Format: Hardcover
I was reading this on a long train journey and too found the first few chapters hard work... but after skipping a few it got a lot better and some interesting and funny stories made the journey pass quickly, I will be tempted to look a few facts up such as Oscar wildes mum managed to translate and reprint one old hoax book in her own name... If you are not looking to read cover to cover and prepared to jump a few chapters, worth a read.
