By pass the baseball bits and it's fantastic!

Once I'd figured out that all I had to do was fast forward everytime he started twittering on about baseball, I found it thoroughly enjoyable.
Not as truly enlightening as A Short History...but his research and Brysonesque presentation of an era that is sadly overshadowed inbetween world wars is riveting. I will definitely keep it on my shelf and read it again in a couple of years as I have done with A Short History.
