Documentary approach that shows the English at work and at play over the last four decades. By turns gritty and evocative, it is a book one imagines that Orwell would have liked very much. --The Guardian, Photobooks of the Year 2009
The book contains some strong and touching images, and is very good on some key points in the difficult evolution of a multicultural nation. --British Journal of Photography
It captures the little triumphs and larger miseries of the lives of ordinary people - the poor and the upwardly mobile, the idle and the abandoned. --New Statesman

I found the pictures to be of excellent quality and that they capture the moment of the times in perfect detail. There is an essence of English lifestyle and culture throughout this book that brings back fond memories from the past.
In all, it is a great book, which would make an excellent Christmas present.
A Great book of a great Photographer.
