When you consider the wealth and real quality of material available about the East coast by writers such as MG, Charles Stock, Hervey Benham and Bob Roberts or video bloggers like Dylan Winter (Keep Turning Left) this book feels like its cashing in on the legacy of MG. I bought the kindle version, so the pain of asking for a refund is greater than the thought of the waste of the three quid or whatever it cost, but if I'd paid for the print version it would have been in the returns folder. On the other hand the refund might buy me a pint at the Jolly Sailor at Maldon.
