I've just finished Joe Brown's book and am looking for my next read does anyone have any suggestions?, to rule out others that I've read they are Jerry's, Ron's Andy Pollit's.

What are your favourite books?

Another vote for Tom Patey. He made me nostalgic for a time and place I was never part of, particularly the Cairngorms in the fifties.

To the OP: Jim Perrin's book about Whillans (The Villain?) is good.
