Blood, Sweat & Tea

by Suw on August 8, 2006

I had a little package turn up in the post this morning – a copy of Tom Reynolds' new book, Blood, Sweat & Tea. I was on my way out to give a presentation, so I took it with me to open on the Tube. Like Euan Semple, despite being a reader of Tom's for a long, long time, I couldn't help but start flicking through the book and, despite recognising some bits as posts I'd read before, I couldn't put it down. In fact, I nearly missed my stop because of it!
I remember when I first met Tom we had a chat about books. His blog was already getting quite a bit of attention and he'd had a publisher contact him about doing a book, but he said he'd turned them down because he wasn't interested in being a writer. At the time, I thought, 'Well, I guess it's not for everyone', but I'm glad that he reconsidered. Blood, Sweat & Tea is a great read – just as fascinating as Tom's blog, but a lot more portable. I would recommend most highly that you go out and buy it.
