Outposts: Journeys to the Surviving Relics of the British Empire

Outposts: Journeys to the Surviving Relics of the British Empire - Simon Winchester I never thought I would say this about a book written by Simon Winchester, but it's boring. His pompousness (what's with former British colonies being "better" than their French/Dutch/Italian counterparts) I can take, but after reading a full sentence filled with names of obscure places that I don't care to know about, I decided that I didn't have the patience to go on with this book.
