    "Some Insights"

    I listened to this book on the plane ride back from London and found it interesting. So much of the London history books deal with kings and queens but this book discussed more the the architecture, business and sociological issues in the city.

    "Random Walk"

    Not a "concise history" - more of a random walk through some interesting and arcane bits of London's history. Marred by filtering historical events through 21st century culture, a tendency toward social commentary and biased architectural criticism.

    Nevertheless, worth adding to many other histories of London and worth a listen

    "Very Informative"

    I must admit the reason why I enjoyed this so much was the fact I was visiting London at the time I listened to it. I found it very informative and it truly enhanced my trip. I listened while I rode the train to nearby towns to London and every evening. I could picture some of the places that were mentioned, it was very relaxing.

    "So. So."

    Not very informative, nor very entertaining.
