Bravo Tim Cook

Occurs to me my note on the Taylor Prize yesterday may have seemed grudging towards the winner Tim Cook. I should say I'm terrifically impressed with Cook's achievement in those two books about the First World War: excellent history, excellent narrative, deeply felt -- and clearly reaching an audience too. And I say that having only (mea culpa) browsed in them.

I see in the press that Cook is just 37. The books are the fruit of ten years concentrated effort. Bravo! (as I should have said more loudly yesterday) The other nominees are no slouches either.
