Front Legs of The Cow goes Paperback!

Obviously a successful and well selling book to justify a paperback release....

To anyone who hasn't read this yet, get it now!!! Amazing read.

Use the amazon link on this site to buy it and the site gets a credit which goes toward its upkeep :)

Good news more sales should follow :o

I'll have to get round to writing a review for Amazon - also my promised review of TB or not TB :oops:

As far as I understand it, there has to be a certain number of hardback sales for a paperback release, so well done to Susannah, not that I ever doubted it. This is why Wilfrid's book ALL ABOVE BOARD never went to paperback - it didn't sell well.

I would happily sit here and slate this book if I hated it, without any problem, but there is no fault to be found in it. I am so reluctant to talk about details as I'd hate to give parts of it away, but it is a great book.

Never mind books, most big budget movies don't go to DVD this quickly!
That's extraordinary, very pleased it's paperback already, well done :)
Glad I got the cloth first edition though. Not just a remarkably well written volume, but well bound as well, weren't it?
Susannah's book isn't just essential reading for Steptoe fans or admirers of Harry's work. It's highly recommended to actors, to historians, to anyone that enjoys theatre and anyone that enjoys biographies.
If you're weary of "An Actor Prepares", try this one on.
You aint seen nuthin yet lol
