Even if he doesn't go into detail sometimes, that's fine - too much detail makes for a very dry book, and isn't necessary anyway. I haven't read anything else he's written, just because the content doesn't really appeal to me.

I also read Bill Bryson's 'Down Under' - A real insight into how Australia is perceived from an outsider's point of view.
