The bible is good for the experienced fan Nick, but it may be a bit dry for the beginner.

I occasionally come across notes in the Bible that make me laugh aloud or have to read them to my good lady wife.

Thanks. He's right of course, about the Classic Expressions' books - but I didn't want to say that in my list!
We're all waiting for Weir vol II - and have you seen the 2nd hand price of part 1? Ouch!
