I have already ordered my copy. Ben has always been a meticulous historian and I like the way he digs out the truth.

Thanks to those who have bought it so far and I hope you enjoy it. One person emailed me today to say they got it yesterday and stayed up into the small hours to read it in one go.

I don't think there is anything controversial in the book (sorry to disappoint) just lots of original information which has languished in attics and on bookshelves for too long. Plenty in there about Suzuki sensei which I think is going to be new for most people and some photo gems too which have not yet made their way onto the web.

I'm half way through Ben. Great book. Did I read that there is another offering in the pipeline?

Shep,

Thanks, glad you are enjoying it. Yes, I think I did write something about a second book, but it is someway off yet.

Great book, I'm really enjoying it.
Query; the photos on page 105 (I think) I reckon the guy Suzuki Sensei is chucking around is 60's iconic photographer Terence Donovan. Any thoughts anyone?
