This is an unparalleled look inside the real life of working class Britons from ranging from just before the start of the Victorian era to just post WWI. While many of the pieces are excerpts from larger works, they still are both highly engaging and very enlightening, both as social history and as an insider view of labor and labor movements. The editor gives just enough info to put the pieces in context, but otherwise lets the writers' works stand on their own. As a primary source, or just enjoyable autobiographical reading, this is super. I strongly recommend if anything about working class history appeals to you.

The title of this book was enticing, however I was disappointed in the number of pages actually devoted to the autobiographies. Mostly, there were long Introductions to chapters that after the first one (which I read only 1/4), I skipped altogether. The autobiographies themselves were very interesting and enjoyable reads. The book was bought at a great price and shipped nicely, altho it did seem to be a longer than usual shipping time. But not terribly so.
