    If you want to do historical research, don t even bother with books written about the time period just go straight to the source This was first published in 1937, and it s the most brilliant window into the crazy world of Cambridge university in the 1930s or, at least, the subset of it that liked to go illegally climbing buildings in the middle of the night for fun Mr Whipplesnaith, on behalf of my fifth book, I salute you.

    A lovely, insightful peek into Cambridge and life in its colleges in the late 1920s and early 1930s I especially adored the old map at the back of th book Contains some unexpected but definitely very welcome life wisdom, too, which makes many parts of it very quotable.

    4 stars because it doesn t deserve a 3 While much of the time it really does serve as a sort of guide to climbing Cambridge and thus too technical and localised for the casual reader, who has never been to London, to appreciate , it also has hilarious anecdotes of pranks and thoughtful musings on fear and so on This little book is awesome because it speaks of boyhood youthful adventure, challenge, excitement, beauty, brotherhood, secrecy, and narrow escapes It s everything one could want 4 stars because it doesn t deserve a 3 While much of the time it really does serve as a sort of guide to climbing Cambridge and thus too technical and localised for the casual reader, who has never been to London, to appreciate , it also has hilarious anecdotes of pranks and thoughtful musings on fear and so on This little book is awesome because it speaks of boyhood youthful adventure, challenge, excitement, beauty, brotherhood, secrecy, and narrow escapes It s everything one could want in the growing up years At the same time, forthan a century and til the present it features a sport enjoyed by a select group of individuals under the cover of the night It offers us a glimpse into their secret lives, and one sort of is able to live vicariously through their exploits Perhaps it may even give us enough inspiration to make an amateur attempt of our own Now, on to Hederatus
