Review: In chapter 4, you'll come across the rather baffling passage: "And twice a week we drive out to Rock Creek Park for lessons joying it. There’s a dedicated feeling about here that gives in self-defense from a judo expert. It’s tough, but I’m en-everything meaning. I’m out of the war, too, which means life again makes a little sense.’" It took me a little head-scratching to work out that this should be: "And twice a week we drive out to Rock Creek Park for lessons in self-defense from a judo expert. It’s tough, but I’m enjoying it. There’s a dedicated feeling about here that gives everything meaning. I’m out of the war, too, which means life again makes a little sense.’" Still doesn't explain the American spellings used in the book, but heigh-ho. Normal programming now resumes.

Review: Dated now but still ok. Rather abrupt end
