I did not enjoy this book. I didnt like the way it was written. It jumped all over the place, from history to the then present, back to history again. Its full of assumptions and generalisations. The author makes it seem that the populace is made up of either the new rich or blue-collar workers, descendants of convicts.

Never mind the thousands of free settlers (who outnumbered the convicts) or middle-classes. Written with a vaguely patronising air (a whole chapter on Consolations). According to the author, Sydney serves no function or purpose and need not exist at all....

Its annihilation tomorrow would not deprive the world of anything essential. How supremely arrogant. Once I read that I threw the book away. Id already found something more worthy of my time.
