Well timed, Bernard.

Just had my daughter on the phone asking what I want for my forthcoming birthday!

I'm sure it will be a good one.

Good luck with the sales.

Its been sent to several people for review purposes and one of them has contacted me using words like quote: wonderful, comprehensive, outstanding, will become a standard work of reference...happy with that!

Cheers chums..

Bernard kindly arranged a copy for my Stand To! Reviews. A quick scan shows it to be a fascinating view of almost every area of work, life and everything in the city. Even without having read it thoroughly it looks a fascinating piece of work. More follows when I have fully read .
