Christmas Thanks

I would like to express my sincerest thanks to all of you who’ve supported my website and recent book throughout 2018; it means a great deal to me.

If you’ve not yet picked up a copy, ‘The Knowledge: Train Your Brain Like a Cabbie‘- which is packed with history, trivia, maps and memory techniques all beautifully illustrated by Jamie Whyte– makes an ideal stocking filler!

Here’s what people are saying:

“If you love London, you will love this book”

“Using humour and anecdotes, Robert brings the process to life and gets over what it actually feels like to study the Knowledge”

“A fascinating look into the memory techniques used to complete the hardest map test in the world”

“Definitely recommended”

“I didn’t think there was so much to learn about the Capital”

“Reading it has inspired me to take a trip to London as soon as possible to visit some of the great places I’ve been reading about!”


The Knowledge: Train Your Brain Like a Cabbie is available both in bookshops and online.

Thank you so much again and I hope that you and your families have a wonderful Christmas and prosperous 2019.
