The author also took the time to inform you of the various highs and lows in the construction of the first Underground system in the world.
I would recommend it to any one who has traveled on the tube.
Well, you get what you pay for (£2.56 in this case).
It is full of facts about the history of the tube, how the lines started, how they got their names and fun trivia such as what stations have been used in location shoots.
I am fascinated now by the 'missing' stations; those that closed down long since but can still be glimpsed if you know when and where to look. Suffice it to say, next time I go down to London it will be with book in hand and trying to avoid busy times so I can have a good look for these ghost stations.
I can imagine that some people will think there is too much detail in parts, such as the fact that all victims of the Bethnal Green crush are listed. But in my view this serves as a memorial to them, I knew nothing whatever about this disaster before I read the book, if I was a descendant I'd be pleased they were not forgotten.
So all in all, a great read, one to go back to again and again, especially if you are going to be 'going underground'!

Probably more enjoyable if you are familiar with the tube however.
