A lovingly warm and witty stroll through the British psyche and it's surrounding countryside . Dwelling mainly around the lake district .

There's a nice bloke behind those words - genuine, funny and lilting from anecdote to historical trivia to subtle observations.

Enjoyed reading this book over a quite a long period of time, great book to just pick up & read a chapter with a brew.

A really good read. Will have to get over to UK again and do some of those fantastic walks in the Lakes.

Had read his column in Country Walking and enjoyed it. So was indulging in a book of them. Well done

Very entertaining written in chapters short and passionate enough to almost be poetry.

I really didn't like this book. I cant remember reading a book that says so little in so many words. Each of the 50 or so chapters meander without discussing anything of any real substance. I reached the end of the book feeling incredibly underwhelmed.
The author repeatedly tries to convince us that he is a "serious walker" and that he "loves walking". Whats the point, does anybody care? also, why does he persist in telling us about going to the pub after walking? The same old Wainwright quotes soon became dull and I was left feeling that i've heard it all before but better. Perhaps fans of the author may find something redeemable in this book, but if you are looking for some insightful walking literature then avoid this.
