Having just bought our first narrow boat I ordered this book in addition to the usual practical manuals and maps to help us on our journey. I was hoping for a glimpse into real life on the canal, some guidance and also an enjoyable story. I got it all. Funny, honest and thoroughly readable, this book is also littered throughout with lots of practical information.
A great buy for anyone dreaming of life on the canal, or in fact anyone dreaming of doing something a little different from the norm.
