To those studying ‘The Knowledge of London‘ (the deeply intensive course which one must undergo in order to become a licensed London taxi driver), the examiners are godlike.
It is now possible to garner a glimpse into their mysterious world thanks to former examiner, Chris Ackrill who has just published his book; ‘From Manor House Station to Gibson Square- and back again‘.
In his book, Chris- who himself passed The Knowledge in 1988 and still works as a cabbie today- talks about his life which has taken many interesting twists and turns over the years- even including a stint in Louisiana, USA.
Candid, detailed and brimming with humour, his autobiography makes for a truly unique read.
