How many of the events are apocryphal I cannot tell but no doubt all, or almost all, are at least based on a kernel of truth even if distortions and elaborations have been appended over the years. Nevertheless, there is something here for everyone and it is perfect for dipping into when time is short.
I have the Kindle version and there is one problem with it. Some of the pieces are presumably printed in something other than black ink in the paper version and this causes occasional difficulties on the screen as the contrast is less than perfect. I found that increasing the text size made reading these parts easier but it is still a defect. However, the sections are very short (mostly one or two paragraphs) and not common. I have downgraded the rating to four stars largely because of the annoyance.
He absolutely loves it, has great snippets (apparently!) that he didn't know and he has lots of Railway books.
Good present idea ladies
