Love or Loathe?
Amusing commentary on life and travel, or annoying American who thinks he might be British?

Absolutely love him! But then, I'm biased as he lived not far away from me when he lived in North Yorkshire and he's a jolly nice man!

Love him but with a healthy dose of "oh fgs, be quiet now before you run out of planet".

I used to love his column in the MoS, quite missed him when he left. I also like his "Short History" which makes science and history quite understandable for us numpties.

I've only read one (Notes From a Small Island). Deeply unfunny I thought, so didn't bother with any others.
