About the Author
Edward Miller worked as a journalist for eight years before buying a Blackpool gun dealership at the age of twenty-six. He fulfilled a life-time dream by moving to the Lake District before he was 50, and it was from here that he and his long-suffering wife Alex set up their thriving Bed & Breakfast business. He is the author of Golden Dawn and Geese: Memoirs of a Wildfowler.

The book is put together as something of a mix of an "how to", a manual and anecdotal stories and memoirs. The story certainly did not pan out as I expected and just as you think it is about to stagnate it changes up a gear. There are lots of fun and comical anecdotes of the kind anyone who works and enjoys working with people or in the service industry will appreciate and identify with. Nowt as queer as folk as granny would say!
A perfect book for reading on a journey/commute or even whilst the other half watches the Xfactor! Especially for anyone with a love of the countryside.
You can tell that MILLER is not an author by proffesion, however the book is not badly written just perhaps not as polished as some other anecdotal books/autoBs and rather making the book poorer this, in this case grounds the book.
It makes a lovely change in these days of newspaper reviews and anonymous Trip Advisor remarks from the public, for the hotelier to have his say! The stories of dealing with the public in all its moods, for 25 years, are hilarious and there are lots of helpful tips for anyone thinking of going into the business. I guess the fact that Edward Miller is still going strong after all this time would suggest that he must be getting it right ! Highly recommended.
If you are after a book to help you through the set up, this is not it.....

Very readable and quite fun, but the author is, to my mind a bit big-headed! But maybe that's just me. He was obviously the right person for the job though.Published on 28 Mar. 2013 by Mrs Jacqueline Brown
I found the book quite hard going - wondering why I was reading about the authors travels abroad and the animals he kept etc. Read morePublished on 11 Jan. 2010 by J. Holmes
