There are some parts of it that are simply side splitting and other parts that make you shake your head in knowing despair (especially if you are no stranger to red tape and organisational incompetence).
PC Pinkstone demonstrates an acute understanding of the 'risk averse' mentality that is fuelling modern policing and highlights this in a number of ways. Also, his attack on political correctness (which is pretty much everything he writes) is both thoughtful and intelligent, assisted by some choice swear words!
A great book by a very funny man. Can't wait for the next instalment.
