An excellent gallop, succinctly praising and damning various bits, pieces and ephemera of modern life. I bought a hard copy of this, but it's going to look (and read) an ABSOLUTE TREAT on the Kindles. Author is the same brains behind the unnervingly splendid An Indian Calling
; a very different piece altogether. While this costs LESS than half a pint of ale (March 2012 prices) anyone even wondering whether or not to give this a go would be a fool not to.
