Product description

Review

A meditation on why life has been a dreadful mistake ever since the Reformation brought us paid jobs and the work ethic . . . Brave Old World is hugely inspiring (New Statesman)

One of those enthusiasts whose enthusiasm is hard to resist . . . Bizarre yet always beguiling (Daily Mail)

A delightful read . . . Share in the exuberant joys and comic misfortunes of an eccentric who has made up his mind about the existence he wants to lead, and has gone ahead and lived it (Mail on Sunday)

He writes in such a charmingly old-fashioned way . . . Utterly endearing . . . Packed with good advice (The Lady)
