There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I agree with all the other comments "OK for US but no good for UK" I hope the blurb is changed to reflct this.
There are some good points but overall a disaappointment,but considering the cost I will put this down to experience.
I ave noticed however that the standard of news bulletins now seems to have slipped into mid Atlantic mode so perhaps this book may be useful after all. There are now verbs like "showcase" "hike" !!!! What happened to presented and increase.
