'Telling sketches of the nature of the people and the places, the joys and the pitfalls of living
in Crete abound and leap graphically from the pages..... And of course there is the advice.
Where to go, who to contact, and even more importantly, hints at what NOT to do and who
NOT to trust without careful thought in advance. Well written and exhaustively researched.'
