This book is truly delightful ... a nice nautical respite from books about boating that are more bravado than bravery. I bought it to read about adventuresome boating (kayaking) in England but enjoyed it in large part because it was more and people and places than punting. If you're looking for a book about whitewater pass this one up. However, if you'd like an irreverent read about the backwaters of England this May be the perfect book for you .
