‘The ideal present for those who relish the querulous, quirky and quaint.’(Oxford Times)
‘Extremely enjoyable reading…there is a great deal of subtle English wit’(Good Book Guide)
About the Author
Iain Hollingshead spent two years on the Letters to the Editor desk before becoming a full-time feature writer for The Daily Telegraph. His more serious assignments have included reporting on the student riots in London and interviewing everyone from Michael Atherton to Gurkha veterans to a member of Seal Team Six, the elite unit which killed Osama bin Laden. His less serious assignments have included taking a bath in Las Vegas with six albino rabbits, spending three days behind the scenes at the Miss England competition, camping outside Westminster Abbey for the Royal Wedding, eating in five Michelin starred restaurants in one day, learning to flirt in Pizza Express, learning to Dance in Mamma Mia!, performing stand-up comedy to 300 eight-year-olds, training with the Royal Marines, climbing into a Spitfire and experiencing a Brighton nudist beach first hand. He now writes freelance for the paper. He has edited four bestselling collections of unpublished letters from the Daily Telegraph for Aurum.

A lovely book and proof, if proof were needed, that the newspaper-reading public are often wiser that the newspaper-writing professionals.
(and no.....I'm not featured in the book!)
Its a feelgood book and removes any doom and gloom making you realise that there is still plenty of humour out there.
I did not find this book quite as good as the previous two but it is still worth a read
