Muir's father was a deeply religious man but probably few Kindle owners will agree with his assertion, quoted here by his son, that 'The bible is the only book human beings can possibly require.'
The book is well presented for Kindle with both a navigable contents page and a good navigable index. Two glitches: In the first chapter some blocks of text have been transposed making several pages difficult to follow but past the first chapter there are no more such faults. And it is a bit disappointing that although there is a navigable list of illustrations the actual illustrations have not been included.
An enjoyable and recommended read.
It also shows his studious side, one led by creating physical artefacts for jobs to get through university and early employment, to be able to do what he really wanted to do.
Inspirational and moving.
A well written book which gave me hours of pleasure as I read it.
Leaving the bits of occasional out-of-date vocabulary aside, what an object lesson Muir is for many of today's English-teachers with their inadequate acquaintance with grammar and the paucity of their vocabulary and think of the effect on the school children.
