I read some of them aloud to my husband (who was driving) and we laughed aloud as we reminisced about experiences shared.I later caught him red handed stealing a peek himself,and this from a man who never reads anything other than his newspaper!
So whether you enjoy a good laugh,wallowing in nostalgia or simply being a baby boomer you will not be disappointed.More than a book Crutches for Ducks was an experience.
This nostalgic adventure where we go back in time is so darn entertaining and the old photographs are priceless!. I could relate to some of the stories even though I am a female, not a male and from the United States, not the United Kingdom.
This book is filled to the brim with brilliantly witty quotes which makes it very difficult to share just one but here you go...
"I only fully realised just how much the telephone was now an essential part of everyday life when I inadvertently left my mobile phone in my car the other day. I was at the gym (yes, I know it seems unlikely but bear with me) and my wife had taken the car to go shopping, not knowing that my phone was on the back seat. I felt cut off from the known world. Goodness knows why, given that nobody ever rings me, and the only texts that pass backward and forward tend to be of the rather mundane "I'm here. I'll let you know when I'm leaving" variety. For my daughter and the generations following her, it would take radical surgery to part them from their mobile phones and I'm sure they could not envisage a world in which such things didn't exist, and yet it was not always this way."
Evoked so many memories and giggles. Highly recommended - will definitely purchase further books by this author Philip Whiteland.

I felt the author had had a very good child hood and although it seemed as if it was tough ,all of us. growing up at that time were priviliged to have such simple things .Published on 5 Aug. 2013 by IRIS Bennington
Nive and episodic so was easy to pick up and put down. I was disappointed when I finished reding this book as I could read this author's anecdotes for a long timePublished on 17 July 2013 by AnitafromBoro
This is well written and amusing, and will appeal to oldies - or any 'youngy' studying C. 20th. life - as it reminds us of all the ways life used to be. Well worth it the £1.99.Published on 31 May 2013 by Spiderman
Phil's reminisces took me back to my own childhood and memories I had long forgotten. A very enjoyable and funny read :-)Published on 29 April 2013 by Helwoo
