William McInnes writes great books! I enjoy his friendly easy style, and I love the way he makes me feel. I'm sure talking to him in person would be like talking to your best friend. The text is down to earth and flows easily from one subject to another. The chapters written by Sarah hit a part of me that really connected. This book has been an absolute pleasure to read, my only complaint..... I'd have loved to have seen more of Sarah's photos. ( )

In William's first book "A man's got to have a hobby" he wrote about family life in the 1960s with humour, affection and honesty.

It's about living for twenty years in the family home, raising children there, chasing angry rabbits around the backyard, renovations that never end. It is also about understanding that sometimes you have to say goodbye; that is part of life too.… (more)
