Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
If you are tired of London, are you really tired of life? 30-Second London agrees with Dr. Johnson's famous statement, taking the history of one of the most diverse cities on Earth and looking at the forces that shaped it, from the first traces of a Neanderthal settlement on the banks of the River Thames to today's vast and varied metropolis. Along the way, readers will discover underground London, secret London, suburban London, and much more, on a revealing whistlestop city tour.
