Format: Paperback
If you have an existing interest in London's Underground you will probably have all the information this book contains already on your bookshelf. The title is probably the most misleading book title I have come across. If you expect to read a history of the problems in supplying electricity to the lines and the type of electrical equipment used on the trains e.g. motors and control systems then forget it. It does not even mention the very basic fact of why the Underground uses the 4 rail system. This book is a catalogue of line openings, rolling stock and similar developments in the history of the Underground all of which are better covered elsewhere e.g. John Glover's History of the Underground.
Very disappointed.

Unfortunately, there are so many grammatical errors, misspellings and convoluted sentences, I can't really recommend this book. Were there no editors or proof-readers available at Amberley publications to correct this.
An enthusiastic writer, obviously passionate about his subject - but that's not enough to make a good, well-authored book.
Sorry, not for me.

I commute to work by underground every day and this was given to me as a "travelling read". I was not sure what to expect as I am not a train expert, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. The book charts the development of the network as a whole and gives details about individual lines, as well as providing information about the types of trains. The photos in the book are fascinating to see and compliment the text.
