Rousseau's mastery of the button-holing style in its most approachable form. He would never have embarked on his solitary walks if he hadn't had you in mind walking beside him, the perfect silent and acquiesent listener from a future age, when all his enemies were dead and he could reminisce to his heart's content. Russell Goulbourne's translation can be compared with the Peter France's Penguin edition as both have referable pages on Amazon. This Oxford edition is nicely printed, excellent notes, smooth-reading translation. I guess the better of the two and am happy with my choice. Mention of Penguin prompts me to recommend William Beckford's travel writing e.g.Elizabeth Mavor's Penguin classicThe Grand Tour of William Beckford (Travel Library). Beckford also treats his readers as his only understanding friend in the whole bitter world. and manages it even more persuasively.

Historically inn terms of both philosophy and education I find Rousseau a very interesting character but I found it very hard to empathise with such an introspective narrator apparently so determined to wallow in self pity and with such a strong sense of victimhood. The structure of the book did not really help. A little more about the walks and a little less about the walker would have provided more justification for the way the work was organised.
