What a wonderful book! I read it on the plane and enjoyed every minutes of it. Indeed it brought to the forefront of my consciousness so many of the things that I dislike but had simply relegated to the cerebral rubbish bin. So pleased that I can get back to real dislikes once again. Anyway I look forward to volume 2 where no doubt you will deal with other egregious issues such as mission statements, political manifestos, etc.

I have thought I was alone in getting furious at obscure road signs, madly gesticulating news journalists, the wrong and over use of words but now I have someone to not only support my views but take them further. This is a very amusing book that hooked me from the very first paragraph.
I am sure he can find more things to write about so I look forward to a follow up.

Martin Wilson QC was, for many years, in practice at the Bar. He specialised in criminal law, defending and prosecuting in cases of murder, fraud, corruption and other serious crimes, both in England and Hong Kong. He always has enjoyed writing for pleasure but,had preferred to avoid the subject of the Law. However, his latest book, 'The Trial of Lester Chan' lifts the lid on what it is like be involved in a criminal case from the points of view of counsel for the defence, counsel for the prosecution and the trial judge.
He has three grown-up daughters and he and his wife, Julia, live in the Cotswolds
