SEEING FURTHER (edited by Bill Bryson) on Bookmunch

My review of the book SEEING FURTHER is now on the brilliant website Bookmunch here (I liked it).

For another (excellent) take on this book see SomeBeans blog here and here.

Hi Clare - a nice review (your link's broken tho')

I'm currently half way through Seeing Further, it is a great sampler for some really good writers and the relatively short format of the individual chapters led me to read some stuff, particularly on philosophy, that I couldn't cope with at full book length.

I'm writing a massive two part review/notes blog post to remind me what I read!

Thanks for letting me know Brian. I often find this happens when I link to Book munch - I think it must somehow drift around a bit...anyway I'll have another go.

Ian - thank you. And great you're reviewing it too. I'll watch for your review.

One thing I've realised tonight - because I remembered reading something in it and wanted to refer to it - is it does not have an index! I really think it ought to have had one.

Link now mended (for the moment, anyway).

@clare - having read your review I've decided that what I'm writing is not a review, but a blaggers guide for those that haven't read the book but wish to pretend they have or those that have read the book but have forgotten the contents!

I also noticed that the referencing style varies by author through the book.

SomeBeans: now this sounds an excellent and very useful idea. I shall link to this when it is published - almost as good as an index I expect.
