3.0 out of 5 stars A very attractive cover on the book but the inside content did not live up to expectations, 8 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Underground: How the Tube Shaped London (Hardcover)
I was initially attracted by the cover and subject of this book. As Londoner I kow quite a bit about the london underground, having travelled on it since the early 60s. The content is mostly relevant and interesting but left a lot to be desired. Many of the original stations were in by name only and in a book of this size I would have expected to see many more photos of stations. The layout of the book was very disappointing given the quite beautiful cover - a really good graphic design. I opened the book expecting to see page layout etc similarly designed. I will keep the book as a reasonably good record of the history of the Underground but I would not have bought it if I had been able to see the contents. It's a pity when viewing books online that most do not allow access to the inside pages.
