Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: And Now the Shipping Forecast (Paperback)
I bought this thinking that there might be anecdotes from a BBC presenter about the delivery of the forecast and about the other Presenters. It turns out to be a cobbled together collection of facts that are available in other books published previously and a few personal anecdotes about the author as a child. The delivery is like my headmaster at school trying to engage with the kids. Painful. Charlie Connelly's book on the same subject Attention All Shipping was more informative, funnier and a much better read. I can see why this book is being sold used for 1p so soon after publication.
