This book was the beginning of my love with the Industrial Revolution. This lady has been a somewhat Teacher to me and throughout Universoty I quoted her as much as possible. This is by far the most valuable book I own and even though I am now a Historian and Author myself, I always use this book as a reference, when asked a question from readers.

This is a must have book for anybody who enjoys reading or researching about Social and Economic Britain during the 17th 18th 19th Centuries
