      • Into the Silence - by Wade Davis. Account of British Mt. Everest expeditions of the twenties. excerpt below from an Amazon review. Indeed, the descriptions of the WWI characters involved in the expeditions and their experience in the war is one of the better accounts I have read.
        The epic scope takes readers from the World War I battlefields to colonial India to Everest's North Col in equal detai and description. No part of the journey receives lesser treatment.

            • "Whatever Happened to the British Motorcycle Industry" by Bert Hopwood.
              A fascinating insight into a tale going from golden days to short sightedness, lack of investment,missed opportunities and failing to take heed of the writing on the wall.

              All a great pity!

                          • Got this for Christmas from my youngster. I'm a big Holmes fan (but not of his lates film incarnation a la Guy Ritchie), and so far I have to say it is very good.
