Johnson's Life Of London: The People Who Made The City That Made The World - Boris Johnson An entertaining and scattershot read that reminded me of the London Walks book and also The Story of England. Mayor Boris Johnson starts with the settlement of the Thames region and the reasons why London was settled, pays tribute to Boudicca and the great fire and plague and a really fascinating look at St. Pancras Station. I loved every story, except the Keith Richards one. I guess I'm not much of a Stones fan.It's a very quick read and you'll enjoy some of Johnson's odd turns of phrase.
