From going to the pictures to Batman, eugenics to karaoke, you'll marvel at just how ace and inventive the Brummie race are. Some bloke called Stewart Lee (he co-created David Brent, or something) has written a foreword that will make you cry, make you think, make you realise how ace the city was, is, and will continue to be.
Buy a copy for yourself, one for your nan, and another for your milkman. Even when you get funny looks from laughing out loud while reading it on the train, you still won't regret it.
Long live Birmingham. Bab.
Sometimes the link is rather tenuous, but what the hell! Definitely an entertaining read, whether you're a brummie or not.

Well written, funny in places, informative and written with the reader in mind. Not JUST a list of things Birmingham has given us, but some fun stuff too!Published on 20 May 2015 by Wendy Harrison-Green
Found this moderately amusing, but only moderately, and (even allowing for the humour) there's some annoying inaccuracies in it, but it gave me a bit of entertainment.Published on 16 May 2015 by cjb
