We had a successful book launch selling 48 books! I'll pop round with your copy one morning this week Stanley, Tuesday probably if that's OK with you.

Wendy delivered mine yesterday and I had an hour with it. It's Steph's best one yet. Well written, packed with research and I am learning a lot from it. Very well printed, pics are excellent reproduction. Definitely one for the shelf!
PS. Wendy is in fine condition...... I love her expensive hair do.....
