This is the perfect poetry book for all levels of readers, I have personally found some very touching, meaningful and funny poems in here. Many have forced me to do some research on the poems background, which is surely a good thing. Would make an excellent gift for the serious poet.

Gill & MacMillan's Soundings is a better buy if you struggle to climax at every turn of page. While I enjoy poetry, I enjoy it all the better with a bit of narration, notes, direction and provocation. Over the last year, I've picked this book up twice compared to Soundings which I open several times a month.
But that's just one opinion. No doubt my ancestors would disown me reading this.
