daily activities as commuting, going to the bank, business meetings, watching the weather forecast or going to bed.

It's a fascinating read, particularly if you work in a field such as market research and it is very well-written with humour and humanity.

I'm pleased to see that it's coming out in paperback so it should reach an even wider audience - it certainly deserves to.
