I think my slight problems with this book stem from the gap between its aims and myself as the reader, rather than any particular lacks. The narrative of a journey across America in a Recreational Vehicle with his two young sons and a couple of au pairs (Mum is left at home to develop her new career), it takes us through the journey competently but without much engagement. But, a) the book is self-published (and thus not very edited?) and b) it is quite obviously a guide on how to repeat this journey from someone used to working on travel TV programmes. So we get numbers and tourist information and details on what scares the kids, and not much depth.

I will register this on BC. It was a review copy and includes a printed letter from the author.
