About the Author:

Danny Dorling is a professor for the public understanding of social science at Sheffield University. He is the honorary president of the Society of Cartographers. In 2009 he was awarded the Gold Award of the Geographical Association and the Back Award of the Royal Geographical Society. He has advised government and the Office for National Statistics on matters relating to the census. His previous books include Fair Play and So You Think You Know About Britain?

Review:

"Social geographer Danny Dorling has produced the most densely factual book, not about the Tube itself, but the living conditions of those above. . . This book is an eye-opener about London now."  —Evening Standard

"The 32 Stops animates statistics, extrapolating sociological data into pithy vignettes of life along the Central Line."  —The Times


"Authors include the masterly John Lanchester, the children of Kids Company, comic John O'Farrell and social geographer Danny Dorling. Ranging from the polemical to the fantastical, the personal to the societal, they offer something for every taste. All experience the city as a cultural phenomenon and notice its nature and its people. Read individually they're delightful small reads, pulled together they offer a particular portrait of a global city."  —Evening Standard



"Geographer royal by appointment to the left."  —Simon Jenkins


"'The contrasts and transitions between books are as stirring as the books themselves. . . A multidimensional literary jigsaw."  —Londonist

"Eclectic and broad-minded. . . beautifully designed."  —Observer



"A collection of beautiful books."  —Grazia

"A fascinating collection with a wide range of styles and themes. The design qualities are excellent, as you might expect from Penguin with a consistent look and feel while allowing distinctive covers for each book. This is a very pleasing set of books." —A Common Reader


"A series of short, sharp, city-based vignettes - some personal, some political and some pictorial . . . each inimitable author finds that our city is complicated but ultimately connected, full of wit, and just the right amount of grit."  —Fabric Magazine
