Product description

Review

"That London could have had electric buses a hundred years ago is extraordinary enough, but as Mick Hamer recounts with great panache, the reason it didn't is even more extraordinary. This is a great tale, expertly told." --Michael Palin

About the Author

Mick Hamer has been a freelance journalist for more than 35 years, writing mostly for Fleet Street papers and news-stand magazines. For most of this time he was New Scientist's transport consultant. In 2001 he was short-listed in the Syngenta science writing awards.

Transport has been the focus of much of his journalism. He covered the public inquiries into the King's Cross Fire, the Clapham rail crash and the Zeebrugge ferry disaster for several national media organisations.

Before becoming a journalist Mick Hamer worked for Friends of the Earth. In 1977 he became the first director of Transport 2000. He later worked on transport research at University College, London.

He lives in Brighton and has another life moonlighting as a jazz pianist.
