"City Book Review offers the absolute best promotional opportunities for both traditionally and independently published authors. They’ve built a stable of seasoned professional reviewers whose shrewed and sensitive coverage across a myriad of genres is second to none, rivaling the best Sunday book pages and other major web-based book sites. In this perceptive and witty book, Theodore Dalrymple unmasks the hidden sentimentality that is suffocating public life. Under the multiple guises of raising children well, caring for the underprivileged, assisting the less able and doing good generally, we are achieving quite the opposite-for the single purpose of feeling good about ourselves. Spoilt for Choice "not". Found it expensive and small portions, I will stay with the one down the road (tamarillo) which is also good for breakfast 4 reviews are hidden as the reviewers only posted rating and did not describe their experience.
