I just got round to buying it from Amazon UK, and all I can say is that I’m digging it just as much as Rob did. I’m only one chapter in, mind you, but it’s shaping up as brilliant stuff. Every historian, every history teacher, should read this book.
(I also indulged in this DVD box set. I had a pay rise. It’ll soon be Christmas. It’s probably my favourite sitcom of all time. I don’t even know why I feel I have to justify it.)
Update: Knew I’d read about the book somewhere else too: Miriam Burstein referred to it back in June.
