“ . . . a stimulating and invigorating cornucopia of thoughtful reflections, some humorous, others more serious. We have hated each other for too long. Let there be commerce between us."
Professor Andrew Hadfield, University of Sussex

“. . . An eclectic sequence of topics about which the authors might wax lyrical over a few glasses of wine . . . These are pieces that say a good deal about the passions to which the writers return in private moments and the experiences that formed them.”
Laurence Waring, The Herald
