A very accessible academic study, 17 Aug. 2011
This has clear roots in the academic world, and the author has been made what could be a dry subject superbly accessible to the lay reader. The historical story is intriguingly intertwined with the modernday situation, and the reader is subliminally encouraged to go and see for himself. I have aleady, within three weeks of finishing the book, made three special journeys to see examples for myself, and additionally, appreciating the wonder that is the Ordnance Survey. This IS history.
