No, it's Kindle only I'm afraid. There is a 'cloud reader' that works in Chrome and Safari, but you need to have a Kindle registered to buy.

probably not enough dwarves, wizards, swords and spaceships for the average geek on here James, but all power to you for completing and publishing your work

Well in all humility and honesty, I don't think you'd like it Andy. It's a collection of writings that  are conceptually similar to some of my posts here - reflections, opinion pieces, a few travelogues. I do appreciate the interest, though.

Good luck with this, Slim.

I downloaded the free sample and to tell the truth I enjoyed it more than I expected to. After 8 years I think I must be used to his style now. ;)  I might even buy the whole thing.   In the chapter about not voting I could sense his disappointment with the Tories when they supported an action (Iraq) he finds objectionable. I think we have all felt that frustration at some time. James' comments about Feedback are spot on. A horrible release.

In all seriousness good on you for writing a book James :)

You put this together for yourself on the Amazon page?
"Sometimes provocative, often insightful and occasionally surprisingly personal, it's a witty, beautifully written and unusually candid work reflecting a particular perspective from the middle of England in the early 21st century.
A priceless opportunity to gain an unfiltered insight into what it means to be British in post-millennial Britain."
"Unfiltered"  ::)  Err - no such thing. We are all 'filtered'. In my opinion!  ;)

Sounds like Neil Peart reviewed it, to me. :D

Fair enough. Yes - to be honest a whole book of your opinion is probably a bit too much to take  :).
Good luck with it though.

Eventually got around to reading some of Slim's book this morning. I've really enjoyed what I've read so far, more romantic, melancholic and softer than I'd imagined it would be but without being syrupy in any way. I'm looking forward to reading some more.


P.S. Loved the concise, yet perfect, summary of Feedback.

Slim is to be commended for writing a book, but surely you can't be surprised at a degree of negativity given his, ahem, combative posting style.

Well - I very much appreciate the kind words in this thread, and the constructive less kind ones ;-)
