It is his first book since her death. She was acknowledged
as his writing partner in many ways, helping him with the
editing and research, as well as sometimes even a co-author.
He also said that he would not write any more without her,
but he says now that his family changed his mind.
I think it's not nearly as good as his other books - but I felt the writing decayed noticeably over the last few books anyway
Brevity, clarity and cups of tea
