Very good for anyone interested in the Underground as a whole it tells the story in an interesting way . I already have another John Glover book about the branch lines & I never tire of dipping into them every now & again.

TOP 1000 REVIEWERon 10 April 2014
This is the 11th edition (2010) of a book first published in 1951. The book brings the reader up to date with developments, as well as including the history of the LU. since it's inception. Extremely well produced and, knowledgeably written. Separate chapters cover such items as the years in steam and the catastrophic PPP years. There are also chapters on the infrastructure and the workings of the system. Lots of photo's, mostly in colour, add to the descriptive text. An ideal book for anyone interested in learning about this ground breaking and innovative system. London would not be the size that it is without it, and would grind to a halt if it closed down. Well worth reading, and a good buy. I would have liked to see a coloured up to date map to accompany the monotone ones.

An excellent review of the Tube and a wonderful introduction - worth buying as the system marks it 150th birthday!

I purchased this book as I was a regular traveller on the underground in my younger days. Having purchased previous editions of this series it is interewsting to see how the system is always changing. I would recommend this to any one with an interest in the underground and its history.

Started off very interesting, but I found it got a bit bogged down later on. But very informative, especially for the closet tube geek....
